Serial # 0143/E originally raced by its first owner in 1951 in Italy is currently in its original combination of Touring Blue with Blue leather interior and Blue carpeting, RHD, 2.5 liter 12 cylinder engine and 5-speed gearbox.

This 212 has been fully restored with all photo documentation, it is superb throughout. This 212 was originally fitted with one Weber carburetor. This original ôCorsa (race)ö engine was retrofitted to three Weber carburetors as documented by the factory just prior to being given by Enzo Ferrari to team racing driver Mike Hawthorn for his personal use.

In 1953 this 212 E was used as the factory Mille Miglia practice car by Mike Hawthorn and Hans Tanner, upon leaving the Ferrari factory racing team in 1953, this car was purchased by Mike Hawthorn for his personal use and enjoyment.

This 212 is a numbers matching example and all body panels are original. This is quite possibly the finest original example of an early racing Ferrari in existence with its obvious exceptional and unquestionable provenance.

Included with this example are period factory build sheets, correspondence from the factory stating its special one-off body by Touring of Milan, original Motorsport magazine article and road test from 1953 and its original data plaque from Touring of Milan.

Having been shown at Pebble Beach, The Cavallino Classic and Amelia Island in 2003-2004 its restoration is to top show-concours quality. This is a rare opportunity to acquire an exceptional and historically significant example of a vintage Ferrari that will become a welcomed addition to any vintage event world-wide, including the Goodwood revival and Mille Miglia Retrospective. This 212 is priced accordingly with respect to its condition and provenance.
