Update: The April game update makes all of the initial 200 cars that launched with Forza 5 available as rental cars so it's no longer necessary to use the "rental glitch" if you don't own the car that is required for this achievement.

Go to Free Play
Car: 1965 Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe
Track: Any track. The Top Gear West Circuit is recommended.
Rounds: 1
Drivatars: 15 (To increase the chance of a Ferrari opponent. Restart the race if there's no Ferrari opponent. Alternatively you can use a 2nd controller and select a Ferrari opponent manually.)
Drivatar Difficulty: Easy

If you don't own the car select "Rent Car" and choose any car (the Shelby isn't available there). Then select "Buy Car" and choose the Shelby. Before selecting a design press "B" until you're back at the main menu of Free Play. The Shelby will be your car now.
Finish the race in front of the Ferraris to unlock the achievement.

Difficulty New Racer
Race Length - :30 seconds (Depending on the track you may have to adjust this to 1 minute or more)
Car class - B

Accept and then make sure to skim through the AI cars and make sure there is a Ferrari in the group then start the race. I started the race in 16th place and was able to pass one of the Ferrari's before the 30 seconds was up but if you aren't fast enough or the Ferrari is too far ahead, you may have to adjust the time to 1 minute. The achievement will pop when the race is over if you are ahead of a Ferrari.
