Ferrari – 225 Sport Spider Tuboscocca


Vehicle Overview

Only about 20 examples of the 225S were constructed through 1952 and 19 of them, comprising of 12 Spiders and seven Berlinettas, were clothed with purposeful yet rather elegant bodies by Alfredo Vignale. This Spider, chassis 0192ET, is the sixth of the 12 Vignale Sport Spiders built, and its bodywork artfully blends form and function with the coach builder’s characteristic triple ovoid front-wing chrome portholes and such competition oriented features as a pair of small double air intakes on the hood, plus a pair of intake ducts for rear-brake cooling and twin rows of triple air outlets on the hood. The foundation of 0192ET was the highly specialised Tuboscocca’ frame layout, with double tubular outer members joined by a truss-type configuration, providing exceptional strength, and the skeleton’, supporting the body panels. The Tipo 212 gearbox was assembled on 20 March 1952, and on 20 March, the chassis was shipped to Carrozzeria Vignale in Torino to receive its bodywork. On 28 June, the engine was assembled and tested on 3 and 4 July, followed by an overhaul and further testing on 16 July. On 22 September 1952, 0192ET was sold by the Ferrari factory to first owner Giuseppe Viannini, an Alfa Romeo dealer domiciled in both Milan and Buenos Aires.
