    ferrari 166 inter coupe

    Comments and history courtesy of Ferrari historian - Marcel Massini:

    Ferrari 166 Inter Stabilimenti Farina chassis #021 S is one of the oldest Ferraris in existence. It actually is the 11th road car built by Ferrari (they used just odd chassis numbers, starting with 001, then 003, then 005, etc.). You must know that in 1947 the factory produced just 3 cars, in 1948 they built 5 units and in 1949 they built 21 cars. Not more than that! That adds up to a total of just 29 Ferraris manufactured in the first three years. Consequently 021 S is a super rare automobile and with the even more exclusive bodywork by Stabilimenti Farina can be considered a true gem!
