Chassis: 0090E
Featured is a 212 Export that was delivered new to Count Umberto Marzatto in this fabulous two-tone green livery on May 22nd, 1951. He raced the car at various local events including the Coppa d'Oro delle Dolomiti. Its striking paint-scheme earned it features in two major magazines of the day. The best result for this small racing car was a victory in the Trieste-Opicina hillclimb in September of 1951. Count Marzotto held on to his prized possession for another couple years, but eventually decided to sell the 212 Export in 1956.

Towards the end of the decade, the Ferrari was exported to the United States. It has remained in American ownership ever since. Like many other 212 Exports, this Vignale Spyder had its engine upgraded from the standard single Carburetor setup to a more potent triple Weber setup. The car was also repainted red. In recent years chassis '0090E' was completely restored to its original specification and livery. Since then the two-tone Spyder has been shown at a wide variety of events with great success, including the 2005 Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este where it won the 'Coppa d'Oro.'
