Chassis no. 0279EU, presented here, features the most desirable late-production specifications, including three competition-style Weber 36 DCF3 carburettors, good for an additional 40 hp over earlier models. The beautiful coupé body was produced by Pinin Farina, one of 17 finished by that firm, and was finished in delightfully subtle Azzurro with a pale grey roof and Marrone leather interior.

After appearances in period Ferrari factory literature, in which it was pictured at rest in the public gardens of Modena, the car was shipped to the U.S. and sold by Chinetti Motors to its original owner, the aptly named Bruno Ferrari of Latrobe, Pennsylvania. Ferrari sold the car in 1960 and it moved to California, where it had several owners over the next three decades before joining the current owner’s esteemed collection in 2006. Interestingly, it was actually exhibited at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in 1961, at a time when that event was little more than a small local charity sports car show – and a used 212 Europa was right at home!
