Keith Richards’ 1972 Ferrari Dino 246GT rolls to auction
Keith Richards’ 1972 Ferrari Dino 246GT is coming up for auction.
Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards bought the Dino brand new in California in 1972, bringing it over to the UK in 1975.
He kept the Dino for fourteen years until April 1986, covering just 25,000 miles.
The car is being offered up for sale at Coys’ Monaco auction on May 9. There’s no reserve on the car, which means there’s no minimum price at which the Dino has to sell at.
“A Dino offered at no reserve is rare enough in itself, but when one adds to this proven long-term ownership by rock and roll aristocracy, the Keith Richards car has to be the ultimate Dino,” a Coys spokesman said.
Ferrari first premiered the Dino 246GT at the Turin Motor Show in November of 1969, taking over from the 206GT that preceded it. Underneath sat a rear-mounted, transverse engine 2.4-litre V6 pushing out 195bhp, though the only acceleration figure we can provide is a 0-1000m time of 26.8s and a top speed of 146 mph.
