The 195 Inter models were basically larger engine versions of the equivalent 166 cars, and shared the same mechanical attributes, with the range of body design houses expanded to include Motto, and the Swiss Ghia Aigle concern, who each produced one example of their craft on a 195 chassis. With this model, the Vignale bodies seemed to find greatest favour with clients, as they outnumbered the Ghia examples produced. The 195 Inter models were produced during 1950-51, in the odd number road car chassis number sequence in the range of 081S to 0195S, with a total production of twenty five examples.

The V12 engine was increased in capacity to 2431cc, by increasing the bore diameter to 65mm, whilst retaining the 58.8mm stroke of the 166 engine. As with the 166 Inter, standard wear on the 195 Inter engine was a single twin choke carburettor, but some examples received a triple carburettor set-up, as with the earlier model. All versions of the engines now featured twin distributor and coil ignition systems, magneto ignition would now be used only very occasionally in subsequent years on a few competition cars. As with the 166 series of road cars, the 195 examples also saw frequent competition activity, at both amateur and professional level.
