Modena (I), 16th May, 2022
Like last year, only a small number of cars, 26 in total, will be participating, picked for their historic
significance and beauty. They are, indeed, some of the most important Ferraris ever built, such as the 166
MM (chassis #0040 MM) built in 1950 by Carrozzeria Touring for the Ferrari racing team, which used it, with
Luigi Villoresi at the wheel, to compete in the 34th Targa Florio. After an accident at the 1950 Mille Miglia, it
was re-bodied by the same coachbuilder, still as a Barchetta. During the car’s stint as works car, its engine
was updated, first to the 195 and then the 212 specifications. In the summer of 1950, it was sold to
Portuguese gentleman driver Vasco Sameiro, who used until 1954, competing in several races. The car has
been part of the same English collection for the past 35 years.
Exceptionally, the show will also include, outside the competition, a Fiat Nuova Campagnola (chassis #1107A
0014838). For at least three decades, this vehicle, as part of the internal fire-fighting team, was a fixture in the
background of all photographs taken at the Fiorano circuit, and even though it was not built by Ferrari, it has
rightfully been invited to participate in recognition of its service.
