Description

FOR SALE; Beautiful UK car with only 30k miles // Ordered new by Frank Williams

EQUIPMENT
Electric windows, Mouse hair dash, Cromodora wheels, Tool roll, Jack, Spare wheel.

EXTERIOR
Nearly 40 years after its introduction, the Dino survives as quite simply one of the most beautiful designs ever created with perfect proportions of delicacy, elegance and style. The exquisite Rosso paintwork maintains a rich, deep texture that shows consistently well around the car.

Bright work has been periodically renewed to match the bodywork and with lights, rubbers and plastics in superb order there is very little to betray the cars age.

INTERIOR
With a traditional double Nero interior finish the cabin supports the unique Italian style that makes comfort almost secondary. The mouse hair dash sits in wonderful original order, with an exacting depth and graining pattern that fits tight and smooth around the elliptical instrument binnacle. The leather seats retain excellent integrity, as both colour and contour present beautifully with door cards in equally good shape.

The dogleg gear gaiter sits pride of place, surrounded by elegant bright work and the optional electric window switches.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The wonderful sounds of the diminutive 6-cylinder engine make you quickly forget it’s down on cylinders and power from its V12 stable mates. The gear lever has quite a long and deliberate movement, not terribly quick, but a real joy to use and the 2.4 litre engine pulls cleanly from tick-over right through the rev – range.

The gearing of the Momo wheel makes the steering so tactile, particularly up at the top end of the performance, while the suspension is absolutely in character with the rest of the car. With a full and thorough service history, the engine is in first class condition.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
As with all timeless automotive design the wheels are key to the style success. Cromodora wheels are symptomatic with Italian exotica and fit as a stunning contrast to the sweeping lines of the body.

Wrapped in period Michelin XWX radial rubber the handling is as it was intended with brakes pulling the car up strongly with no adverse pitch or pull.

HISTORY FILE
This Dino was ordered new through Maranello Concessionaires UK in 1972 to Frank Williams Racing as personal transport for the man himself.

The car has always enjoyed the greatest of care with Kent High Performance Cars, Superformance and latterly Maranello themselves for the last 4 years who have carried out a whole host of works to engine, drivetrain and the braking system.

A brimming invoice folder lists a whole host of works over the years with the all important original tool kit still present in the boot of the car.

Please visit our website for a full write up and additional photographs.

The car is supplied having had an extensive intake inspection. Warranty, Finance, Part Exchange and Worldwide shipping are all available on request.
