Ferrari Dino 246 GT
The use of the Dino moniker on the 206 GT represented the Italian automaker’s first venture into mid-engine technology for production cars, and the platform for the introduction of the production V-6 engine, a concept championed by Enzo Ferrari’s late son, Alfredo. The car was introduced in 1967 and production was limited with sales generally centred in Italy. In 1969, the Scaglietti-built Dino received a larger and more reliable 2,419 cc engine but the car’s striking design remained virtually unchanged.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in May of 2009 at Ferrari S.p.A., Fiorano Modenese, Modena.
195 bhp, 2,419 cc four overhead cam V-6 engine with triple Weber 40DCNF/7 carburettors, five-speed manual transaxle, four-wheel independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes. Wheelbase: 2,340 mm (92.1 in.)
