Ferrari 166 MM 1949 Touring

Count Giannino Marzotto bought the Ferrari 166MM from Enzo Ferrari. Touring provided it with an aerodynamic coupé body in Touring Superleggera construction. The car had been presented at the 1950 Geneva Motor Show, and Count Marzotto's aim was to drive it to victory in the 1950 Mille Miglia.

He was not happy with the output of the 166MM, however, and so Ferrari provided him with a new V12 Type 195 Colombo engine. This proved a resounding success: Count Marzotto and co-driver Marco Corsaro in car N° 724 swept to victory in the 1950 Mille Miglia. Sporting the spurs of this challenging "1.000 mile race", the Ferrari was exhibited at the Turin Motor Show that immediately followed.

Whereas Raymond Sommer had been less successful in the 1950 Le Mans race, Marzotto went on to win the Rome 3 Hour race in 1950 as well. In the late 50s the Ferrari was deployed in smaller races in the USA before being sold to an American collector in 1965 along with its original engine of 1949.

The new owner kept the car until 2001. Today's owner acquired it in 2003 and had it completely restored to its original condition.
