In order to honor the memory of his late son and continue his developmental work on a new V-6 engine, Enzo Ferrari directed Vittorio Jano to finish Dino's project. The Dino was not only Ferrari's first mid-engine production car, but also marked the debut of a new Ferrari-based Dino brand that was entirely devoid of Ferrari badging. With its powerful 2,418 cc engine, and a reported 146 mph top speed coupled with race-inspired handling, the Dino quickly impressed Ferrari fans.
This particular example, chassis no. 02950, is an early USA Version E model 246 GT, completed on November 23, 1971 and delivered soon after to official English Ferrari importer Maranello Concessionaires Limited in Egham, Surrey, England - equipped with power windows and Cromodora wheels, finished in a Marrone Metallizzato over Beige livery. In 1972 it was sold from England to the States to a doctor in Louisville, Kentucky. From 1975 to 2015, this GT was owned by just a few long-term caretakers, with all known history documented by Marcel Massini and Denny Schue's Dino Register. The mileage displayed 15,624 is believed to be original and tracks on the history report.
Today the Dino is nicely presented as a striking and very capable example, displaying beautiful Rosso paintwork with Tan and Black leather Daytona style chairs, complimented by consistent body gaps and straight panel fitment. The cabin is very tidy, featuring power amenities and supple upholstery. Driving this car leaves a lasting impression. Its numbers-matching engine starts easily without hesitation and performs well, a recent compression test showed strong compression on all cylinders.
Dino's have developed into highly sought-after investments with unmatched design and drivability like no other. Here is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a nicely documented U.S. specification GT, available for enjoyment and continued collectability right out of the box. Competitively priced, this Dino GT makes the ultimate driver!
