1969 Ferrari 212 E

The 212 E was built to compete in the European Mountain Championship.

Its two-litre 12-cylinder boxer engine was a development of the Formula 1 engine used in the 1965 World Championship. Driven by Peter Schetty, the car immediately proved very competitive, winning the Montseny, Rossfeld, Mont Ventoux, Trento-Bondone, Cesana-Sestriere, Friburg and Ollon-Villars hill climbs.

With such excellent results the car easily won the 1969 European title.
