A garage in Suffolk is selling the ultimate toy to keep kids quiet this summer- a replica of a Ferrari Testarossa at the cost of around £75,000.

It's exactly half the size of a real one, exclusively designed in the 80's for Harrods of Knightsbridge at a cost of £35,000.

Now the mini classic is on sale at a garage in Boxford and is just one of three in the world.

It was made with 5-9 year olds in mind and it's top speed, powered by a lawn-mower engine, is 28mph, as opposed to 180mph.

"It's a real mini-classic, a unique little car with a terrific history - the makers had to get permission from Ferrari before they could build it.

It was in a poor state and has taken us a year to get all the parts needed to restore it to its former glory and put it back into showroom condition."

e are specialists in performance cars and have had many different makes and models in the garage but this unique little car is very special.

It may be classed as a toy but it is beautifully built and engineered and the attention to detail is quite remarkable.

"It needs a very young driver who will appreciate it and be able to use it - though of course it is not street legal and cannot be driven on the roads."
