The Dino 246 GTS was introduced in 1972, following the success of the 246 GT, and was built for sale in the United States of America. The GTS could be distinguished from the GT by the absence of the small rear windows and an integrated 206 S-type roll bar on which there are three air intakes that are used to channel air to the rear window when the targa roof is in place. The removable targa roof panel can be stored behind the seats. The chassis was also modified with reinforced extra bracing along the sides and front of the engine frame. A mere 1274 GTSs were built and only 235 right hand drive examples exist, with production halting in 1974. The engine is a 2.4 litre V6.
This Series III GTS comes in Azzuro Metalliazzato (Sea Blue Metalic) and was not one of the nine Dino colours; and therefore was "a special order". Full leather was also chosen, which is most rare for a Dino. It was supplied to its first owner in February 1973 and in 1975 was repainted black by its third owner. In 1976 it was purchased by Fewster & Dennis Ltd and the car was kept by company director Albert Dennis for 28 years until his passing. Over the 28 year period, the car was used very sparingly and for many years was in a dismantled state, whilst the engine and mechanicals were rebuilt. In 2004, the car was purchased by Autoscuderia in Bristol (6th owner) and in 2007 a bare metal body restoration was undertaken, returning the Dino to its original colour. Extensive mechanical restoration work was also carried out by Autoscuderia.
The car has covered an indicated 20,500 miles from new, has been fully serviced and is accompanied by an extensive history file. Sold by DK Engineering in 2012 to the current owner who resides overseas, this exceptional Dino has been cared for and stored by ourselves ever since, regularly exercised and serviced every year since, the car presents extremely well. The engine bay has been cleaned and detailed and the leather work in the interior has been overhauled to refresh the look, a further major service is being carried out on the car prior to sale to ensure this Dino needs for nothing. A superb and highly original UK RHD Dino, with exceptionally low mileage this example is ready and available to view at our showrooms located just outside London.
