Auction Block: 1973 Ferrari Dino 246 GTS

Sep 20, 2021

Category: Rides

While not technically a Ferrari due to the fact that it wears different badges, we still consider the original Dino — with its impossibly gorgeous flowing body and mid-engine V6 layout — to be one of the best Ferraris of all time. The Prancing Horse’s short-lived sub-brand was named for founder Enzo Ferrari’s deceased son, and the original Dino 206 GT made for quite the tribute to the Ferrari scion — especially once it evolved into the more-powerful targa-topped 246 GTS. If we could own any Dino, the 246 GTS is the one we’d go for, and wouldn’t you know it, a beautiful example is currently up for auction on Bring a Trailer.

This 1973 Dino 246 GTS was owned by a single family in Florida from new until 2008 when it was sold to its second owner in California. Now, you could be its third caretaker. The car looks immaculate, with its Rosso Bordeaux exterior in excellent shape overall. That’s partly because the car was repainted in 2008, but it did keep its rare original color. The same can’t be said for the interior, which had the factory beige vinyl swapped out for tan leather by the previous owner. An upgrade, if you ask us, but worth noting just the same. The car houses a mid-mounted 2.4L V6 engine that made 192 horsepower out of the factory and is mated to a five-speed manual transmission. Niceties include the removable roof panel, 14” Cromodora wheels, and air conditioning (!). Bidding on this 1973 Ferrari Dino 246 GTS is underway at Bring a Trailer’s website, where it has already reached $375,000 with a week-and-a-half to go as of this writing. The auction is set to end on September 28.

Purchase: $375,000+
