Ferrari Dino 246 GT 1972 for sale

The Ferrari Dino 246 GT was Enzo Ferrari’s tribute to his son Dino who died in 1956. The car was an attempt at a relatively low-cost sports car with a mid-engine V6. For many years the Dino 246 GT has been considered a “lesser” Ferrari. It isn’t until the last 5-10 years that this model has risen to its top status as blue chip Ferrari.

The styling is very distinctive compared to its V12 brothers and features a very balanced profile (no long nose). In typical red the Ferrari Dino 246 GT is nothing short of a true Ferrari. And its rear mid-engine layout became an inspiration for many later models of the prancing horse.

The current success of the Dino 246 GT makes this a very desirable Ferrari nowadays. And this pristine example is no exception.
