This was the first 250F with the riveted rear fuel tank. Marimón was driving 2512 at the time he crashed and was killed.
Sergio Mantovani was driving 2512 when he crashed at Turin, suffering massive leg injuries and effectively ending his career when one leg was amputated.
It dropped from sight in mid-1955 and was re-numbered as '2518'. This was the streamliner (monoposto aerodinamica) used at Monza and Siracusa.
In the Summer of 1956, the chassis was damaged by a fire and subsequently scrapped by the factory. The streamliner bodywork was discarded by the works and not retained.
