This 212 Export Berlinetta # 0096 E is one of the most beautiful handmade masterpieces ever made by Vignale. This car is an unique item and very important car of the early Ferrari history. It has the most important race career of the 212 Export and was the most successful Ferrari in private hands in 1951 and 1952. It is shown and pictured in the 1951 and 1952 Ferrari year books.
This is the "very best" 212 Export in existence talking about its most beautiful design as a "One Off", best race pedigree with amazing results, complete history, full matching numbers according to its Foglio Montaggio, original bodywork with its French Blue matching colour and its high level restoration.
Unbelievable is the fact that this Ferrari icon has an incredible race history without any race accidents and still having its original engine, gearbox, differential and aluminum body. This is more than difficult to locate in the Ferrari world.

First delivered to France to the famous early Ferrari racer Jacques Peron. It does also have a breathtaking race history with a 1st O.A. in the Ralley du Maroc 1951, 2nd O.A. in the first Tour de France in 1951 and last but not least 9th O.A. in Le Mans 1951. Beside this it shows another ten first places which are shown below.
It has been restored to the highest possible standard for Pebble Beach in the late nineties by famous and well known names in the Ferrari world. The technique has been restored in the US by San Francisco based Ferrari specialist Nino Epifani and the original bodywork has been overhauled by the most famous workshop in Italy of Dino Cognolato.

The later history shows famous names out of the Ferrari world which have shown this 212 Export Vignale Berlinetta successfully in the major Concourse as Pebble Beach, Meadow Brook, Cavallino Classic or Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este. Some of them liked to drive it more than once in the famous Mille Miglia, Tour de France, Colorado Grand, Monterey Historic Races or Rallye du Maroc
Classic where it was always working faultlessly.

This is definitely the "number one" 212 Export Berlinetta and should find a new home in one of the famous Ferrari collections.
