2,418 cc mid-mounted DOHC V-6 engine, triple Weber twin-choke carburetors, 195 HP at 7,800 RPM, five-speed manual gearbox in rear transaxle, four-wheel independent suspension with wishbones and coil springs, four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes; wheelbase: 92.1”


Consistently ranked among the most beautiful and engaging automobiles ever conceived, the ‘Dino’ sports car was an inspired product of Ferrari’s V-6 racing-engine development program of the 1950s and 1960s, led by Vittorio Jano and furthered by Carlo Chiti. Immediately successful, Ferrari’s V-6 program powered Ferrari to its first Grand Prix Manufacturer’s Championship and team driver Mike Hawthorn to the driver’s title in 1958 and helped American driver Phil Hill capture the 1961 Manufacturer’s and Driver’s championships for himself and Ferrari. Continued F2 use dictated 500-unit production beginning in 1967, met with the help of Italian industrial giant, FIAT, which produced a Ferrari-designed 2.0-litre, V-6 engine powering FIAT’s Pininfarina-built Dino Spyder debuting for 1966 and the Bertone-bodied Dino coupe from 1967.

Ferrari’s own line of V-6 road cars was rooted in Pininfarina’s racy “Dino 206 S Speciale” styling exercise first shown at Paris in 1965. The “Dino Berlinetta GT” appeared at Turin the next year, complete with a transverse mid-mounted V-6 and seductive Pininfarina-designed body built by Scaglietti. The first production Dino, designated 206GT (denoting 2.0 litres of engine displacement and six cylinders) debuted at Turin in 1967, heralding the first mid-engine production car by Ferrari and the launch product of the new Ferrari-based ‘Dino’ brand. Just 150 were produced. The definitive steel-bodied 246GT arrived for 1969, with the new model officially launched at the November Turin Salon that year, although production had already begun by then. Carrying numerous details refinements, the GTS carried 35 additional horsepower, courtesy of its enlarged 2,418 cc engine and sprinted from rest to 60 mph in the seven-second range en route to 140-plus mph flat out, swiftly earning the praise of Ferrari enthusiasts and the motoring press. Nearly 2,500 examples were built to 1974, plus 1,274 of the Targa-roof 246GTS, which debuted at Geneva in March 1972, distinguished by its black removable roof panel. While relatively small in number, the 206 and 246 Dino were highly influential, being the first mid-engine road cars offered by Ferrari and left a huge stylistic footprint as the inspiration of Ferrari’s later Pininfarina-designed V-8 road cars, including the 308 and 328, which clearly continue the Dino’s basic styling cues and layout through the 1980s.

A U.S. car from new, and documented with a current Marcel Massini Report, this 1972 Ferrari Dino 246GTS is numbered 04494 and stands as a prime example in every respect as a highly attractive and undamaged car with just an approximate 43,000 miles at the time of cataloguing and benefiting from single-collector care for the past 12 years. Finished in Medio Verde Metallizzato (Medium Green Metallic) over tan leather upholstery, 04494 is a rare example equipped with power window lifts and air-conditioning. Featuring an excellent, rust-free body with outstanding newer paint, this Dino 246GTS retains impressive original leather upholstery and “mouse hair” on the dash. A newer Alpine stereo head unit provides additional entertainment. Other desirable items include the original tool roll, roadside jack, spare wheel/tire combination, and a car cover. In summation, 04494 is an extremely well-maintained and attractive example that is ready to be driven, shown, and enjoyed in the best classic Ferrari tradition.
