Footnotes

  • In the mid-1960s, faced with the difficulty of producing its new Dino engine in sufficient volume for Formula 2 homologation, Ferrari turned to FIAT for assistance, the resulting agreement for the latter to build the Dino's four-cam V6 leading to a spin-off model for FIAT. Launched in Pininfarina-bodied two-seater Spyder form at the 1966 Turin Show, the FIAT Dino carried its 2.0-litre, 160bhp engine ahead of the driver in conventional manner. A longer-wheelbase Coupé model with Bertone coachwork appeared the following year, the increase in length enabling the incorporation of two decent-sized rear seats. In 1969 the V6 engine's capacity was increased to 2,418cc for the '2400' model and a superior ZF gearbox and FIAT 130-type trailing-arm independent rear suspension adopted. Power went up to 180bhp (DIN) at 6,600rpm and the '2400' was judged greatly superior to the preceding model. Built at Ferrari's Maranello factory - unlike the original, which had been made by FIAT in Turin – the '2400' enjoyed considerably better build quality too. A stylish conveyance for four, the FIAT Dino coupé raced to 60mph in around 8 seconds and could reach 130mph while making all the right Ferrari-esque noises. Production ceased in 1972.

    This gorgeous, matching numbers FIAT Dino 2400 coupé is one of approximately 2,400 built, relatively few of which are on the road today. Delivered new to Milan in early 1971, it remained there for around 30 years. The Italian libretto, ASI registration and historic certificate are on file. Around ten years ago the body was repainted in its original factory colour, Nocciola Metallic 735, while the interior remains original, featuring beige cloth seats and green mats.

    Rarely used over the last 15 years, and with only 78,000 documented kilometres recorded, the car was brought from Italy to the UK in August 2014 and immediately underwent a comprehensive service costing £3,000 (receipts on file). It is also MoT'd, taxed and UK registered, and comes with a V5C document. We are advised that the Ferrari V6 engine runs smoothly, with no smoke or leaks, and that the body is wonderfully straight with excellent floors and first-class door shut lines. The interior is described as good, with perfect dashboard, panels, ceiling, mats and rear seats. Only the worn driver's seat is said to require some 'TLC' to bring it in line with the rest of the car. Always cared for, the Dino comes complete with its original boxed tool kit, spare tyre and battery isolator switch for winter storage.
