1949 Ferrari 166 Inter Coupe


At the 1948 Turin Motor Show, Enzo Ferrari, by then 50 years of age, stood on the platform anxious about unveiling his new 166 series cars. Ferrari had already established himself as a formidable contender in racing, but he needed more resources to advance future competition efforts. Ready to build and sell production cars for public use, Ferrari designed a twin longitudinal tube chassis, enlisting Gilco to fabricate it, then ship it to Touring where the patented Superleggera coachwork would be assembled, finished, and applied to the chassis.
