Ferrari 212 Inter Europa Vignale Coupé 1952

RM Sotheby’s Scottsdale auction is well known to host some of the worlds finest and most exclusive vehicles on their stage. Recently a Ferrari 212 Inter Coupe by Vignale was brought through for sale. This vehicle may not be familiar to most people because the 212 was made during a time when Ferrari was solely a shop building cars for racing and put out some vehicle for sale to the public to keep the racing funded.

The 212 Inter Coupe is a car that has all the guts of a Ferrari but the body work from Vignale. The one at Sotheby’s Auction is number 23 of the 26 Ferrari 212 ever made. The car itself has a rich production history as well as history of ownership. Pennsylvania State Senator Theodore Newell Wood was once the owner of this vehicle. Since the 70’s the car has gone through multiple owners and finally finding its home in California 20 years ago. This particular 212 has been meticulously maintained throughout it’s lifetime.

This particular example is likely to sell for upwards of $1.5 million.
