A world expert in producing exceptional electric junior cars in partnership with leading elite car manufacturers, The Little Car Company’s scaled-down models pay tribute to coveted classics, enabling the joy of driving to be shared across generations.
The launch of its special edition Ferrari Testa Rossa J Pacco Gara celebrates the racing pedigree of the Prancing Horse’s three-time Le Mans-winning legend, the 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa, one of the most illustrious cars of the 1950s and 1960s.

A more powerful evolution of The Little Car Company’s Ferrari Testa Rossa J, a fully-electric 75% scale reproduction of the original 250 Testa Rossa and limited to 299 models.
The new Pacco Gara (Race Pack) is an optional upgrade, which brings improved aesthetics and performance, and enhancements including boosted power output to 14kW, a quicker ratio steering rack and drilled brake discs creating a more responsive and track-focused car.
Indeed, while not registered for public roads, driving the Pacco Gara edition on a track was an enjoyable and exhilarating experience. Reaching a top speed of 55mph with the addition of adjustable dampers and brake bias, it demonstrated it is much more than just a ‘toy’.
These advanced features enable the driver to tune the balance of the Pacco Gara model, bringing them closer to the invigorating feel of the original car.
Other racing features include a bolt-on, removable roll cage; a Sabelt racing harness used in the Scuderia’s F1 cars; and an additional rear-view mirror. A tonneau cover over the passenger side has also been incorporated, in the same Ferrari leather as the interior of the car.

While each car is handcrafted in the UK at Bicester Heritage – a hub of historic motoring excellence and innovation – The Little Car Company collaborated with the engineers at Maranello to curate and build this special edition, with the Ferrari team supplying the pedals and Prancing Horse badge, plus selecting the Pacco Gara name. This close relationship guarantees every vehicle is an official licensed product of Ferrari.
What’s more, in keeping with Ferrari tradition, a range of customization options are available, including iconic racing liveries that have been applied to the Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa throughout history. You can also match the color and trim of your Testa Rossa J Pacco Garra with your own Ferrari.
Ben Hedley, CEO of The Little Car Company, commented: “Our team has worked meticulously to ensure that each new feature of the Pacco Gara enhances the driving experience of the Testa Rossa J.
“Every element of the Pacco Gara has been developed with, and signed off by, the team at Maranello and is focused on paying homage to one of history’s great racers, while also offering drivers a substantial, tangible taste of what it feels like to be behind its wheel.”
The level of care and attention to detail stands out, delivering the stunning quality and outstanding engineering for which The Little Car Company has become renowned.
From the simplicity of changing the batteries, to the deep shine of the paint, and the option of smart and secure personalized shipping cases for transporting the cars, no expense has been spared, which is reflected in the $132,000 price tag (excluding taxes and delivery fees).
