Dino was a marque for mid-engined, rear-drive sports cars produced by Ferrari from 1968 to 1976. The “Dino” marque was created to market a lower priced, “affordable” sports car capable of taking on the Porsche 911. Ferrari’s expensive V12s well exceeded the 911 in both performance and price. Enzo did not want to diminish his exclusive brand with a cheaper car, so the “Dino” was created. Named to honour Ferrari founder Enzo Ferrari’s son and heir Dino Ferrari, the Dino models used Ferrari racing naming designation of displacement and cylinder count with two digits for the size of the engine in deciliters and the third digit to represent the number of cylinders, i.e. 246 being a 2.4-liter 6-cylinder and 308 being a 3.0-liter 8-cylinder.

Ferrari Dino 246 GT Ferrari Dino 246 GT ferrari DinoFerrari street models of the time used a three-digit representation of the displacement in cubic centimetres of one of the 12 cylinders, which would have been meaningless in a brand with differing numbers of cylinders. In 1969 the 206 GT was superseded by the more powerful Dino 246 GT. The 246 GT was powered by an enlarged 2.4l V6 engine, producing 192 hp at 7,600 rpm in European specification. Initially available as a fixed-top GT coupé, a targa topped GTS was also offered after 1971. Other notable changes from the 206 were the body, now made of steel instead of aluminum, and a 60 mm longer wheelbase than the 206.

Three series of the Dino 246 GT were built with differences in wheels, windshield wiper coverage and engine ventilation. The vast majority of production, 1,431 coupe’s and 1,264 GTS’s were Series 3, otherwise known as the “L Series”.

EXTERIOR

Nearly 40 years after its introduction, the Dino survives as quite simply one of the most beautiful designs ever created with perfect proportions of delicacy, elegance, and style. The exquisite Rosso paintwork maintains a rich, deep texture that shows consistently well around the car.Ferrari Dino 246 GT Ferrari Dino 246 GT ferrari Dino

Brightwork has been periodically renewed to match the bodywork and with lights, rubbers, and plastics in superb order, there is very little to betray the car‘s age.

 

INTERIOR

With a traditional double Nero interior finish, the cabin supports the unique Italian style that makes comfort almost secondary. The mouse hair dash sits in the Ferrari Dino 246 GT Ferrari Dino 246 GT ferrari Dinowonderful original order, with an exacting depth and graining pattern that fits tight and smooth around the elliptical instrument binnacle. The leather seats retain excellent integrity, as both colour and contour present beautifully with door cards in equally good shape.

The dogleg gear gaiter sits pride of place, surrounded by elegant brightwork and the optional electric window switches

 

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION

The wonderful sounds of the diminutive 6-cylinder engine make you quickly forget it’s down on cylinders and power from its V12 stablemates. The gear lever has quite a long and deliberate movement, not terribly quick, but a real joy to use and the 2.4 litre engine pulls cleanly from tick-over right through the rev – range.Ferrari Dino 246 GT Ferrari Dino 246 GT ferrari Dino

The gearing of the Momo wheel makes the steering so tactile, particularly up at the top end of the performance, while the suspension is absolutely in character with the rest of the car. With full and thorough service history, the engine is in first class condition.
