Ferrari Dino 246 206 GT fully restored, Matching Number and Colors, TOP qu 1968

General description : How does one describe a Dino206 GT? Where does one start? Is it the car’s exclusivity? The fact that between 1967-1969 only 152 were built? The near perfect proportions? The aluminium bodywork? Or even the fantastic 65 degree V6 Ferrari engine? Let’s start at the beginning. Enzo Ferrari wanted to market a smaller, cheaper car to rival the Porsche 911. His son Alfredo, Dino for intimates, had recently died. Alfredo was a Ferrari engineer who mainly concentrated on developing smaller racing engines, like the F2 2.0 V6 engine. To commemorate his son and not to interfere with the V12 Ferrari's, he decided to give the small car the Dino name. To reduce the risk of reputation damage it was decided to market the car under its own Dino brand. Our car is one of the 152 Dino 206 GT’s and has truly been restored in fantastic fashion. In the past Nico Aaldering commissioned a full “Nut&Bolt” restoration. Everything was done to bring this Dino 206 GT back to the highest level. The chassis and body were taken back to bare metal and re-sprayed in the original colour “Bianco Polo Park”. As one might expect with a top-level restoration the car’s condition is second to none. The car has fine, straight and correctly aligned body panels. Underneath the car is in perfect condition. The quality of the white uni-lacquer is perfect and lends a splendid understated aura. One look and you realise that this Dino 206 GT has been thoroughly restored with quality exuding from every pore. The 14 inch Cromodora wheels suit the car perfectly. The re-chromed details are in perfect condition. Everything is in tip-top condition and has similarly been well maintained. Not only does this Dino 206 GT look good on the outside, the interior is also fantastic making this a very desirable car. One look at the Veglia Borletti instrument panel will convince that you are in a very special car. The wonderful curves of the front fenders are in perfect view from you seat behind the wheel, allowing you to perfectly place this compact thorough-breed on the road. We are sure you will want to be driving this car as much as possible. Driving this car is a pure feast. The low curb weight and fabulous 2.0 V6 Ferrari engine provides tickles all your senses mile after mile. According to factory information the engine delivers 180 Hp at an ear-pleasing 8000 revolutions. The complete engine, gearbox and all other mechanical parts were rebuilt by specialists. The whole process was meticulously recorded with photos and invoices. The engine and gearbox are the original factory issued components.

About Ferrari
The first Ferrari road car was the 125 S introduced in 1947 and powered by a 1.5 L V12 engine, right?
Well it's not quite that simple, Ferrari did in fact produce e Tipo 815, in 1940. Tipo 815 was designed by ex-Alfa Romeo engineers Alberto Massimino and Vittorio Bellentani and by Enrico Nardi under Enzo's company but legal issues with the former associate Alfa Romeo prevented Ferrari from launching the Ferrari marque at that point.

Enzo did produce a series of fine road cars in the 50's and 60's but they were merely to finance his true passion racing, wheather GT/Sports car or Grand Prix. The 50's saw the birth of Ferrari's most memorable cars, 250 GTB (tour de France) 250 Testa Rossa, 250 GT swb just to name a few.

Under the surface tension was growing though. In November 1961 long-time sales manager Girolamo Gardini made an ultimatum to Enzo: if tensions continued, he would leave the company. As a result, Gardini was ousted, as well as Scuderia Ferrari manager Romolo Tavoni, chief engineer Carlo Chiti, experimental sports car development chief Giotto Bizzarrini, and a number of others who stood by them.
Without Chiti and Bizzarrini the development of what was to become the most quintessential Ferrari and today the world's most expensive car, 250 GTO, was at a pivoting point. 250 GTO project was saved by a young engineer Mauro Forghieri and long-time racing bodyman Sergio Scaglietti who stepped in and took over the program with known results.

In addition to 250 GTO, Ferrari launced such master pieces as 250 LM, 250P, 275 GTB, 365 GTB/4 "Daytona" during the the 60's
By the late 60's Ferrari's prototypes' success came to a sudden halt by a new competitor, GT40. Ford turned to Lola to produce a Ferrari beating long distance racer after Enzo had cut the deal off with Henry Ford II making the latter absolutely boil with fury. The collaboration between Ford and Lola created the mighty Ford GT40 that gave Ferrari some heavy hits in Le Mans 24 to come.
By the end of the 60's FIAT purchased 50% of the company, starting a development that has led to a new mass-produced era of Ferraris.
