Hi Brian,
Quote from Motor Sport Magazine:
In 1959 Koni began its long relationship with Ferrari in F1, the 8211 competing in its first Grand Prix at Monza that year with Belgian driver Olivier Gendebien at the wheel of the Dino 246.

Once the 8211 had thoroughly proved itself, though, the obvious development was to make the switch to the lighter body material. This Koni duly did in 1967, giving birth to the 8212 – the first example of which, No 1003, was manufactured for a Ford GT40 Mk1 on 3 January that year.
