Known History

Presented at the 1969 Geneva Motor Show, the Dino 246 GT succeeded the Dino 206 GT from 1968, with 3761 cars built from 1969-1974. It was designed somewhat in the spirit of the Alpine-Renault berlinette, but even more that of Porsche's 911 2.4. While Alpine initially used a mass-produced four-cylinder engine, the 246 GT's V6 was unmatched and much more sophisticated. With a capacity of 2418 cc, its performance was remarkable for an output of "only" 195 bhp. The captivating metallic sound of the engine contributed to the model's success, as it was in reality a "detuned" racing engine.

The famous red certification binder from Ferrari's Classiche department, dated 2014, indicates that the Dino was delivered new in June 1972 to the dealer Motor S.p.a. In Bologna, Italy. It was finished in Marrone Metallizzato, with a beige interior. Today, it has kept the original colour for its leather but has been repainted in Ferrari's mesmerising shade of red. It was entrusted to the Ferrari Zenith dealership in Lausanne, managed by Michel Zuchuat, for a complete restoration. Altogether, more than Ç140,000 was spent on the body, mechanical and electrical work. The final bill was settled in January 2020: it is therefore fresh from the workshop and in exceptional condition. The Dino is one of the marque's legendary models, a classic with timeless styling.
