166 Spyder Corsa, the world’s oldest Ferrari which was made just after the 2nd world war by manufacturer Enzo Ferrari and also the winner of 1947 Turin Grand Prix has been unveiled for the first time for 500,000 dollars by one dedicated owner since being completely restored.
The car’s owner Jim Glickenhaus, from Pebble Beach, California said:
I bought the car at auction in 2004 for around 770,000 dollars. As soon as I set eyes on it there was love at first sight. There is no other car like this on the planet. To sit in it is like going back in time – and this car is a dream to drive. Whenever people see this piece of history being driven in the street it brings a smile to their faces.
The 166 Spyder Corsa numbered 002 was first sold by Enzo Ferrari in 1947 and is capable of achieving the speed of 160 kmpl. Powered by 12-cylider engine, the 166 Spyder Corsa still has the original chassis, engine, gearbox and most of the mechanical pieces.
