1950 Ferrari 166 Inter

Racing takes money, which is why Enzo Ferrari produced the 166 series, created to be the company's bread-and-butter. The knowledge that was gained by racing was incorporated into the next series of road-destined vehicles.

The Inter was a street version of the 166. Thirty-seven 166's were built, with seven different kinds of bodies fitted to it.

The 166 does have some racing history behind it. It won the Mille Miglia in 1948 and 1949 as well as the Giro d'Italia. The 166 also won the Spa 24-hour race in 1949.
