Known History

Ferrari made its debut in 1947 with the Tipo 125S and started business by offering its cars for sale to the public. In the following year, this car had a major evolution to become the famous 166 series. The 166 Inter is a Grand Touring road car and many famous coachbuilders in Italy have created special elegant bodies on its running chassis. One of the most well known of its kind is this 166 Inter Coupe by Vignale. Vignale is the name of the famed carrozzeria (coachbuilder) Alfredo Vignale. The design of this coupe was the collaboration of Alfredo and the up and coming stylist of the time, Giovanni Michelotti. Together they made many special bodies for Ferrari and these cars were loved by connoisseurs, as they continue to be to this day.
