WE ARE DELIGHTED TO CONFIRM THE FERRARI CLASSICHE CERTIFICATION OF THIS BEAUTIFUL & RARE FERRARI DINO.
To be able to take advantage of a proposition which immediately enhances the value of a superb Classic Car Investment Opportunity, is rare indeed.
To gain an outstanding, rare and beautiful car in the bargain is certainly unheard of.
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 (making it a K Registered Car) by Maranello Concessionaires, the car was delivered in the extremely rare colour of Azzurro 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 re-registered '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 full repaint in the original Azzurro Dino in 1991.
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.
The current owner is 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 form, current V5C registration document, and all the books including the original stamped warranty booklet & the original tool kit and jack are still in situ.

Dino [ˈdinɔ] was a marque for mid-engined, rear-drive sports cars produced by Ferrari from 1968 to 1976. Used for models with engines with fewer than 12 cylinders, it was an attempt by the company to offer a relatively low-cost sports car. The Ferrari name remained reserved for its premium V-12 and flat 12 models until 1976, when "Dino" was retired in favour of full Ferrari branding.
Named to honour Ferrari founder Enzo Ferrari's son and heir Dino Ferrari, the Dino models used Ferrari racing naming designation of displacement and cylinder count with two digits for the size of the engine in deciliters and the third digit to represent the number of cylinders, i.e. 246 being a 2.4-litre 6-cylinder and 308 being a 3.0-litre 8-cylinder. Ferrari street models of the time used a three-digit representation of the displacement in cubic centimeters of one of the 12 cylinders, which would have been meaningless in a brand with differing numbers of cylinders.
