Scottsdale, 1 January, 2014

Following the recent news of impressive consignments to the Bonhams 2014 Scottsdale Auction, Bonhams is very pleased to announce the consignment of the exceptional 1951 Ferrari 212 Export Touring Berlinetta chassis number 0088E, better known as “The Tailor's Car.”

... MediaCenter Scottsdale Auction Gallery Lot by Lot >>>

This remarkable racing-bred V-12 Ferrari was delivered new to Italian tailor and racing driver Augusto Caraceni of the eponymous fashion house. Founded in 1913 by Domenico Caraceni, “The Father of Italian Tailoring”, the House of Caraceni made bespoke suits for some of the best dressed and most recognizable men of the 20th century, including Enzo Ferrari, Gianni Agnelli (known for being a fashion icon as much as the director of FIAT), Gary Cooper, Aristotle Onassis, Prince Rainier of Monaco, and even Yves St. Laurent.
Domenico’s son, Augusto Caraceni, steeped in the family business, knew good design when he saw it. So when a car was needed to compete in the 1951 Stella Alpina, it was this sports racing Ferrari clothed in the legendary Berlinetta body by famous Milanese coachbuilder Touring that was selected by one of the most renowned sartorial names in the world.

Just four of these even-numbered competition models were created in Berlinetta form, which was Touring’s first closed racing model built for Ferrari. Using a shorter and more rigid chassis, they received a highly tuned version of Colombo’s 212 engine featuring a triple carburetor setup, higher compression and dry sump lubrication. The lithe Touring Supperleggera Berlinetta bodies had racing features such as Plexiglas windows and quick-release fuel filler, and an interior stripped of most creature comforts. The result was a car nearly 200 kilograms (440 lbs.) lighter than the road version, and historically a very important part of Ferrari's early racing efforts on their road to domination.
In current ownership since 1969, this even-numbered, competition-built Berlinetta still retains its original Touring coachwork and matching-numbers engine and drivetrain, and has now been restored to the absolute highest and most correct standards. This exceptional Ferrari would be a welcomed entrant to the most discerning shows, like the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance or the Cavallino Classic, or a perfect entry to the most exclusive rallies and racing events worldwide, such as the Mille Miglia.
