195 Inter by Touring





The 195 Inter is a grand tourer produced by Ferrari in 1950. Introduced at the 1950 Paris Motor Show, it was similar to the 166 Inter shown a year earlier and was aimed at the same affluent clientele. Like the last of the 166 Inters, the wheelbase was stretched by 80 mm (3.1 in) to 2,500 mm (98.4 in), but the larger 2.3 L (2341 cc/142 in³) version of the Colombo V12 was the true differentiator. Introduced in 1950, the 195 was the newest Ferrari in the continual evolution of the marque at the time, utilizing a chassis that was typically Ferrari, with two oval longerons being cross-braced by more oval tubing. The front suspension was by unequal length wishbones with an anti-roll bar and transverse springs. At the rear, semi-elliptic springs supported a solid rear axle, which was well located by upper and lower pairs of radius arms. Braking was achieved by huge 12-inch, hydraulically operated aluminum drums with steel liners. Borrani wire wheels were standard. Most Inters weighed only about 2,200 lbs. Coachwork was custom, and 27 were built in less than a year. The more-potent (but otherwise similar) Ferrari 212 Inter was introduced at the 1951 Paris show and outlived the 195.

The engine increase was accomplished by pushing the bore from 60 to 65 mm, though the 58.8 mm stroke was retained. A single Weber 36DCF carburetor was normally fitted, for a total output of 130hp (96 kW) though some used triple carbs.
