1958 Ferrari 250 Tour de France at Hershey

Ferrari 250 TDF Hershey 2

Similar to the modern F12 TDF, the 250 Tour de France was the hardcore version of the Ferrari 250 grand touring lineup in the late 1950s. The difference was that 250 TDFs were actually built for competition in the biggest races of their day, such as the Mille Miglia. This was literally a road-going GT car turned into a full-on racecar, rather than “just” a more focused track day car like the modern F12. The world has changed a lot since the 1950s, though, as you could actually drive most racecars on public roads back then. I just love the idea that you could drive this 250 TDF to the race, compete flat-out, and then drive the car home afterward (if it was still in one piece).

Also, road or racing, the 250 TDF makes it look so damn good…
