In the early 1960s, Enzo Ferrari was keen to start producing models in greater numbers, but wasn't ready to use the mid-engine layout. It was Sergio Pininfarina who initiated the first such project, in the Dino 206 Berlinetta Speciale presented at the Paris Motor Show in 1965. In 1966 it was Pininfarina again who proposed the Dino Berlinetta GT, boasting a new tubular chassis and centrally positioned V6 engine, with a superbly elegant and sporty design that reappeared the following year on the Dino 206 GT. This first mid-engined road-going Ferrari opened the way for a new branch of the family with a lasting success still evident today in the V8-engined F430.
This pretty Dino 246 GTS was delivered new to the USA in 1973. As was often the case with models destined for the American market, it was equipped with air conditioning as an option. In sound original condition, it was brought to Italy to join the collection of Norberto Ferretti, creator of the eponymous yacht company, and passionate about art and exceptional automobiles. It was then fully restored, retaining the lovely and original 'Giallo Fly' colour, with black interior. Since this work was carried out, the car has only covered a little over 3000 km, and the odometer reads 5859 km. It has its original engine and at the end of the restoration it was certified by Ferrari and will be sold with its Classiche Ferrari "Certificato di autenticità". The car still has the air conditioning system, which has been serviced, and electric windows. Offered with its ACI-CSAI papers, this Dino is the perfect car to take part, in style and with your hair blowing in the wind, in historic rallies.
