The Ferrari 250 TR 61 Spyder Fantuzzi was a front-engined racing car made by Ferrari in 1961. Known for its distinctive "sharknose" which it shared with another Ferrari of the same era, the Ferrari 156.
This aerodynamic design was controversial and successful in racing, but Ferrari began changing the look almost immediately. Other, more conventional bodies were designed by Ferrari stalwarts, Pininfarina and Touring. The engine had the same displacement as the rest of the 250 series but was tuned to produce far more power. The front styling of the 250 TR61 pictured served as inspiration to the current Ferrari F430 road car.
