1949 Ferrari 166 MM Barchetta
The 166 MM features an overhead cam V-12 engine similar to those of its predecessors, but weighed substantially less thanks to its superleggera (“superlight”) body by Carrozzeria Touring of Milan. The compact, streamlined coachwork was described by a journalist as a barchetta (“little boat”), a term now used for any open Italian two- seater. The “MM” in the model designation stands for Mille Miglia, an iconic Italian long- distance race won by this car in 1949.
