Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Orlando proud to present this Beautiful Red 1972 Ferrari 246 GT Dino. You will definitely enjoy driving around in style with this Dino while shifting gears down the road. This is a timeless vehicle that will never go "out of style" and always be a good investment. The Dino road cars marque was created to market a lower priced, more affordable sports car capable of taking on the Porsche 911. Ferrari's expensive V12s well exceeded the 911 in both performance and price. Enzo Ferrari did not want to diminish his exclusive brand with a cheaper car, so the Dino was created. Although a mid-engine layout was common in the world of sports car racing at the time, adapting it to a production car was quite daring. Such a design placed more of the car's weight over the driven wheels, and allowed for a streamlined nose, but led to a cramped passenger compartment and more challenging handling. Lamborghini created a stir in 1966 with its mid-engine Miura, but Enzo Ferrari felt a mid-engine Ferrari would be unsafe in the hands of his customers. Eventually he partially relented and a mid-engine Dino concept car was built for the 1965 Paris Motor Show. Response to the radically styled car was positive, so Ferrari allowed it to go into production, rationalizing the lower power of the V6 engine would result in a more manageable car. In 1969 the 206 GT was superseded by the more powerful Dino 246 GT. The 246 GT was powered by an enlarged 2,419.20 cc (147.6 cu in; 2.4 L) V6 engine, producing 192 hp at 7,600 rpm in European specification. Initially available as a fixed-top GT coupe, a Targa topped GTS was also offered after 1971. Other notable changes from the 206 were the body, now made of steel instead of aluminum, and a 2.4 in longer wheelbase than the 206. Three series of the Dino 246 GT were built, with differences in wheels, windshield wiper coverage, and engine ventilation. Dino 246 production numbered 2,295 GTs and 1,274 GTSs, for a total production run of 3,569 The exterior of this Dino is painted Red and works very well with the Black interior. This 1972 Dino powertrain is a 2.4 Liter V-6 and teamed together with a 4 Speed Transmission. This beautiful example has been well maintained and is ready for a new owner. The options of this beautiful car include AM/FM Radio, Spare Tire, Jack, Seat Belts, and Original Wheels wrapped in Radial Tires.
