Introduced at the Geneva Auto Show in 1967, the Fiat Dino Coupe was, like its Spider stablemate, an attempt by Enzo Ferrari to homologate a V-6 engine for Formula 2 racing. For 1967, Formula 2 required six-cylinder engines built in more than 500 examples per year. Ferrari designed the V-6 engines; coachwork for the Spider and Coupe was provided by Pininfarina and Bertone, respectively, and Fiat finished the cars at their Torino factory.

For 1969, the V-6 was enlarged to 2,418 cc, rear independent suspension was fitted, and construction moved to Maranello. This example was assembled in Ferrari’s facility in mid-1971, and registered on November 18 to Licia Ceresoli, a woman in the northern Italian province of Cremona. Forty years later, Francesco Torresan, registered the Dino in Montebelluna. The coupe was imported to the US by a Florida owner in 2014, sold to Hervé Labesse in California later that year, then purchased by its current owner in 2015.

The Dino bears the hallmarks of pride of Italian ownership over four decades. Presented in Argento Metallizzato, it retains its original dark blue leather interior and red carpets. Offered with FIVA and ASI certificates, tools, jack, and Italian registration paperwork, this is a superb example of Fiat’s beloved GT.
