The final and most potent variation of the Type 166 chassis, the Ferrari 340, 342 and 375 are offered hugely improved performance for road and race
The 340 was the final flowering of the 166 chassis. As for the V12, a long-block version had been designed by Aurelio Lampredi, and also used in Ferrari's Formula 1 cars. The combination was exciting, and a fitting finale for the 166, expecially as the ultimate Mexico developed 280bhp, almost three times the original car's power. 340 and 342 shared the 4.1-litre engine; the 375 had no less than 4.5-litres, and was available in road and competition car form. Values can easily be double those of the 166, although they vary hugely due to provenance.Prices range from £8,000,000-£5,000,000 for the 375 Spider.
