A 1 of 4 Ferrari 212 Inter bodied by Italian coachbuilders Carrozzeria Alfredo Vignale will go under the gavel at RM Sotheby’s upcoming Monaco auction, joining several other valuable Ferraris that will cross the auction block during the March sale.
Vignale wasn’t a commonly used coachbuilder for Ferrari, but they did complete 36 total 212s for Maranello, four of them being cabriolets. The example to be sold by RM, serial number 0227 EL, was first sold to John McFadden, an Englishman residing in Paris. It has passed through numerous hands over the years and underwent a full restoration in 1980 before landing in the hands of its current owner, who has owned it for more than 30 years.
All 212 Inters came equipped with Ferrari’s 2,562 cc SOHC V12 engine, which sent 170 horsepower to the rear-wheels thorugh a five-speed manual transmission. It’s not clear how many miles this particular example has turned, however it carries a full documented history and is also Ferrari Classiche certified.
Considering its rarity and original condition, this 212 Inter Cabriolet will easily sell for $1 million plus when it goes under the gavel next month. Click here for amore information and photos.
