Maranello sees the arrival of electric sports cars with confidence and immediately puts the word into action, although the new Ferrari Testarossa is not exactly what you expect from it.
A Ferrari is never cheap, but the 1957 250 Testa Rossa is almost priceless. Count on tens of millions of euros, if you find a copy for sale at all. Although Maranello does adapt a sleeve with this J, short for Junior. Developed in collaboration with The Little Car Company, this Ferrari Testa Rossa J is a hand-built 3/4 scale replica of the original, fitted with an electric drive unit. So without red valve cover.
Performance and range
You have four different driving modes at your disposal: in Beginner the Testa Rossa J stops at 25 km/h, in Comfort this Ferrari drives 45 km/h and in both Sport and Race you reach a top speed of 60 km/h. The battery pack promises a range of approximately 90 kilometers. You can drive it from the age of 14, according to Ferrari. Even if you stay off the public road, because Junior is not street legal.
Although the still 3.1 meter long Junior is a lot cheaper than the Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa on which it is based, this electric toy racer remains very expensive. The edition is limited to 299 pieces and each copy has a price tag of 93,000 euros. How did we start this article again… that a Ferrari was never cheap.
