1972→1974 Dino 246 GTS
At the 1972 Geneva Motor Show, Ferrari released an open-top version of the Dino 246 called the GTS. Over 1200 examples were produced over a two year period.
The 246 GTS had a removable roof panel similar to the 1967 Porsche 911 Targa. Both these cars copied the idea from the Surrey-Top Triumph TR4 which was the first to use such a panel.
The Dino line was created in honor of Enzo Ferrari's son Alfredo Ferrari who was championing the V6 engine before his untimely death. The series began with a number of 206 sport prototypes and eventually the 246 road cars.
One of the ultimate specification Dinos was altered to accept 7½-inch wide Campagnolo wheels. These Chairs and Flares cars featured Group 4-inspired wheel arches and seats from the 365 GTB/4 Daytona.

Ferrari Dino 246 GTS - sold for €129,734
Our racing red Dino GTS, registered in Paris on 26 June 1975, is a superb example, and the best version for driving in sunny weather!

When acquired by its current owner in 1992, the car had non-original elements (like outsize speakers) and its engine was not working perfectly. Franck (the collection's mechanic) was thus instructed to give it a complete overhaul. The 'ma... more

1974 Ferrari Dino 246 GTS Barn Find with 2,910 miles - sold for $270,000
One of the first Ferrari experts to inspect this barn-find 1974 Ferrari Dino 246 GTS described it without hesitation as “the finest original example on Earth.” In fact, with just 2,900 miles on the odometer after sitting in storage for over thirty years, the car shows barely a hint of the decades that have passed since it last saw the road and required very little to return it to perfect readiness.

1974 Ferrari Dino 246 GTS 07724 - sold for $302,500
We hear the term “survivor” often these days, and no better word can describe this fine Dino Ferrari. Even the mouse hair dashboard is original, an element that very often gets replaced on the best of cars. Very few Bianco Dinos with Daytona seats were produced, and this will surely be among the most original of those that survive in their original specification—a 246 GTS that allows one to see an example much as it was when it left the factor... more
