Ferrari Tipo 166 LeMans Berlinetta with chassis number 020I is believed to be chassis number 02C. O2C was one of the first vehicles constructed to bear the name 'Ferrari.' It was intended for competition and was powered by a V-12 engine, constructed by Colombo, that packed more potential than it did power. It initially produced just under 60 horsepower, but with a little fine tuning was further increased to over 90. The body of 02C was narrow and minimalistic with cycle fenders. The car was agile, lightweight, and suited for racing that involved many corners.

O2C was driven by Cortese Franco and later Tazio Nuvolari. Its first Grand Prix victory came at Rome where Cortese outpaced the rest of the competition and secured a victory for the prancing horse. Another victory was scored just a short time later at Vercelli by Cortese. At the Terme di Caracalla circuit, the car was damaged and was forced out of the race. The car was repaired and continued to score Class and Overall Victories.

Nuvolari sat behind the wheel of 02C in mid-1947 at the Forlio Circuit where he emerged with a Class Victory. At the Coppa Luigi Arcangeli in Parma, Nuvolari won outright and was followed closely by Cortese.

Another accident occurred for 02C during testing; new bodywork was later fitted. Around that time, the engine was replaced with the Tipo 166 unit and continued to compete during the 1948 season.

At some point in history, 02C became 020I. When examining the chassis plate, it becomes evident that the 'C' was turned into an 'O'. An 'I' was added to the end. It is believed that the car was later sold as a new product. It was sent to Touring where a Carlo Bianchi Anderloni designed Berlinetta body was fitted for the car.

After the car was sold, its new owner entered the car in competition. It was entered in the 1950 and 1951 Mille Miglias; this was the vehicles third visit to the race with its other start occurring in 1948. During the 1950 and 1951 race, the car retired prematurely and failed to finish.

Chassis 020I is still mostly in original guise. It carries the Touring body it was given back in the late 1940s. It is one of the earliest examples of the Ferrari marque.
