Classic Cars

250 TDF Ferrari’s top of the line street car of the era, which was comparatively mass produced. For competition purposes, however, an aluminum lightweight, aerodynamic body clothed the 250 drive train and chassis, and these cars become known by the moniker “TdF”, representing the namesake of the great French endurance contest which was a combination of many days of circuit and road racing. TdFs won the Tour de France outright no less than three times consecutively in 1957, 1958, and 1959. Additionally, Olivier Gendebien piloted his 250 TdF to third overall against many purpose-built sports racing cars in the final period running of the Mille Miglia.
