Description

In 1969, Ferrari updated the groundbreaking mid-engine Dino 206 GT with a larger engine and a number of subtle coachwork revisions, resulting in the 246 GT. Almost 2,500 examples were built over the next five years in three discrete series, the last of which – the Tipo E – went into production in mid-1971. The 246 GT featured seat-mounted headrests, relocated rear deck lid releases and door locks, short glove box doors, and shallow passenger footwells.

The Tipo E example offered here, chassis 03392, was equipped and completed by the factory in February 1972 as an original US-specification example. Presented today in the classic color combination of Rosso Corsa over beige leather, this Dino GT is in excellent condition and is accompanied by its handbooks and tool roll. Quite simply, this is a stunning example of one of Ferrari’s most enduring sports car designs.
