Footnotes

  • "It is a thrill to drive a car like the Dino, one whose capabilities are far beyond what even an expert driver can use in most real-world motoring... The real joy of a good mid-engined car is in its handling and braking and the Dino shone as we expected it to. The steering is quick without being super quick, and it transmits by what seems a carefully planned amount of feedback exactly what is going on at the tyres. Thanks to the layout's low polar moment of inertia the car responds instantly to it. The Dino's cornering limits are very high..." – Road & Track.

    One of the final E-Series cars, the Dino offered here was delivered new to the UK and sold via Maranello Concessionaires Ltd, who carried out the first service on 10th September 1973. Subsequently, in 1994, the Dino was reregistered on the then owner's private plate, '5555 MH'.

    Dated 2002, correspondence from a previous owner states that the car received a new camshaft in 1985; was repainted and re-trimmed by Moto Technique in 1986; and fitted with a new stainless steel exhaust in 1999. Kent High Performance carried out a total mechanical overhaul and report in 2002, and in 2008 the Ferrari was treated to an extensive engine-out refurbishment by Nick Cartwright Specialist Cars (NCSC). Works carried out included a repaint in the original Dino Blu metallic, an interior re-trim in Blu Scuro, a new carpet set (retaining the original heel pads), and reconditioning the dashboard. In addition, the suspension was removed and the chassis stripped to bare metal and refinished in satin black. Suspension components were powder coated or zinc plated as required, while the engine and gearbox were washed down and all fixings refurbished before reinstallation. There are related bills totalling some £15,000 on file. A Tracker Horizon was fitted at this time also.

    Subsequently serviced by R Proietti Ltd in 2010 (£1,800) and NCSC in 2011 (£1,500), the Ferrari was purchased in April 2014 from NCSC, who fitted Campagnolo-style wheels in July 2014 at a cost of £2,600. The car was repainted Grigio Titanium during the current keeper's ownership (within the last five years). Dating back to 1976, there are numerous MoTs on file supporting the belief that the recorded mileage total of 38,695 in genuine. The most recent MoT was issued in May 2017 at 38,122 miles, and the car also comes with a V5C Registration Certificate and its original wallet containing the Operating Maintenance Service Book, Worldwide Service Centres Book, and Warranty Card.
