Only two 625 TRC race cars were made, and both were sold in 1957. The car was an evolution of the iconic 500 TR Testarossa500 TestarossaFerrari 500 TestarossaItaly, 1955 > 19557 photos
. This car comes fitted with a 3.0l V12 with 320hp, but it also comes with its original Lampredi 2.5l inline-four engine with 225hp, if the buyer wants to be more authentic. The car was raced by privateer Johnny von Neumann in 1957 and 1958 winning three times and taking second or third in four races. 

The top cars at the R&M Auction were almost all Ferraris. A 1966 206 Dino S SpyderDino 206SFerrari Dino 206SItaly, 1966 > 19663 photos
