Ferrari 250 TR - 1958 Le Mans - 'Lucybelle II' - Race Weathered
A special edition of three race weathered Ferrari 250TRs, 'Lucybelle II', as raced at the 1958 24 Hours of Le Mans. This unique edition of only three models was been meticulously hand-painted and detailed by our master model makers to show every detail of the race dirt as the car drove at high speed through the atrocious conditions.
Each of the three models was accompanied by an archive quality Giclée print of the car mid-race, selected by the curator at Motorsport Images.
During this exciting year for the Maranello giant, in which the Prancing Horse dominated the World Sportscar Championship, the ‘Lucybelle II’ was entered for the 24 Heures du Mans by privateer Ed Hugus under the race number ‘22’. To set the scene, the La Sarthe race of that year attracted a huge crowd of some 150,000 spectators, gathered in anticipation of an exciting and closely matched dual between Ferrari, Jaguar, Aston Martin and Porsche. In and amongst this background of similarly paced works race teams, the Lucybelle, piloted by Ed Hugus and team mate Ray ‘Ernie’ Erickson, achieved a commendable seventh place overall. The Scuderia Ferrari, who had a bumper entry of 11 cars in the race, made up of both works entries and privateer teams, eventually won the race.
This fine 1:8 scale model of the Ferrari 250 TR has been handcrafted and finished in our workshops with the co-operation and assistance of Ferrari regarding original finishes, materials, archive imagery and drawings. The use of supremely accurate digital scanning of the original car has allowed us to perfectly recreate every detail at scale. Furthermore, it has undergone detailed scrutiny by both Ferrari’s engineering and design teams to ensure complete accuracy of representation.
The Race Weathered Ferrari 250TR 'Lucybelle II' is limited to just three pieces.
