FERRARI 246 GTS DINO 1972 - Full test drive in top gear - V6 Engine sounds! | SCC TV
A car that embodies so much personal Enzo Ferrari history: The story has it that the DINO 246 GTS has an engine that was co-developed by his son Alfredino in the 1950s. Please support us by voting thumbs up if you liked our work. Thanks a lot! Dino was a marque for mid-engined, rear-drive sports cars produced by Ferrari from 1968 to 1976. The Dino marque was meant to be used for cars with engines that had fewer than 12 cylinders, reserving the Ferrari name for the V-12 and flat 12 models. The Dino name was retired after that point, in favour of conventional Ferrari branding. The Dino brand was an attempt by Ferrari to produce a relatively low-cost sports car. The Dino models used Ferrari racing naming designation of displacement and cylinder count with two digits for the size of the engine in deciliters and the third digit to represent the number of cylinders, i.e., 246 being a 2.4-litre 6-cylinder and 308 being a 3.0-litre 8-cylinder. Ferrari street models of the time used a three-digit representation of the displacement in cubic centimeters of one of the 12 cylinders, which would have been meaningless in a brand with differing numbers of cylinders. The Dino 246 was the first Ferrari model produced in high numbers. It is lauded by many for its intrinsic driving qualities and groundbreaking design. In 2004, Sports Car International placed the car at number six on its list of Top Sports Cars of the 1970s. Motor Trend Classic placed the 206/246 at number seven in their list of the 10 "Greatest Ferraris of all time".

Ferrari Dino GTS - J.D Classics
1974 Ferrari Dino GTS JD Classics have restored numerous Ferrari, and the Dino is a model in which we have a great deal of expertise. This RHD 1974 Ferrari Dino GTS - Finished in Blue Sera with Tan hide and Dark Blue carpets - was subject to a 2 year full JD Classics restoration. We started with an original unrestored car which had done about 27,000 miles - and although we have seen much worse - the body on this car was ripe for restoration. We undertook a full body restoration on the car - and then a bare metal repaint in the beautiful colour of Blue Sera. The car was re-trimmed to its original specification - in tan hide - and we were lucky that all the hard-to-find interior parts were still with car for the restoration. The engine was fully rebuilt in our race engine shop - to standard specification and the car runs superbly. The only things which were not restored - and needed to be replaced - were the steering rack, wiring loom, suspension bushes and other serviceable items. Other than these items - the car is original and after a 3500 hour restoration is one of the finest examples of a 246 GTS anywhere in the world. The reality is that this car has been finished to a standard that probably exceeds the condition of the original car when new - but the owner now has a car which drives superbly and befits one of the most beautiful Ferrari body shapes made. These cars have now reached a value point - where the investment costs of a full restoration is justified. If you want the best - talk to us - we have great deal of expertise with these models and love to bring these cars back to life for owners who want to really enjoy the great driving experience these cars offer.
