Keith Richards’ 1972 Ferrari Dino 246 GT probably has plenty of stories to tell. What would be most interesting, however, is to find out how this supercar came out without any major damage given Richards’ penchant wild driving—just take a look at Richards’ Bentley Continental, which he crashed more than once.
The Dino was named after Enzo Ferrari’s son and was raced as both a six and an eight cylinder car. In 1968, the name was used for the production model, a mid-engine, two-seat Dino 206 GT. Pinanfarina designed the body and the car was produced by Scaglietti. In 1969, production of the 206 ceased and the 2.4 liter 246 GT took its place. While the 206 used aluminum, the 246 transitioned to steel. The 246 was capable of 195 horsepower. The 246 is generally grouped into three categories—the L, M, and E cars. The E cars appeared in late 1971. These cars also features a Targa-top version, which was released in 1972.
Richards bought his Dino new in 1972. Throughout his European tours, he used the Dino extensively. While the band flew to destinations, Richards opted instead to drive whenever he could, which is how the Dino accumulated its 25,000 miles. The Dino is liveried in Argento (silver) with Nero (black) leather for the interior. The Cromodora alloy wheels are period correct, and the car comes with all the proper providence to prove Richards’ ownership.
