The Ferrari TRC-2500 is without a doubt the most sensationally performing sports car we have ever tested – and we have tested more sports cars than any one person or organization that we know of.

This special race car is now owned by Bruce Meyer who showed it to me one day a few years ago.

  1. Guess these cars don’t need license plates?

    • Looks great in silver. You have to wonder how good/poor the handling was if Bizzarrini was given the task to build a car that could beat the D type. Is the GTO that much better, maybe Tom Price can tell us as he owns both.

      • Jack Johnsen says:

        I saw this car race many times In southern California at tracks Like Santa Barbara, Pomona Palm springs,back in the late fifties and early sixties… It won every time if it lasted…It was always silver….
