The much sought-after Ferrari 246 Dino GT was named after Enzo Ferrari's son Alfredino, who died in 1956, aged 24 years. Enzo Ferrari credits his son with the inspiration for a series of successful small and medium capacity V6 racing engines built by Ferrari from 1956, and in turn the name was given to a new line of mid-engined production Ferrari V6 coupés, which first went on sale in 1969. The Dino 246GT has proved to be one of the most satisfying and successful automobiles built by Ferrari and paved the way for the emerging generation of mid-engined Ferraris. It is widely regarded as one of the best-handling and most gratifying automobiles of the early 70s, it is one of the most attractive, delicately balanced designs ever produced by the masters at Pininfarina. As a result Dinos have enjoyed a well-deserved recent surge in popularity.
Chassis 04052 is a series 2 Dino GT that was supplied by HR Owen and first registered in June 1972. In 1979 having covered just 40,000 miles the car was parked up by its owner in his garage and laid to rest for a period of 25 years. Fast forward to 2005 when the car was purchased by its current owner and extracted from the garage where it had remained untouched but allowed to deteriorate with time and poor conditions.
A 5 year total restoration was set about immediately including removing the body from the chassis as well as the gearbox and engine. The car was totally stripped, restored and rebuilt right down to the last nut and bolt and is now presented in its finished condition having covered just 500 miles since completion. The engine and gearbox were of course totally rebuilt as part of the rebuild. The car is presented in the classic and most desirable combination of Rosso with black (original trim material!!) seats, black carpets and an alcantara dash. The car is accompanied by a file full of photos and documents relating to the thorough rebuild.
A stunning example ready to be used and enjoyed.
