Ferrari’s 46-year history of mid-engined sports cars can be traced back to one model - the Dino. Named after Enzo’s son, Alfredo - or ‘Alfredino’ - the Dino marque was to apply to all Ferrari-built cars that did not use a V12 engine.
The marque was launched with the Dino 206 GT, which used a lightweight aluminum body and an aluminium block 2.0-litre Fiat V6 mounted transversely behind the driver.
In 1969, the Dino 246 GT arrived, replacing the expensive aluminium used in its predecessor with a cast iron block 2.4-litre V6 and steel body panels. The 246 GTS appeared at the 1972 Geneva motor show, with a black targa roof panel that could be easily removed and stowed behind the driver.
In total, just 228 right-hand-drive Dino 246 GTS models were imported to the UK between 1972 and 1974, with the example here being among the earlier cars to arrive.
