RM Auctions has announced their plans to offer a 1949 Ferrari 166MM Touring Barchetta at their Biltmore event in Arizona this January 21st. The car was originally commissioned for the 1949 Paris Motor Show and this roadster is one of 25 models to feature Barchetta coachwork by Carrozzeria Touring of Milan, Italy.

It's powered by a 2.0-liter V12 engine with an estimated 140 hp and is mated to a five-speed manual transmission. It can supposedly hit 100 mph in approximately 27 seconds. Still interested?
