An historic car has undergone a complete restoration at Ferrari’s headquarters in Maranello, Italy, and the results are simply stunning.
Built in April 1951, this stunning red Ferrari 212 Export Coupe Vignale was initially purchased by Antonio Mambretti Sozogni Juva, who sold it just a month later to the company of Duke Cesare d’Acquarone, according to a Feb. 9 press release from the manufacturer.

Once he purchased the car, originally a hardtop, the Duke of Acquarone had it transformed into a convertible, also known as a “Barchetta.” It has changed hands a few more times over the years, most recently coming into the ownership of a Brazilian collector. Though the restoration is complete, this collector agreed to allow the 212 to be displayed in the Ferrari museum at Maranello, and will not receive his completed car until April.
