Ferrari Test Track Electric Lap Record - The Ultimate Toy Car vs Fiorano | Top Gear

Ferrari’s official factory test track celebrates its 50th birthday this year. In that half-century, it’s welcomed F1 champions, racing car royalty and been the boot camp for the 288 GTO, F40, F50, Enzo and beyond. But in all those years, there’s never been an electric lap record at Fiorano. Not until TopGear decided to set one...

Since there’s no electric Ferrari road cars (yet) TopGear magazine’s Ollie Kew enlisted the help of Oxfordshire’s Little Car Company, which hand-builds scaled-down replicas of iconic classic for wealthy children – and big kids. Its fastest creation yet is this 75% model of a 250 Testa Rossa, complete with Brembo brakes, Borrani wheels, Eibach suspension and a mighty 16bhp. Plenty, when there’s no seatbelt.

It’s probably the ultimate toy car – and the most expensive, at £100,000 – but is it capable of setting a lap time on Ferrari’s hallowed tarmac that Enzo himself would be proud of?
