Just a small number of 195 Ss were produced, with Touring bodying both the open and coupé versions, the cars had a 2250 mm (89 in) wheelbase but sported an enlarged 2.3 L (2341 cc/142 in³) version of the Colombo V12 that was acheived by increasing the bore to 65 mm, the engine produced an increased 170 hp over the 166 S' 110 hp.
The two initial cars were forced to retire driven by Dorino Serafini and Vittorio Marzotto, but three were entered for the Mille Miglia of that year with the event won by the 195 S Touring coupe of Giannino Marzotto.
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.
The 195’s production was split between Vignale and Ghia. And while the Vignale was more luxury-focused, Ghia was more into sports. Seven of the models produced by Ghia were offered in normal Coupe configuration, while the other three were 2+2 Coupe models.
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.
The engine displacement increase was accomplished by pushing the bore from 60 to 65 mm, though the 58.8 mm stroke was retained. The standard induction on the 195 Inter engine was a single Weber 36DCF carburettor, but some examples received a triple twin choke carburettor set-up. The engine produced a total output of 130 hp (96 kW) allowing the 195 Inter to go from 0-60 in under 10 seconds and reach a top speed of 120 mph.
The 195 went on to diversify into a series of individual examples due to the coachwork being custom and built on request for example some had dual-tone paintwork, 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.
