From Auto Concept Review: This clean and functional berlinetta body style by Pinin Farina first appeared on the 250 MM with 2.400 mm wheelbase and 200 hp 3.0 Litre engine. It participated in the 1952 Mille Miglia , Le Mans 24 Hours and Carrera Panamericana.
 
The Pinin Farina berlinetta body style started from the round radiator grille aperture feeding air to the engine compartment. The clean body flanks terminated in a curved wraparound rear end with a panoramic rear window. A cylindrical air scoop above the rear wheelarches ensures both brake cooling and suspension traveling. Nothing in this shape is superfluous, it looks like every surface shape is essential. MM goes for Mille Miglia and commemorates the 1950 and 1951 victory of Ferrari in this famous Italian endurance event.
