Ferrari Dino 246 1971

General description : Created to honour Enzo’s son, the 246 GT was home to an evolution of the Ferrari Formula 1 V6 powerplant. Praised by the motoring press of the period, compact dimensions, a forgiving chassis and linear power delivery make the Dino a very enjoyable and capable companion, even in the present day.
 
Delivered new to il Signore Carlo Cavicchini of Genoa, Italy, this Dino 246GT enjoyed a very long stay under the Mediterranean climes of the Italian Riviera. Mr Cavicchini, a Ferrari aficionado kept his Dino until 1999 and we understand he sold it to an American collector in San Francisco who restored it.
 
In 2010 Mr Petricone, from Geneva, bought the car and became the third and last owner; maintaining her to the very high standard you see today.
 
The Dino 246GT has always been a popular model among the Ferrari Collectors. It represents the first mid-engine, road legal Ferrari and is a testament to Enzo Ferrari’s son, Alfredo (nicknamed Dino).
 
Every collection needs a Dino and this 246GT is a very fine example of the breed. Ready to be enjoyed by its new owner, this is also a sure opportunity to acquire one of the fastest appreciating Ferrari.

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.
