This classic and nowadays much sought-after Ferrari was named after Enzo Ferrari's son Alfredino, who died in 1956, aged 24. Enzo Ferrari credits his son with the inspiration for a series of successful small and medium capacity V6 racing engines built by Ferrari from 1956, and in turn the name was given to a new line of mid-engine production Ferrari V6 coupÚs which first went on sale in 1969 in two-litre form. The definitive 246 Dino, with its 2.4 litre V6, appeared in late 1969 and fewer than 4,000 were built, of which 1,200 were the desirable GTS version. The delightful bodywork was designed by Pininfarina, and was built in steel by Scaglietti. It covered a straightforward chassis of tubular steel which carried wishbone independent suspension at each corner. The compact engine, with four chain-driven overhead camshafts, was mounted transversely above the five-speed gearbox and just ahead of the rear axle line, allowing both a comfortable cockpit and usable boot space. With its flexible engine, uncomplicated chassis and outstanding handling, the 246 Dino is a car to combine the best of both worlds.

This rare, unusual and extremely eligible car was in prepared in period by Garage Francorchamp for a former owner who competed extensively in the car in a number of hill climbs, sprints, races and other competition events to include Ferrari Club events through the 1970's and 1980's. The car has subsequently featured in two renowned collections of historic race cars, in England and subsequently Spain from where the car has been brought to be offered for sale.

The car features homologated Colotti close ratio straight cut gearbox.
