a display of 60 significant Ferraris on Rodeo Drive, including the 166 MM Touring Barchetta, s/n 0008 M, which was 1st overall at the 1949 Mille Miglia and it followed that up on June 1949 with a glorious 1st overall at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, driven by Luigi Chinetti and Lord Selsdon. However, this was the race where Chinetti drove for a heroic 23 hours while taking the win. The car’s number that day was 22 and that’s the livery it wears today. In 1997 it was bought by Robert M. Lee to add to his already huge collection, and it remains with him today.
This gathering of great Ferraris was organized by collector Bruce Meyer, with the help of Ferrari expert and historian David Seibert, Greg Adams, Director, Brand Experience Marketing at Ferrari North America.
