1949 Ferrari 166 Inter Coupe
Coachwork by Touring of Milan

Chassis no. 029S

Engine no.029S

Price: €325,000

One of the earliest chassis to emerge from the workshops of fledgling sports car constructor Enzo Ferrari, this coupé wears elegant two-seat granturismo coachwork from one of the finest styling studios of the era, Touring of Milan. Rich in handcrafted detail, from its jewel-like V12 engine to the refined appointments of its cloth trimmed passenger cabin, everything about this pioneering Ferrari speaks of quality reserved for the very few, a far cry from the volume-produced offerings of later years.

Chassis ‘029’ was sold new to a gentleman in Rome and displayed at the 1950 Turin Motor Show before leaving for America, where it introduced what was to become Ferrari’s most important market to the marque of the prancing horse. Following its return to Europe in the late 1980s and its subsequent restoration to ‘as new’ condition by renowned specialist Dino Cognolato of Padova, ‘029’ has been admired at events ranging from the Tour Auto to Ferrari’s 60th anniversary concours in Maranello where it took 2nd in class.

Ready to be driven or shown, this rare early survivor represents an important milestone in Ferrari’s illustrious history and is still presented in faultless conditon.
