The 250 S was based yet again on the designs of Gioachino Colombo developed Aurelio Lampredi with a three-litre Ferrari V12 and coachwork by Vignale and Touring.
Nineteen fifty-two proved a great year for Ferrari with Bracco delivering a magnificent performance on the Passo della Futa to win the 1952 Mille Miglia and Ascari turning in the fastest circuit at Le Mans.
The constant improvements made to the 250 S over its racing career eventually led to the building of the 250MM.
