As a result of an agreement between Fiat and Ferrari, the Fiat Dino was initially equipped with a 2L V6 engine with four full aluminium camshafts, derived from the Dino 196 engine developed by Ferrari. Designed by Pininfarina, the convertible was revealed to the public in November 1967 and the coupe version, designed by Bertone, few months later. Only 1,163 spyders 2000 were built between 1967 and 1969.
Sold new in France, as shown by its import plaque and registered on 19 November 1968, this particular vehicle was sold by Michel Seydoux during a Poulain-Lefur auction sale in 1996. A restoration by Vergotini was mentioned at that time and the car had 22,000 km on the clock. It has since been driven for 6,000 km and has been regularly serviced. The elegant bodywork is sound and is in a beautiful yellow colour. The black leatherette upholstery is in good order, except a seam which will need repair on the driver's seat. The mechanical part is in satisfactory working condition and gear shifts remain highly enjoyable, especially when going into highly symphonic revs. The front axle hinges and the gearbox support were replaced in 2008. Coming with its kit containing the jack and the original toolbox, this beautiful example is one of very few sold new in France and offers a mechanical performance closely linked to competition, which is without a doubt highly reliable. Try it, and you will love it!
Auction estimate: €80 000 / 100 000
