  • This beautiful 212 Export Berlinetta Touring (S/N 0088E) placed second in class at the Stella Alpina Hillclimb in 1951 (5th overall), driven by Augusto Caraceni.

    In 1962 in made its way to the US, where it resided in Southern California, before under going a nut and bolt restoration costing in the region of $600,000.

    The car was repainted in this particular shade of red (called Amaranto), which returned the car back to the colour it was in 1952.

    This photograph is another taken in the early morning light on the Friday (as all the paddock photos from this series are) and to the right you can see one of the gate keepers, keeping a close eye on the access to and from the scrutineering area that is off behind the main pit areas.
