Artcurial will offer this delicious Dino prototype at Rétromobile 2017

If you’ve visited the Le Mans museum before, you’ll have probably been captivated by this Dino 206P Berlinette Speciale, a unique prototype that spawned some of the best-loved models in Ferrari’s back-catalogue. Next February, Artcurial will offer it for sale…

Built at the request of Enzo Ferrari himself, and designed by Leonardo Fioravanti of Pininfarina, this Dino prototype was built on the tubular chassis of a competition 206P and truly heralded a new era of aesthetic for Ferrari. Its sultry and curvaceous bodywork is diminuative, even by 1960s standards, and displays a number of features that would go on to define not only the 206 and 246 GT models, but also the later 308, 328 and 288 GTO. Gifted by Sergio Pininfarina (with the blessing of Il Commendatore) to the Musée de l’Automobile at Le Mans in 1967, it’s called La Sarthe its home ever since. Now, Artcurial has revealed that it will offer the car at its 2017 Rétromobile sale in Paris on behalf of the museum, in order to promote and add to its mouthwatering collection. The museum’s visitors’ loss is one very lucky collector’s gain...
