A brilliant red Barchetta from a better vanished time” sings Geddy Lee of Rush on the classic hard rock album Moving Pictures. The Barchetta is perhaps the most significant car in Ferrari history, the 166MM was Ferrari’s most potent sports car. It won the Mille Miglia (hence the MM) and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. At Le Mans Luigi Chinetti drove 23 of the 24 hours himself, only one hour was left for Lord Selsdon to meet regulations. Barchetta, the nickname given to the car by journalist Giovanni Canestini, translates to “small boat.” You can see the lines of the Barchetta in the cars of AC and the later Shelby Cobra. The roar of the V12 and the visually stunning lines make this Ferrari something any car enthusiast will be in awe of.
