1952 Ferrari 212 Inter Coupe By Ghia

A lot can be said about this car, but in short, it’s beautiful and everyone needs to be aware of its existence. Debuted as a show car by Ferrari the car would then be acquired by the President of Argentina, Juan Peron.

It is reported that it was at its debut at the Paris Motor Show in 1952 that President Peron first saw the 212 Inter he would later own. The car itself would first come to life earlier that same year by Ferrari and custom coach builder Ghia. It was Ghia that would be responsible for the styling and as a result the Virgil Exner design cues of the time are noticeable throughout the car.

There is a near endless amount of history that can be said about this car, and certainly worth a read here, but until then just bask in its glory.
