This is believed to be one of only two or three examples finished in Azzuro Dino, as well as one of only 235 UK right-hand drive 246GTs, and experts think that it can fetch anywhere between £240,000 ($310,000) and £280,000 ($362,000).
“This stunning E-Series Dino has to be one of the most original and unmolested 246GTs anywhere,” said Silverstone Auctions exec Guy Lees-Milne. “The Dino is a very popular model among Ferrari enthusiasts, and given that this example is one of so few finished in the stunning Azzuro Dino blue and has been Classiche awarded, it’s a perfect example for collectors.”
Features include a Nero leather interior and optional radio, nose bar and electric windows. Since its delivery in December 1971, the car has had four keepers and has amassed a total of 51,786 miles (83,341 km).
In 1991, a major overhaul was performed, comprised of an engine rebuild and a fresh coat of paint. Last year, the suspension and brakes, as were other minor parts, were upgraded for a cost of almost £10,000 ($12,945).
The car’s next owner will also end up with a Classiche ‘Certificato di Autenticita’ (Certificate of Authenticity) issued on July 25, 2016, placed inside a a bespoke red box with an enamel badge.
