The Ferrari Dino 246 GT was a rolling homage to Enzo Ferrari’s son, Alfredo “Dino” Ferrari, as it offered a uniquely exhilarating mid-engined driving experience that was wrapped up in one of Pininfarina’s most balanced designs.
Dino Ferrari, a trained engineer, had proposed a downsized engine range in the 1950s, but his untimely passing in 1956 meant that he never got to see his dream come to fruition. Eventually, his father Enzo approved the Dino sub-brand to serve as a gateway brand and to square off against cars like the Porsche 911. With its mid-mounted V-6 allowing for ideal weight distribution and a more streamlined nose, the Dino was a true sports car that was genuinely worthy of the Ferrari name.
To top it all off, its aggressive, Modena-bred exhaust note gave most owners, and the contemporary press, little to complain about. For 1969, the Dino’s 2.0-litre engine was enlarged to 2,418 cubic centimetres, giving the 206 its new 246 nomenclature. The Fiat-built, 65-degree powerplant featured an iron block with alloy heads and was enough to catapult the Leonardo Fioravanti-designed 246 GT into great sales success. Their responsive handling and free-revving engines characterized Ferrari well into the 1990s, giving the Dino a long-lasting appeal.
The example shown here is finished in gorgeous Nuovo Giallo Fly Yellow with two-tone black and tan Daytona leather seats. Previously owned by the editor of Autoweek Magazine, this magnificent motorcar was recently released from long-term ownership. The 1971 Ferrari Dino 246 GT offered here comes fully documented with its manuals, tools, complete service records from new, as well as factory correspondence letters. It is equipped with an AM/FM cassette player, power windows and 14” Cromodora wheels. This Dino recently underwent a complete service and would be the perfect addition to add to any premier collection. We are proud to offer it to the most particular collector, investor or enthusiast who demands the best.
