Beautifully crafted and highly detailed, this car makes a great collectible or gift for any auto enthusiast. Actual Car Information: The 166 MM Barchetta is considered the first Ferrari sports car. It was officially introduced at the Turin salon in 1948. Barchetta, in Italian, means little boat. Weight and wind-resistance were kept to a minimum, and any unnecessary equipment or decoration was sacrificed to performance.
Typically hand-made in aluminum on a tubular frame, the classic Barchetta body is devoid of bumpers or weather equipment such as canvas top or sidescreens. The MM in the car’s designation stood for Mille Miglia, the race it won in 1948 and 1949. Only 47 cars were made until 1953. Top speed was 220 km/h. On June 26, 1949 the 166MM Barchetta won the 24 Hours of Le Mans driven by Luigi Chinetti and Lord Selsdon. During that race, Chinetti drove for 22 on 24 hours. It was the first time that Ferrari took part to the Le Mans competition.
