The Ferrari 212 Export wis a racin sports caur produced bi Ferrari in 1951 tae replace the 195 S. It haed a shorter wheelbase than the road-oriented Ferrari 212 Inter model, which wis a Grand tourer.

The Colombo ingine uised in the Export haed a 8.0:1 compression ratio, up frae the 7.5:1 ratio uised in the Inter. Customers who wantit the Export tae be a faster GT than the Inter ordered the ingine wi ane Weber 36 DCF carburetor, which wad gie a pouer ootput o 150 bhp at 6000 rpm. Maist Exports wur uised in competeetion an wur fittit wi a mair complicated setup wi three Weber 32 DCF carburetors, yieldin a pouer ootput o 175 bhp at 6500 rpm.
