One of only 235 Ferrari Dino 246GTs supplied to the UK in right-hand drive configuration, this stunning E-series car has to be one of the most original and ‘unmolested’ examples of its type. Ordered on the 2nd November 1971 by Maranello Concessionaires, the car was delivered in the extremely rare colour of Azurro Dino, with optional radio, nose bar and electric windows. It was supplied new to a Sussex-based precision instrument manufacturers . After only a couple of years the car was reregistered ‘EPN 4K’, the registration it carries today. The original owner, kept the Ferrari from 1975 to 2005, covering approximately 45,000 miles during his 30-year ownership. Unlike so many of its kind, this Ferrari Dino has been maintained on a regular basis, including a major overhaul and full repaint in the original Azzuro Dino in 1991. The interior remains original and un-restored.
Chosen on account of its originality, stunning colour and few owners, this exceptional Ferrari was exhibited at the Haynes National Motor Museum and then selected for a major article in Classic & Sports Car, appearing on the front cover of the magazine’s November 2012 edition. The new owner described how he had been interviewed by the original owner to see if he should be ‘allowed’ to own it. The article concluded that car was just ‘a bit special’.
Since then this beautiful Ferrari has featured in other publications including the Classic & Sports Car Calendar, and has changed hands twice more, passing to the current owner Sheikh AMARI. Currently displaying only 51,307 miles on the odometer, it is presented for sale in this remarkable condition, complete with a superb history file containing MoTs dating back to 1976, the original Maranello Concessionaires order, current V5C registration document, and all the books including the original stamped warranty booklet & the original tool kit and jack are still in situ.
