The 195 Inter was a GT car 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 80mm to 2500mm, but the larger 2.3 L (2341 cc/142 in³) version of the Colombo V12 was the true differentiators. 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 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 130 hp (96 kW) though some used triple carbs.
