Exact Description of this Specific Motorcar


1 of 13 Rhd "Chairs and Flares" built

Shortly before the Dino 246 GT’s production run ended in 1974, Ferrari upgraded the vehicle with wider Campagnola wheels – accommodating them by flaring the wheelarches – and ‘Daytona’ pattern bucket seats, featuring an elaborate stitch pattern. This version, known as the ‘Chairs and Flares’, has become one of the rarest and most desirable 246s.

It is particularly scarce in right-hand drive format: this vehicle, built in Maranello in October 1973, was one of just 13 produced for UK importer Maranello Concessionaires and dealer Ian Anthony Sales of Bury. Originally finished in a ‘Viola Metallizato’ violet, it was first registered in the UK in May 1974.

In 2007, the vehicle underwent a major refurbishment: disassembled, its spaceframe and bodywork were resprayed, its interior re-covered and its mechanicals reconditioned. Now finished in Argento Silver, it ran for a decade before receiving a second overhaul in 2018 – when its carburettors were reconditioned and its fuel pipes and hoses, steering rack and brake callipers replaced. The odometer currently stands at just over 86,000 miles. 

Shod in new Michelin XWX 205/70/14 tyres, this ‘Chairs and Flares’ model has been well looked-after and retains its unique, original features, such as the Becker Mexico radio, leather-cased toolkit and alloy-spoked Momo steering wheel. As the vehicle that led the charge to mid-engined sports cars, the Dino 246 GT is a living piece of automotive history; and for a piece of history, it is also astonishingly good fun.
