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.

This RHD "M-Series" 246 Dino GT is one of the most original and unmolested examples of its type. The car was originally ordered on the 2nd of November 1971 by Maranello Concessionaires in the extremely rare colour of "Azurro Dino" Blue with optional Electric windows, radio and nose bar. This stunning Dino was supplied new to Christopher Andrews of J.E Baty in Sussex. The supplying Ferrari dealer took Mr Andrew's Aston Martin DBS V8 in part exchange and registered the Dino on the private plate "1 DUF". Mr Andrews owned the car for only a couple of years before a Mr Terry Wells purchased the car in circa 1975 and registered it as EPN 4K, the registration the car still carries today. Mr Wells owned the car from 1975 to 2005. During his 30 year ownership the car covered approximately 45,000 miles. Unlike so many Dinos this car has been well maintained on a regular basis including a major overhaul in 1991 including a full repaint in the original "Azzuro Dino".

Given the originality of the car, its stunning colour and low ownership history, this exceptional Dino was exhibited in the Hynes National Motor Museum and then chosen in November 2012 to be part of a major Classic and Sportscar article and on the front cover of the magazine's November 2012 issue. The car's then owner Mr Hutchinson described how Mr Wells had interviewed him when purchasing the car to see if he was "allowed" to own it. The article concluded that car was just "A bit special".

Since the article this beautiful Dino has featured in other press including the Classic and Sportscar Calendar. Now the car has had just one more custodian and is presented for sale in remarkable condition, complete with a superb history file which includes a MOTs back to 1976, the original Maranello order, all books including the rare original stamped blue "warranty booklet", the car is also accompanied by its tools and jack, original nose bar as fitted when new and its original unrestored interior. This well-known and extremely rare "M-series" Dino, presented in unmolested condition in its original and very rare colour combination is, as Classic and Sportscar concluded "a bit special".
