Man Builds His Own '59 Ferrari 250 Testarossa


Peter Giacobbi, an automotive engineer, found 1959 Ferrari Testarossa body shell that had been languishing in an Italian warehouse and set out to recreate his boyhood dream. Finding an original 3-liter motor proved impossible so he sourced a 4.4-liter, Ferrari 365 engine, giving the car over 400 hp, much more than it originally had. The result is a very hand made-looking but faithful reproduction of a classic Ferrari.

It's amazing to me that what in 1959 took a team of men to accomplish can now be accomplished by one man in his garage. And unless you have $35 million to spend on an original, this is the way it has to be done.
