1970 Ferrari Dino 246 GT L Series For Sale
More than just another pretty face from the fine folks at Ferrari, the 1970 Dino 246 GT L Series comes complete with a backstory that’s just as appealing – and now you have the opportunity to own one of these rare gems.
Created by Enzo Ferrari himself, this vehicle was built as a tribute to his late son, Alfredo “Dino” Ferrari. Although he was supposed to be the heir to the iconic brand, Alfredo passed away at just 24 years due to a kidney disease. Enzo channeled his emotion through this vehicle, which shows just how special it truly is. Right away you’ll notice there is no prancing horse – from the hood ornament to the rear badge, and even the steering wheel. Where one would typically find the Ferrari logo, Dino emblems now stand proudly in their place, and the brand was actually offered up as a separate marquee during its time frame. The 2-door is powered by a 2.4-liter V6 engine sourced from Fiat, a setup that produces 195-horsepower. While this may not sound like a lot, it was actually quite impressive during the 70s.
The vehicle is extremely rare. Pininfarina penned the design for Ferrari, and there were only 357 total units manufactured over the 2-year period these were available. Getting your hands on one is next to impossible, which is why we figured it was worth letting you know that one will be coming available next year. In February 2015, this gem will be auctioned off in Paris, and enthusiasts expect the Ferrari to fetch north of $500,000 when all’s said and done. [Purchase]
