Chassis: 0680MDTR
The second 625 TRC, this example made its competition debut in Austria where Von Neumann finished best in class in a hill-climb. The car was then shipped to the United States where Von Neumann campaigned it mostly in local events. The four-cylinder engine was subsequently removed and in 1960 the car was sold on to Stan Sugerman. Fitted with a Chevrolet V8, he continued racing chassis 0680MDTR for another two seasons. Passing to more hands, the car's contemporary racing career did not end until the mid-1960s.

A decade later, a Ferrari 250 GT sourced V12 filled the void left by the original 'four'. In 1981, the 625 TRC was acquired by Michael Callaham. He had the car meticulously restored and prepared for racing. From 1985, Callaham and the V12-engined Ferrari had been regulars in North American Historic events, and in particular the Monterey Historic Races / Motorsport Reunion. Callaham eventually also managed to track down the original 625 engine but continued to race with the more potent and forgiving V12. In 2012, he decided to part with the car, and original engine, and it was offered in RM Auctions' biennial Monaco sale. Well exceeding the pre-sale estimate, it eventually found a new owner for just over EUR 5 million.
