Ferrari 246 GTS Dino: A highly desirable car
Search Driven for for sale
One of the rarest classic Ferraris on the planet, once owned by Formula 1 Managing Director Ross Brawn, is available for sale in Britain.
London classic car retailer Hexagon is offering the rare Flares variant of the 1974 Ferrari 246 GTS Dino.
The open-top Dino features the famous Flares package of factory-fitted 7-inch sand-cast Campagnolo wheels with a wider track and flared wheelarches.
Hexagon Classics says just 12 examples were built, and the right-hand-drive car is also the penultimate model to be exported to the UK.
Freshly re-painted in period Bianco Polo Park white, and with just 24,000 miles (3862km) on the clock, the car is said to be in almost as-new condition.
It features re-trimmed black leather seats to Daytona specification (so named after the V12 coupe, which was also on sale at the time).
When combined with the wheel arches and Campagnolo wheels in period, the factory-fitted package was known as Chairs and Flares.
As with all Dinos, power comes from a mid-mounted 195hp 2.4-litre V6 giving a top speed of 146mph (234km/h).
The car comes with the manufacturer's order and associated invoices to Maranello Concessionaires, the original Concessionaires sales order and correspondence, operating handbook and parts book, handbook wallet and historical chassis file including marque specialist invoices. It also carries Ferrari Classiche certification.
Hexagon Classics chairman Paul Michaels said: "This is one very special Dino indeed. Not only does it have a famous previous owner in the shape of Ross Brawn, but it is also one of the rarest in the world.
"The factory-fitted 'Flares' package is highly desirable - those stunning Campagnolo wheels, wider track and, of course, flared arches, are subtle, yet stunning, additions to an already striking car."
