Re: Dino 246 GTS

I don't think many cars are cool but this one is, without a doubt, sub-zero.

Hey! My proposal! COOL COOL COOL.

And-my compliments, Ant. You called it a Dino-not a Ferrari.

Re: Dino 246 GTS

This one belongs in the fridge!

Even though not very powerful, the design is a masterpiece. Gorgeous exterior and a gorgeous mini-Daytona dashboard. One of the best designed cars built in the Ferrari factory. Would love to own one even though my Alfa is more powerfull

See it as a good painter: not really appreciated when it was created (by Ferraristi) and now, years after production died, priceless and fully adopted by Ferraristi.

Yep! And Roger Moore had an Aston-not a V8 but was made to look like one, I believe it was a straight-six DBS

Yes he did, although his was actually a 246 GT (not GTS); difference was that the GTS had a removable roof panel for poseur appeal, but the body lost rigidity as a result. The GT was therefore the better car, and even more sub zero than the GTS.

Also correct!

(This is my specialist subject )

Amazingly, down the pub no one ever asks me about the cars from The Persuaders so I'm enjoying the moment.

Re: Dino 246 GTS

A sub-zero Ferrari. Rare and beautiful indeed.



Yeah, yeah, I know it's a Dino not a Ferrari by badge (as mentioned by BF and others).. A rose by another name etc etc and I'm no great worshipper of the brand.

For me, this is definitely sub-zero

You should have put up pics of a red one though Ant

Re: Dino 246 GTS

my favourite ferrari(in GT form), sub zero, i nearly bought one of these about 10 years ago with my dad when prices were in a slump, alas we didnt buy it in the end since which time the prices have trebled

it was only badged as a dino in tribute to enzo's son, so anyone who says it isnt a ferrari is mistaken.

Well, that's what the randomizer told me to choose.

And I learned about the Dino while researching the car for the poll.
