A classic 1972 Ferrari Dino 246 GT once owned by Keith Richards from the Rolling Stones is set to go under the hammer on May 9th at the Coys’ auction in Monaco.
This particular Ferrari Dino 246GT was given to Richards when it was brand new in February 1972. He owned it until 1986 but in that time, he did rack up a fairly impressive 40,233 km despite touring and recording with the Rolling Stones so frequently during those years.
Discussing the car, Coys Managing Partner Chris Routledge said, “A Dino offered at no reserve is rare enough in itself and would make this is a highly desirable and collectible item in its own right, but when one adds to this proven long-term ownership by rock and roll aristocracy, the Keith Richards’s car has to be the ultimate Dino and will surely give any car collector and rock enthusiast a great ‘Satisfaction’!”
Despite being produced by Ferrari, the Dino 246 GT wasn’t actually officially known as one. Beneath the body, it is powered by a 2.4-liter V6 engine delivering 175 hp which when combined with the lightweight overall weight of just 1,080 kg and the 5-speed manual transmission, makes the 1972 Ferrari Dino 246 GT quite the little performance sports car!
