Alongside his successful competition cars, Enzo Ferrari sold de-tuned race cars for road-going clientele and the 212 Inter was a classic example. It replaced the very similar type 166 Inter, and when there was a short supply of Ferraris, the road-going Inters served double-time and became track cars.
While the Inter and Export model frequently intermingled, there was one fundamental difference. The 212 Inter was a longer car, built to accept more accommodating and comfortable bodies. Its 2,600mm wheel base was unlike the Export model which had a wheelbase of only 2,250mm for racing on tight circuits. Both versions however had the same engineering characteristics, with twin oval tubular frames, independent front suspension, drum brakes and a potent V12 engine.
What makes the 212 Inter series so interesting are the individual differences between cars. Each was specially ordered
