Left-hand drive 246 GT that has covered a mere 4,300km.

  • This stunning, left-hand drive 246 GT has covered a mere 4,300km

  • Finished in the classic Ferrari colour combination of Rosso and Crema

  • The 190bhp, 4-cam, V-6 is mounted transversely above the five-speed gearbox and just ahead of the rear axle

  • The voluptuous Pininfarina-designed/Scaglietti-built bodywork is beautifully timeless

  • Very competitively guided for such remarkable quality 

The Ferrari Dino was built to honour Alfredo 'Dino' Ferrari who died of muscular dystrophy in 1956. He was the only legitimate son of Il Commendatore, and unlike any previous road-going Ferrari, the Dino utilised a V6 engine (Tipo 156) which Alfredo himself had developed and advocated during his lifetime. Enzo Ferrari vehemently answered his critics when he said: "For reasons of mechanical efficiency he finally came to the conclusion that the engine should be a V6 and we accept his decision." The acceptance of this decision resulted in a legacy of Motorsport orientated derivatives from Formula 1 through to various famous sports car racing applications.

Following the continued success on the track and in order to homologate Ferrari's 1966 Formula 2 campaign, a new line of mid-engined production V6 Coupes with Fiat running gear went on sale in 1967 in 2-litre form, however, in 1969 a larger 2.4 litre Dino was introduced, named the 246 GT. The voluptuous bodywork, which many people still regard as the prettiest ever to grace a road-going Ferrari, was designed by Pininfarina and built by Scaglietti and covered a tubular chassis which carried wishbone independent suspension at each corner. The compact, four-cam engine which delivered 190bhp, was mounted transversely above the five-speed gearbox and just ahead of the rear axle, allowing for both a comfortable cockpit and some usable boot space.

This stunning, left-hand drive 246 GT is showing only 4,300km on the odometer and is finished in the classic Ferrari colour combination of Rosso and Crema. A 246 GT Dino showing this mileage and level of quality is virtually impossible to repeat and, combined with this competitive estimate, this certainly looks like a very exciting proposition indeed.
