Ferrari – 212 Export Spyder Motto


Vehicle Overview

Distinctive early Ferrari Spider has bodywork styled and crafted by Carrozzeria Rocco Motto of Torino – often referred to as ‘Ca-Mo’ – and unusually features an additional centrally placed long-range headlight in the lower radiator intake grille upon its nose.

The 212 Export model was powered by a new version of the classical Gioachino Colombo-designed, two-cam 60-degree V12-cylinder engine, displacing 2562cc. Most Exports were purchased for use in competition and so three Weber 32 DCF carburetors were normally fitted, and power output was a healthy 175bhp at 6,500rpm, transmitted through a slick-to-use Ferrari five-speed non-synchromesh gearbox. Typically weighing some ten per cent less than the ‘stock’ sister model 212 Inter, the competition-orientated Exports were capable of some 140mph and 0-60mph acceleration in as little as seven seconds. Production totaled only some 28 individual cars, of which only two are believed to have worn the Rocco Motto body style on this very important 212 Export.
