The Ferrari Dino might be known as a fauxrarri to purists but that likely won't hamper the enthusiasm for Keith Richards' 1972 Ferrari Dino 246GT which is slated to be auctioned off on May 9th.

The Ferrari Dino might be known as a fauxrarri to purists but that likely won't hamper the enthusiasm for Keith Richards' 1972 Ferrari Dino 246GT which is slated to be auctioned off on May 9th.

Set to go under the hammer at the Coys’ auction in Monaco, the Dino was purchased by Richards in February of 1972 and owned by the rock legend until 1986. Somewhat surprisingly, Richards racked up over 25,000 miles (40,233 km) over the course of those fourteen years.

According to Coys Managing Partner Chris Routledge, "A Dino offered at no reserve is rare enough in itself and would make this is a highly desirable and collectible item in its own right, but when one adds to this proven long-term ownership by rock and roll aristocracy, the Keith Richards's car has to be the ultimate Dino and will surely give any car collector and rock enthusiast a great 'Satisfaction'!”

If the Dino isn't your kind of thing, perhaps a 1950 Cisitalia Abarth 204 A Spyder driven by Tazio Nuvolari might suit your tastes. Estimated to be worth between €1.4-1.8 ($1.9-2.4) million, the car was driven by Nuvolari at the 1950 Targa Florio and the 1950 Palermo Monte Pellegrino hillclimb where in came in first in the 1100cc class. More importantly, Coys says "this was the final race of Nuvolari's overwhelmingly diverse and successful career."
