Sporty-elegant FIAT Dino Spider with very elaborately overhauled mechanics in “driver” condition suitable for everyday use.


INQUIRY ABOUT THIS VEHICLE

In order to be able to compete in Formula 2, Ferrari had to meet the requirement of selling at least 500 production cars with the identical engine block within one year. In the mid-1960s, however, this was not feasible for the Maranello factory alone. Enzo Ferrari therefore offered his friend Giovanni Agnelli – the boss of FIAT – to use the 2-litre V6 developed by his son Alfredo for his own models as part of a cooperation. Thus Pininfarina received the order from Agnelli for the design of a Spider, the competition from Bertone accordingly received the order to design a coupé with this engine.

Both FIAT Dino models featured the Scuderia’s all-aluminium V6 – in this case producing 160 hp and made suitable for everyday use by the well-known engine designer Aurelio Lampredi. The top speed of the Spider, which debuted in 1966, was 130 mph – impressive for the time! Ferrari was thus able to achieve the necessary number of units for homologation, as both FIAT body variants sold well and were numerically supplemented by the beautiful Dino 206 GT coupé from Ferrari itself, which had the same engine.

The vehicle on offer was first registered in the United States in 1967 – unfortunately, there is no longer any evidence that Ron Wood of the Rolling Stones was the owner. Much later, the car came from the USA via Holland to Germany, where the owner had a 2.4-litre engine including gearbox and drive train installed by the specialists at DinoParts in 2012 after an extensive overhaul. From 1969 onwards, the larger engine was manufactured from grey cast iron by Ferrari itself in the course of an overhaul and now produced 180 hp in the FIAT models and 195 hp in the Ferrari Dino 246 GT/S.

This car has the chassis number -xx525 and is therefore the very last Dino Spider of the first series. It is in a technically extensively overhauled condition and in this state certainly suitable for long journeys. The seat covers, door panels, carpets and also the soft top have been professionally renewed by an upholsterer. The dashboard is dominated by a Nardi wooden steering wheel in front of the six round instruments, while the centre console shows a contemporary radio and the ZF manual gearbox is crowned by an alloy knob.

The paintwork and the stainless steel and chrome trim parts show a distinct patina, so that the car can be ascribed an overall “driver quality” in its as-is condition – with potential for further optimisation. More than EUR 75,000 adds up in the present invoices of the long-time current owner. The vehicle can be registered immediately to its new owner with the historic car number plates already issued and will receive a major service for delivery to. Further work can be carried out if required by individual arrangement.

A Dino Spider is certainly a very exclusive way to drive an open FIAT – the V6 engine with four overhead camshafts from Ferrari makes the model technically highly attractive. Pininfarina’s styling is another example of its exceptional design skills: the athletically curved wings and dynamic front end add considerable overtaking prestige and make the car timelessly beautiful – a combination that is hard to resist…
