Ferrari 246 GT
1972 Ferrari 246 GT; US supplied LHD example finished in Argento Silver over Nero. Full in-house Engine Rebuild in 2015 and meticulously maintained ever since.
The Dino range of sports cars was named in honour of Enzo Ferrari's son, Alfredino, who designed a dual overhead-camshaft V6 engine for both road and racing use before tragically passing away at the age of 24.
The 206GT was the first model to be introduced in 1967, proving that Ferrari could compete with the likes of Porsche by producing a car in the more budget end of the sports car spectrum.
After 150 206s were produced, the updated 246 GT was introduced, boasting a bigger and more powerful engine; noticeable quicker than its predecessor.
Weighing only 2,400 pounds, the perfect weight distribution of the Dino thanks to its Mid-Engine layout was one of the defining features of the car, one of the all time great handing Ferraris, on top of being one of the most beautiful.
The Car we have in stock was ordered and owned by Keith Richards from delivery until 1986, by which time he had covered 25,000 miles in the car. In 1986 the car was added to an extremely prestigious Japanese collection, before making it's way to the UK in 2014 to be sold at Coy's. Finally, the car made it's way to Joe Macari for an extensive Engine Rebuild which restored the car to it's prime!
In addition to a car that sits in absolutely fantastic condition wearing the beautiful colours of Argento Silver over Nero and the car also sits on period correct Cromodoro alloy wheels. The car comes with a V5, a Japanese export certificate and a letter from The Rolling Stones' Tour Manager Alan Dunn confirming Kieth Richards' ownership of the vehicle.
This car is an exquisite opportunity to not only own a significant piece of Ferrari history, but also to own a very significant piece of Musical history. Furthermore, the value of Dino's continues to increase so to say that this is a wise investment for the future is a real understatement!
