The 2.4-litre Fiat Dino Spider differed in several respects from the 2-litre model. First, the 2400 was built at Ferrari, on assembly lines next to the Daytona, whereas the 2000 had been built by Fiat in Turin. Technically, the 2400 now had a cast iron engine block, independent rear suspension and uprated brakes. Only 420 units were built and it is true to say that its performance lived up to its looks, the beauty of its design echoed in the beguiling sound of its V6.
First registered on 7 July 1971, this model was purchased by its previous owner in Italy in 2013. A full restoration had just been carried out, with the exception of the engine. This was therefore entrusted to JL Préhaubert, a Ferrari engine specialist, for a complete rebuild. Since then, the car has covered nearly 20,000 km. The bodywork is sound and finished in a classic red, while the interior has been refurbished in black leather. The hood is in good condition. The Dinoplex ignition has been kept, but has been replaced by an MDS PN6425 system. The sound of the V6 has been amplified with the fitment of three small air filters, but the original filter will also be supplied. An aluminium fuel tank was fitted at the same time as a circuit-breaker and ignition cut-out anti-theft device. This attractive Spider comes with a French owner's manual, two sets of keys and numerous technical documents. It is ready to take to the road and delight its new owner as it zings up the rev range.
