Sold through Portugal's Ferrari importer Joao A. Gaspar, this Vignale bodied 212 Inter was delivered to its first owner in Oporto in March of 1952. It boasts a unique, notchback design that combines the bottom half of a Cabriolet body with a fixed hard-top. In the subsequent years, it changed hands several times and in 1955, it was involved in an accident. Fully repaired, it was raced in Lisbon in the late 1950s but without success. Unusually, the car remained in Portuguese hands until the early 1990s when it was sold to Germany. Here the car was completely restored but still only rarely seen.

In 2011, the current owner added it to his impressive collection of Ferraris. Interestingly, this was the first car he bought that he had not seen in person when it was new and also the first Ferrari in his stable not clothed by Pininfarina. Restored once again, it was first shown at the 2013 Cavallino Classic where it received a platinum award. A few months later, it was rewarded second in class at Pebble Beach and at the 2014 Ferrari Nationals, it won Best of Show.
