ferrari 1948

The artistry of some folks never ceases to amaze, Yoshiro Inomoto is one of the best of the ‘cutaway artists’, this is his Ferrari 166S…

Three cars were built using a 2 litre version of the Colombo 60 degree V12 giving circa 150bhp@7000rpm.

The first two were bodied by Carozzeria Allemano and were successful; the cars won both the 1948 Targa Florio, Troubetzoy/Biondetti in a 166S and Mille Miglia, Biondetti/Navone in a 166 Coupe. Both race winners were destroyed, of the 3 cars only the ‘goggle-eyed’ one drawn by Inomoto survives.
