The Dino, named in honour of Enzo Ferrari's son, was a brand for V6 engined Ferrari's and the project that Alfredo 'Dino' Ferrari worked on before he died tragically of muscular dystrophy at just 24 years old. In order to homologate Ferrari's Formula Two entry in 1966, the FIA requested that 500 production cars were produced using the same V6 unit as the race car. The Fiat Dino was born using the two-litre V6 Ferrari unit which was later used in the early 206GT versions of the Dino. Ferrari used the mid-engined configuration that was working well for them in sports car racing for the new Dino and the prototype 206S was shown at the 1966 Turin show. The car drew a positive response and Ferrari put the car into production, making it the first mid-engined production Ferrari. A 2.4-litre version on a longer wheelbase, the 246GT, replaced the Dino 206 in late 1969. The beauty of a mid-engined sports car is the handling, an improved centre of gravity lends itself to better road holding, a Ferrari Dino has great cornering ability and is an enormously fun car to drive. This matching numbers Dino 246GT was originally registered on 17 th January 1972 to the Al-Said family. The car changed ha
Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 This beautiful Ferrari 246 Dino is one of only 272 UK-delivered cars completed in right hand drive and one of only 116 produced in the striking blue Azzurro Metallizzato colour. Constructed on 24 th January 1973, the Ferrari had been registered as PGX5L and delivered to its first owner, a Denise McCann of Sydney Street, London by 6 th March. It remained in London for less than a year before moving to Banbury in 1974 when it was acquired by a Mr Graham Morris who kept it for almost 4 years before selling it to a Mr Richard Colton in March 1978. The next move, in 1981, was to prove a significant one when it was acquired by Mr Martin Abbott who was to keep it for the next 23 years. During Mr Abbott’s ownership the car was carefully maintained and the meticulous mileage records, numerous invoices and other correspondence attest to the care that the car received during this time. With Mr Abbott’s advancing years the Ferrari moved, in 2004, to its most recent owner who commissioned a full body-off bare-metal professional restoration, during which time the car was returned to its highly attractive and original Azzurro Metallizzato colour scheme
‘Dino’ is a venerable name in the minds of true Ferrari connoisseurs - and rightly so. The company’s half-century history of mid-engined sports cars can be traced back to the development of one particular road-going model - and one engine, in fact - the V6 Dino. Following two separate design concepts - the first at the 1965 Paris motor show and the second at Turin in 1966 - the marque was launched with the glorious Dino 206 GT. The first Dino had a lightweight aluminum body and an alloy block 2.0-litre V6 engine, mounted transversely behind the driver. At the end of the short production run, just 152 examples of the 206 GT had been built, which makes it not just the rarest Dino, but the rarest mid-engined production Ferrari of all time. Ferrari launched the Dino 246 GT in 1969, replacing the expensive aluminium used in its predecessor with a cast iron block 2.4-litre V6 and steel body panels. Understandably, the Dino 206 GT remains the model of choice for the most discerning collectors, as the original vision of the lightweight, mid-engined Ferrari. This particular Dino 206 GT, chassis s/n 00238, was supplied new to Italy by Motor Srl Bologna in November 1968. Its original factory
Every single mid-engined V8 Ferrari up to the new 488 GTB can be traced back to the 308 GT4. Bertone’s bold, angular car was the successor to Pininfarina’s svelte Ferrari Dino 246 GT, and with a transverse-mounted engine, the design allowed for a 2+2 seating layout. Ferrari’s Dino 308 GT4 is a wonderful car to drive, with a powerful and flexible 3.0-litre V8 and fully independent suspension, which allows for fast, relaxed and comfortable progress. The Ferrari was a smash hit with the motoring press at the time, with Motorsport magazine’s 1974 road test concluding: ‘This must be the car for which nearly every Dino 246GT owner has been waiting’. In Autosport magazine, John Bolster added, ‘It is delightful to drive and worthy of bearing that most famous name’. This particular Ferrari 308 GT4 is an outstanding example, finished in the rare combination of Verde Pino Metallizzato with the optional full leather interior in cream hide. The Ferrari was also ordered new with air-conditioning and a heated rear windscreen. The first owner of this 308 GT4 was the managing director of a London clothing company. He was adamant that he did not want a red Ferrari, so chose this superb green hue fro

Manufactured in 1973 it was ordered by Maranello Concessionaires and shipped to its first owner, a Mr J Le Coutre of London in July where it stayed for the next few years until it was acquired by a Mr R Slack of Atlanta Georgia and exported to the United States. The car saw little use stateside and remained in storage from 1985 until 1999. At some point in this period the car was re-painted red but otherwise remained in very original condition as one would expect of a car with limited mileage and few owners. In 2000 the Dino was acquired from the deceased estate of a Mr Ted Carson, who was also from Atlanta, and by August had been shipped to Australia where it was completely dismantled and the entire vehicle bead blasted in preparation for a full body-off restoration, which was undertaken by an award winning specialist in New South Wales. Since the completion of the work the car was displayed at a number of events and won its class at the 2009 NSW Ferrari Owner’s Club concours. The car remained in Australia until 201

This 1969 Ferrari 246GT L Type Chassis number 00508 was the 50th of only 354 "L" model Dino GT's completed from March of 1969 though September of 1970. The "L" model utilized the same unique early prototype-like interior of the 206GT with fixed seat head-rests mounted to the back bulkhead and a full length glove box door and a passenger foot-well bar. The main changes from the all alloy bodied 206GT to the 246GT "L" model was the lengthening of the wheel-base as well as the adoption of a 2.4 rather than the 2.0-liter engine. This particular example wears an older restoration and has 80,623 documented original kilometers. The engine, transaxle, and body are all original to the vehicle. The engine also has excellent compression on all cylinders. There is no smoke or ill-noises coming from the engine and the vehicle is both rust and accident free. Detailed ownership and service records as well as the original Italian "Libretto" or road-registration documents are still with the vehicle as are the original owners's manual and various other "glove compartment" items that are most always missing. History available upon request. For only $467,500.

At the 1965 Paris Salon, Pininfarina exhibited a mid-engined prototype Berlinetta speciale known as the "Dino 206 S". After three more prototypes presented, production finally started in 1968 and ran until spring 1969 with 153 examples produced. Later in 1969, Ferrari started to produce the Dino 246 GT (and then the 246 GTS), until 1974, with more than 3912 cars made. Â Our car, a Ferrari Dino 206GT, chassis 00186, is the 44th of the 153 cars made by the factory. The car was first registered in Milano - Italy, on 28 October 1968. The car always stayed in Italy, with different owners, incluing 32 years (from 1982 - 2014) with the same gentleman, Mr. Salvatore dâAngelo. He sold the car in 2014 to an Italian car enthusiast. At some point during his ownership, he removed the original engine from the car, replacing it with an identical Fiat-Dino 2.0l engine. Â Today, the car is running very well, the âRosso Dinoâ paint is absolutely wonderful and the original engine is included with the car. Â The Dino 206GT is for sale with its Italian papers, FIA papers, passaporto tecnico and Massini report. Â Â

1972 FERRARI DINO 246 GT RHD As Ferrari’s first production car to boast a V-6 engine and rear-mid engine placement, it can be argued that the Dino was the most important Ferrari ever produced to never sport a Ferrari badge (save for the prancing horse on its data tag). Nevertheless, there’s no doubt that this little Ferrari was near and dear to Enzo’s heart, as it was in part a tribute to his late son, Alfredo, or “Dino,” as he was known to his family. Educated as an engineer and with a passion for racing, Dino suggested to his father that Ferrari should consider utilizing V-6 engines in their racing cars. Sadly, Dino never lived to see his idea come to fruition, but there is no doubt that he would have been proud of the 246 Dino. The car offered here is an exceptional example, having seen considerable expenditure over a prolonged period, with much supporting documentation in the accompanying file. Beautifully presented in quintessential Ferrari red over a tan interior. Inspection, at the earliest possible opportunity, is highly recommended. Rarely do cars of this obvious quality come to the market and this one will surely be snapped up by the first knowledgeable enquirer.
1972 FERRARI DINO 246GT LEFT HAND DRIVE Many consider the Dino to be one of Ferrari’s greatest cars, not only for its looks but also for the wonderful driving experience it provides. The Dino helped Ferrari realize that rear-mid-engined cars were here to stay, and it spawned a wonderful series of cars that continues through today as Ferrari’s most popular line of sports cars. Beautifully restored, this Dino GT truly needs nothing and is ready to be enjoyed as Dino intended. Briefly, the technical specification is as follows; 195 hp, 2,418 cc DOHC V-6 engine with three Weber 40 DCN F/7 carburetors, five-speed manual transaxle, front and rear unequal-length A-arm suspension with coil springs and anti-roll bars, and four-wheel disc brakes. Wheelbase: 92.1 in. Our car, which is an E-series 246 GT Dino, was originally delivered to the United States. A recent recipient of a full restoration, the car presents beautifully in quintessential Ferrari red over a beige interior with Daytona-style seats and black contrasting inserts. The odometer currently shows 76,950 miles, which are believed to be original. Offered with a set of manuals, jack, and tool kit and accompanied by an extensive file that appears to chronicle a large portion of its life, containing service and restoration receipts, along with numerous photographs. Many consider the Dino to be one of Ferrari’s greatest cars, not only for its looks but also for the wonderful driving experience it provides. The Dino helped Ferrari realize that rear-mid-engined cars were here to stay, and it spawned a wonderful series of cars that continues through today as Ferrari’s most popular line of sports cars.
