2533 - The first of the 'Tipo 3' cars built by the factory under the sponsorship of Temple Buell - as 2532. These cars are often called the 'Piccolo' cars. The cars were lighter, smaller, and had a shorter wheelbase than earlier versions of the 250/F. They were a rear guard reaction to the changes in the formula, particularly the shortened races distances. In common with some of the later cars, the driveshafts were angled slightly.
