1956 Ferrari 250 GT TdF

Chassis number : 0555

Share on:

Ferrari's iconic dual-purpose grand touring racer is still known as the 'TDF' (Tour de France), an event the 250 GT won overall from 1956 through 1964. Powered by Ferrari's potent Colombo-designed 2953 cc V-12 engine the successes of the 250 GT led to the creation of the 250 GT Competizione.

This is just one of eight created by Scaglietti in 1956. Its hefty competition resume begins with the Mille Miglia (1957) where it was raced to seventh overall (third in class) by Paolo Ferrara completing the fabled 1,000-mile lap of Italy in just under 11 hours and 31 minutes. Overall and class wins came in the 1958 Monte Pellegrino and the 1959 Avola-Avola Hillclimb with additional wins in the 1959 Targa Florio in Sicily plus the 1959 Catania-Etna and Targa Busento, the 1960 Targa Busento, the 1960 Coppa Nissenbaum, the 1961 Pellegrino, the 1961 Catania-Etna and the 1961 Valdesi Saint Rosalia.

The 250 GT Comp cars were the true forerunners of the series of race cars which established Ferrari as a major force in Sports Car Racing.

This vehicle, chassis number 0555, has an extensive race history including seventh overall in the 1957 Mille Miglia, 1st GT in the Targa Florio and numerous other victories from 1956 through 1961. Originality is another virtue of TDF 055; it retains its original matching chassis, engine, gearbox, rear end, and frame.
