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.

Franck (the collection's mechanic) was thus instructed to give it a complete overhaul. The 'ma... more
