A fabulous, low-mileage example of one of Ferrari’s most instantly recognisable models: the Ferrari 246 GT Dino. Presented in Rosso Chiaro with a black & red interior, the car displays just 33,000 miles and is in beautiful condition both inside and out. A nice example of an iconic classic Ferrari, the car comes with a detailed file documenting its history, has been thoroughly inspected and fully serviced.
Registered ‘new’ in the UK in July 1973, our car is one of the 488 right-hand drive, UK supplied, Ferrari 246 GT Dino’s. This is an E-series car, and is finished to UK specification with Cromodora alloy wheels, ‘clap-hands’ wipers, electric windows and headlight covers. Finished in Rosso Chiaro with black vinyl & red toweling centres, with mousehair dash, and rosso carpets.
The car shows seven previous owners, all of whom who have lavished much care and attention on the car. documenting seemingly everything that’s been done to it and creating a large file of documents and invoices that chart and support its history. The low mileage displayed, is in part, thanks to the last owner adding just 300 miles over the last nine years. Bell Classics have given the car a thorough inspection, replaced the original rubber suspension bushes with our own polyurethane bush kit to improve ride quality and tautness, replaced the door seals and hoses as a precautionary measure, and given the car a full service.
Named to honour Alfredo ‘Dino’ Ferrari, Enzo Ferrari’s son and heir, the Dino marque was launched in 1968 as an ‘affordable’ alternative to the Porsche 911. Powered by a 2.4-litre double-overhead-camshaft V6 engine producing 195 bhp, the Dino was a daring move for the period: its mid-engine layout being associated more with sports racing cars than production cars and its curvaceous bodywork mirroring some of the fabulous ‘P series’ race cars Ferrari produced during the early-to-mid 1960s.
The Ferrari 246 GT Dino is undoubtedly one of Ferrari’s most iconic cars, its distinctive looks and place in Ferrari’s history causing a keen demand that has seen values appreciate in recent yaers. This is an outstanding example, made all the more desirable by its current condition, low mileage and documented history.
