1950 Ferrari 166 MM/212 ‘Uovo’

Back in the ’40s and ’50s, four brothers were making waves in the racing world as some of the greatest to ever get behind the wheel. The Marzottos, as they were called, were also inexorably important to Ferrari’s development as a company, as they each purchased multiple Prancing Ponies for themselves. This vehicle, a 1950 Ferrari 166 MM/212 called “Uovo,” might be the brothers’ most significant, however. And now it’s up for sale.

Delivered directly to one of the brothers from the factory floor, this car was only used in two races – its clutch giving out in the first and suffering a terrible crash in the other – before needing to be completely rebuilt by Ferrari. After that, the brothers tapped coach builder Paolo Fontana and sculptor Franco Reggiani to create more aerodynamic bodywork, resulting in the jet-without-wings you see before you today. For how old it is, this oddball Ferrari is in amazing condition and, as it is a real tangible part of classic racing history, it’s set to go to one very, very lucky (and rich) owner. It’s expected to sell for between $5-$7 million.

Purchase: $5,000,000+
