Ok you guys get an A for effort and I'll have pity on you for this first one, the answer is so close you could trip over it.

The Ferrari 250 utilizing a prototype 3 litre, V12 engine, driven by Giovanni Bracco was used. I think the body work was modified as well.

Congratulations to mdhnn for the correct answer!

Everybody knows about the ramp but who knew it wasn't used until 1952!

Unaccustomed as I am ...


Seriously though, thanks for the challenge. I have 3 books on the MM but it still took quite a bit of reading to dig out this fact and I also was surprised at the late arrival of starting ramps.

Well done Dennis for setting the question (and for posting the MM history articles)!
