Rare Ferrari Dino Fueling Bidding War

Rarity often breeds desirability in a car and that’s certainly the case with this 1973 Ferrari Dino 246 GTS. With three days of bidding left on this rare “chairs and flares” US-spec spyder, the fact it’s one of only 91 built is helping to push the top bid ever higher.

McLaren Elva poised to wow at upcoming auction.

At the writing of this article, the current top bid is $550,000, an amount we fully expect to balloon further, particularly in the final few hours. The fact that it presents fantastically in brilliant Giallo Fly with a black removable targa top along with flared fenders and other perks only further fuels interest in this ride.

The interior is just as compelling with Daytona-style seats upholstered with Nero Connolly leather. There’s also a MOMO steering wheel, Borletti AC, and a Becker AM/FM radio. Power windows add another welcome convenience.

Whomever the new owner might be, they’ll surely enjoy the 2.4-liter quad-cam V6 engine with tripe Weber carburetors. Adding to the driving enjoyment is a five-speed manual transaxle and a Tubi-style exhaust and servo-assisted disc brakes. While some might make this a garage queen, we think it would be blast to drive on canyon roads.
