The Colombo 2.6 L (2563 cc/156 in³) V12 used in the Export had an 8.0:1 compression ratio, up from the 7.5:1 ratio used in the Inter. Rather than the Inter's 150 bhp (112 kW) at 6000 rpm single Weber 36 DCF carburetor engine, most Exports were fitted with a more complicated three Weber setup yielding 175 bhp (130 kW; 177 PS) at 6500 rpm.
Twenty-eight 212 Export models were built, most of them used in competition.
In 1951, 212 Exports took the first three places in the Tour de France automobile racing event and won the Giro di Sicilia and the Giro di Toscana motor races.
