DinoPoint restoration

The Fiat Dino Spider was born out of a collaboration between Fiat and Ferrari due to the Maranello company's need to homologate the so-called "Dino" propulsion unit designed in the 1950s by the son of patron Enzo Ferrari, Alfredo known as Dino, who died prematurely, for the Formula 2 championship. This need clashed with Maranello's slow production and found an ideal partner in Fiat, which could easily prepare the production of a model that would use it and easily reach 500 units. The refined 1987 cm³ Ferrari V6 engine used for the Fiat Dino has two overhead camshafts for each bank, driven by two chains with adjustable tensioners, transversely inclined valves, aluminium head and crankcase, wet sump and delivers 160 hp at 7500 rpm.
Around the sophisticated Ferrari engine, Fiat's technical department designed a car with a conventional architecture: front engine, five-speed manual gearbox, rear-wheel drive with self-locking differential, independent-wheel front axle, rigid axle rear axle and disc brakes on all four wheels with power brakes. The bodywork was entrusted to Pininfarina, who designed the spider with extensive references to Ferrari models (it was derived from some sketches that the stylist had presented to the Maranello company) and who also oversaw the construction of the model in his factories, which was presented at the 1966 Turin Motor Show.

The rare example on auction here (no. 125) in typical Rosso Corsa 121 and black interior characterised by the presence of the Dinoplex electronic ignition, is believed to be part of the lot of the first series of 500 examples produced for the homologation of the propulsion unit in F.2 (a total of 1,163 units produced in 3 years). It is therefore the most coveted type of this model as, in addition to having a refined engine with aluminium head and crankcase, it is the one that allowed Andrea De Adamich to win the Temporada Argentina in 1968 with 3 successes out of 4 races.
Purchased by the current owner in 2019, the car has undergone a precise and philological total restoration (bodywork, engine, hood, seats, systems) of which there is ample photographic documentation between 2019 and 2020 by DinoPoint of Bergamo, one of the most experienced and specialised restorers of the model, and is therefore in excellent condition. Since restoration it has covered just over 2,500 km, new tyres with historic design, original Cromodora rims. It has a Certificate of Historic Significance issued by the Fiat Historic Register (identification plate also in the engine compartment).
