This very special prototype will be presented for sale at the Retromobile Salon in Paris on 10 February 2017.
Some 52 years after it was first exhibited by Pininfarina at the 1965 Paris Motor Show. The one-off model,
built at the request of Enzo Ferrari, paved the way for one (tithe marque's most well-known and best-loved
models, the Ferrari Dino. Built on chassis 0840, a type 585 competition tubular chassis, this Dino prototype,
designed by Leonardo Fioravanti, is the very essence of new period of design at Ferrari, anticipating the Dino
206 and 246 GT, and later the 308, 328 and 288 GTO.
Matthieu Lamoure, Managing Director Artcurial Motorcars
"The Dino's body, all curves, fits this competition 206 chassis like a couture dressfits an elegant woman.
We are proud to present this jewel of Italian automobile design, this unique object designed by the wind,
which heralded the styling at Ferrari in subsequent decades."
Key features of the car, such as the concave side air intakes and the styling of the front wings and rear
window, were incorporated into the final production model. This remains, however, a highly distinctive and
totally unique prototype.
The car has exceptional provenance. On 19 April 1967 it was offered by Sergio Pininfarina, with the agreement
of Enzo Ferrari, to the Musee de l'Automobile at Le Mans, where it has been exhibited ever since. This
museum was set up to display cars that have played their part in the history of the 24-hour Race. The sale of
this car will help promote and add to the ambitious and exciting collection belonging to the Automobile Club
