As the first series-produced, mid-engined Ferraris, the early Dino V6s are landmark cars and the line they founded would prove to be an immense commercial success for Maranello. The original 2.0-litre Dino 206 was replaced in 1969 by a longer-wheelbase 2.4-litre version: the 246GT. Previously alloy, the body was now steel and the cylinder block cast-iron rather than aluminium, but the bigger engine’s increased power - 195bhp at 7,600rpm - was adequate compensation for the weight gain. While not as fast in a straight line as its V12-engined stablemates, the nimble Dino was capable of showing almost anything a clean pair of heels over twisty going. Truly a driver’s car par excellence.
This right-hand drive example was purchased by the current owner in 1988 - in very good condition - and over the succeeding years has been lovingly cared for to bring it up to concours standard. A complete re-spray was undertaken in the latter part of 1988 by Autotech of Belbroughton and in order to achieve full concours condition the seats were re-trimmed by Suffolk & Turley. Over the years the car has been serviced and maintained by Mark Leighton of MDL Cars and the many invoices and receipts confirm that only genuine parts were used. Since purchase, the car has only been driven some 5,000 miles, which is supported by the accompanying complete MoT history. The majority of these miles have been covered attending and competing in various concours events, in which the car has won a number of accolades and awards, as recorded in the history file.
Finished in silver with black leather interior, ‘246 EBK’ displays a total of 50,443 miles on the odometer and is described by the private vendor as in ‘concours’ condition and ready to use. It is MoT’d (to April 2006) and taxed (10.05) and comes complete with original tools, manual, old-style logbook, Swansea V5 and all receipts relating to the period of current ownership.
