Year: 1957

Duncan Hamilton a very pleased to offer this magnificent 250 TR .This car was built alongside the restoration of an original car between 1994 and 1996 for David Cottingham’s private collection, and was first registered on 25/9/96. With a Ferrari 250 GT (ellena)
identity the car was assembled using Ferrari running gear, engine, suspension, brakes and other such items (which are all correct for
a 57 TR). The car was built to be as close a copy as possible to an original in RHD configuration. Having restored several original
cars previously to this it meant that access was available to the actual tooling for many parts such as a chassis jig, body jig and various
key components. The car embodies many original TR parts, the engine has a genuine 128LM crank case and 1958 spec TR cylinder
heads. The car was raced four times in 1996 and then sold to an Italian collector in 1997. The car then returned to the UK in 2005
having been virtually unused during this time period. In 2007 the 0803GT received a thorough freshen up and engine rebuild ready
for use on events in Europe. In 2009 the car was purchased by Chris Evans the radio DJ and repainted in the traditional colour
scheme of white with blue racing stripes. A new style set of FIA papers accompany the car , it is HGPCA & VSCC accepted and is
eligible for races such as the BRDC and VSCC 50’s sports car series, the Ferrari Classic series the Woodcote trophy and possibly
the Goodwood Revival.
