We often see Chris Harris sliding around in the modern elite of supercars, but he eschews every bit of the cutting edge in his latest clip for the opportunity to get behind the wheel of an absolute classic. Harris drives a 1952 Ferrari 212 Barchetta with a body by Touring, and the Italian hills come alive with the sound of this little car’s beautiful music.
The V12 engine that’s nestled under the Barchetta’s hood might be short on displacement, but this thing can absolutely roar. It thunders down the road under hard acceleration and then makes a symphony of pops and snaps as the driver downshifts into a corner.
You can own this Ferrari, too. RM Auctions is selling it, but the reserve is somewhere between 5 million and 7 million euros ($5.6 million – $7.9 million). Given Harris’ proclivity to slide just about anything he drives, do you think he drifts this Barchetta? Watch the video to find out, and it’s probably worth turning up the speakers, too.
