Ferrari 166 MM Touring Barchettas - Click above for high-res image gallery

One of the featured groups of cars for Pebble Beach were a number of influential Ferrari models, and perhaps none were more so than the 166 MM Barchetta. Nicknamed the "Little Boat," the 166 MM was one of Enzo's very first race cars, and it put Ferrari on the map both as a race team and as a manufacturer.

The 166 MM featured a 2.00liter V12 underneath its long bonnet that produced 140 horsepower and 117 lb-ft torque. However, at just over 1400 pounds, it was quite formidable on the track. The 166 MM scored historic victories at the 1949 24 Hours of Le Mans and at the 1949 Mille Miglia (which gave it its name). Just 25 were produced in the late 1940s, and as only Pebble Beach can do, ten examples were on display on the 18th fairway. Our collection of photos from the historic gathering can be viewed in the high-res gallery below.

      This has always been the purest, best looking car in the world in my opinion, the 166MM.

      Too bad there are only 25 of them. And I wonder why there are so many replica Cobras out there and no replicas of these? Perhaps it's the shortage of 2-liter V12 engines...

      No photos of the engine bay? Sadness. As we seem to be entering into the final era of the ICE the world needs a last hurrah in the form of a modern take on the comical yet awesome idea of a 2.0L V12.

        I was just crying about that myself. I was hoping for a popped hood myself.

      Mr. Robert M. Lee of Sparks, Nevada, I'm giving you a firm cyber-handshake.

      Those Barchettas of yours are absolutely stunning. Thank you for keeping automotive history alive.
