1950 Ferrari 166 MM Berlinetta Le Mans | Pebble Beach Auctions 2022



The 1950 Ferrari 166 MM Berlinetta Le Mans presented here, chassis 0066 M, is the last of just five 166 MM chassis originally fashioned with Touring’s Berlinetta Le Mans coachwork.

Since its completion, 0066 M has led an extraordinary existence, competing in European rallies and Italian hillclimbs with its first owners, including the Trieste-Opicina Hillclimb and the Coppa d’Oro delle Dolomiti in the early 1950s. In the US, 0066 M has been a fixture in the collections of notable enthusiasts, including Fred Leydorf, John Bond, and Chip Connor, during which time it has been meticulously cared for, and even featured in the pages of significant motoring magazines like Road & Track and Prancing Horse. This important, even-serial-number Ferrari competition car beautifully presents today in traditional Italian racing red, and is Ferrari Classiche Red Book certified, confirming that it retains its original chassis, body, engine, gearbox, and rear end.

This rare competition Berlinetta, which has remarkably survived the past seven decades, presents the chance of a lifetime to acquire an important piece of early Ferrari history at auction.
