This particular Dino 206, chassis number 00294, is an Italian-delivery example that was delivered new to Rome. First registered on February 1, 1969, the car passed through several owners before passing to the current owner’s father in June of 1981. It remained in his family ever since.
Today, the car is presented in largely original condition, having only received one recent bare-metal respray. Otherwise, it remains unrestored and in very well-preserved condition throughout, still wearing original traditional black Rome license Read More
On May 7, 1951, chassis 0116A was sent to Carrozzeria Touring to be fitted with its elegant Barchetta coachwork. On June 14, it was returned. Two days later it was delivered to its first owner, Pierre Louis-Dreyfus, a resident of Paris, a World War II hero, and founder of the Louis-Dreyfus Financial Group.
In his spare time, Mr. Louis-Dreyfus was an enthusiastic racing driver and sportsman.
A regular entrant in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Louis-Dreyfus sent his new Read More
Based on the 308 model that it was replacing, the 328 GTS differed with its larger 3.2-liter engine and subtle appearance updates. Its 270-hp mid-mounted V8 engine with 5-speed manual transmission provided the power and thrills worthy of any sports car bearing the Ferrari name. The sleek Pininfarina lines made for a car as visually exciting as it was to drive. For all of that and more, it has gained allegiance from many Ferrari fans as being one of the Read More
What do a 1968 Ford GT40 Mk III, a 1967 Porsche 911S, a 1972 4.9 Ghibli Spider SS, a Toyota 2000GT, a 1972 Ferrari 246 GT and a 1968 DeTomaso Mangusta prototype have in common?
These are exotics with 6- and 8-cylinder engines placed in the front, middle and rear of their chassis. The GT40 is a barely disguised race car, and the Dino is a high-speed grand touring car. Imagine the 911 as an extraordinarily original survivor, and the Read More
In late 1957, just as production of Pininfarina’s Series I cabriolet was getting under way, Ferrari was in the process of developing a new open 250 GT variant for the booming North American market. Ferrari’s leading United States dealers, Luigi Chinetti and John von Neumann, impressed upon the factory the need for a simple, dual-purpose 250 GT spider — a car that could be used to commute during the week and then raced with success on the weekend.

This immensely desirable and highly usable Ferrari 275 GTB/C is the third of only 12 such Berlinetta Competizione models produced by the world-famous Maranello factory, and is absolutely not to be confused with the normal, standard production GTB models.
Here was a purebred endurance-racing competition car whose fundamental bodyshape and basic technical specification were almost the only characteristics it shared in common with the production model it represented on the great race circuits of the world.

The aggressive 275 GTB is today more coveted by collectors than the Lusso, even though the Lusso’s design has endured the test of time-generally agreed as among the most pure and beautiful products to come out of the collaboration between Ferrari and Pininfarina. The 275 GTB has other distinctive attributes, not least its place as the first fully independent suspension Ferrari road car and the power and tractability of its 3.3-liter 600 V12 engine developed from the one-liter Colombo “short Read More
