Watch This Legendary Ferrari Tear Up California's Coast

Meet the Ferrari 625/250 TRC. It's not just any Ferrari — it's the only one with a factory 250 Testa Rossa engine in it, and not coincidentally, it's the single most successful race car in the history of Ferrari. Let that one sink in for a minute. Our friends at Petrolicious were fortunate enough to lock down some time with the car. This is its story.

The short version is pretty easy to understand: this car started racing in 1957, and was still winning races in 1962. It's exceedingly rare for a single car to be so dominant for so long, which is what makes this one so special.

Aaron Miller is the Rides editor for Supercompressor, and he's convinced that a race car's exhaust cutting through the morning fog is the best sound on earth.
