    This is 0110E. I used to know her when she was black (previous owner).
    The 212 Export was a competition chassis that used various configurations in production; barchetta, berlinetta, spyder, and cabriolet. 27 cars were made between 1951 and 1952.
    Two cars on that chassis carried road bodies; 0106E and 0110E. They are virtual twins. Wolves in sheep's clothing, if you will.
    There are other, similar looking Vignale cabriolets from this period that ride on other Ferrari chassis, but there are only 2 212 Export Vignale Cabriolets.
    0106E lived in England for a long time and 0110E was in Germany. These days they are both in the USA.
    Two absolute gems and very special cars.

    Someone should build a watch based on those gauges, I'd buy one immediately.

    There is only a wrong detail on this car: the French "F" on the trunk doesn't match with an Italian license plate.

    Disagree.
    0110 E was sold new on the 17th July 1951 to first owner Jorge Da Cunha D’Almeida Araujo, who was the Portuguese ambassador in FRANCE. Car registered on ITALIAN license plates of Modena "MO 25509".
    Factory period photo shows the "F".

    It s your opinion, and I respect it. I don t know if the car used French plates during is small apparence in Paris. Probably not, probably a diplomatic plates.

    The wrong detail in this car is the colour. Originally black and not burgundy.

    The original color was not black. It was Carminio 1141 Lechleroid which is dark red. See second from left on bottom line.

    Well, it seems people above thinking black ...
    Picture above show a black car.

    Anyway, the important question is to know is the car today gets original colour?

    Burgundy Vs Carminio.

    Great chart of colour, is it you © picture?
    If yes, I will Photoshop with carminio to see the effect on it
