In 1947, the first copies of the Ferrari 166 Inter were manufactured, a first model produced until 1953, totaling just 100 units.

We can offer you a Ferrari 166 Inter Lando, which is an international sports category racing car. This car is equipped with a 2.5-liter V12 engine, which develops 165 horsepower. It is capable of reaching a maximum speed of 250 km/h. The car is ready for delivery, and the price is 6,250,000 Italian lira.

It concludes with considerations on the import procedure into France.
