1950 Ferrari 166 MM Berlinetta
Sale Price: $5,445,000
Auction: Gooding & Co., Pebble Beach
This Ferrari 166 MM was built in April 1950, making it the 18th of just 25 Barchettas built by Carrozzeria Touring. Purpose-built for competition, this example is finished in Italian racing red with the more Spartan “nude” interior, rather than the more luxurious Lusso treatment. The Barchetta (“small boat” in Italian) made its racing debut at the Mille Miglia on April 23, 1950. Since then it has established an impressive racing history and remains one of the few unrestored racing Ferraris.
