In the mid-1960s, Ferrari needed a 2.0-litre production-based engine for the new Formula 2 and conceived the mid-engined Dino to provide the necessary basis. Since the late 1950s, Ferrari's V6-engined sports-racers had used the Dino name, after Enzo Ferrari's late son, Alfredino, who had died in 1956, and this was duly applied to the new road car. Indeed, at this time it was intended that it would be the first of an entirely separate marque. The new V6 power unit would prove as successful on the racetrack as in the showroom: Derek Bell and Ernesto Brambilla both winning races in the European Championship, while Andrea de Adamich triumphed in the 1968 Argentine Temporada series. However, faced with the daunting task of building 500 units per annum to meet the FIA's homologation requirements, Ferrari turned to FIAT for assistance, the resulting agreement for the latter to build the Dino's four-cam V6 engine leading to a spin-off model for FIAT. Launched in Pininfarina-bodied two-seater Spider form at the 1966 Turin Show, the FIAT Dino carried its 2.0-litre, 160bhp engine ahead of the driver in a conventional manner, and was notable as the first FIAT to employ four overhead camshafts and a limited-slip differential as standard. Steel bodied, the newcomer employed a FIAT five-speed gearbox and featured independent front suspension by means of wishbones and coil springs, a live rear axle, and disc brakes all round.A longer-wheelbase 2+2 Coupé model with Giorgetto Giugiaro-designed Bertone coachwork appeared the following year at the Geneva Salon, however, it is the Spiders, both in 2.0 and 2.4-litre guise, that have become most sought after amongst collectors. In the words of Sports Car Market: "The Spider is one of the prettiest designs to emerge from Pininfarina's studio in the 1960s…. and even accelerating in top gear from low revs, there's a seamless delivery of power." A mere 1,133 spiders were originally built, but far fewer are left in existence today.This 1967 FIAT Dino Spider was purchased new in Italy as a copy of its Italian Logbook confirms. The last known Italian owner was a Mr Aroldo Nasi who sold the vehicle in 1988 to Henry Pearman of Eagle Racing who subsequently sold it to Mr P.A. Brigstock. After changing hands twice more, the Dino was exported to Ireland, where the current Italian owner took possession in 1994. A three year, bare-metal restoration was commissioned by our vendor, the quality of which didn’t go unnoticed after its debut at Ireland’s premier Classic Car Show where it was awarded “Best in Show”. Since then he has lovingly maintained and stored his pride and joy with great care. Recent major works include an engine refresh at 63,000km by respected Ferrari technician, Vincent Mezzullo, and a complete differential rebuild costing over €5,000. This particular example comes with the rare and very useable Pininfarina hard top which fits neatly over the soft top, allowing for quick and easy installation. It was also specified with leather seats and comes with the desirable wood-rimmed Nardi steering wheel. With the car is a large history file with mileage records which run consecutively from 1988, suggesting that the indicated mileage may well be correct (although not substantiated).Buyers should note that it was only the 2-litre Dino models that had aluminium blocks, a weight saving that resulted in slightly more nimble handling compared to its 2.4-litre sibling. Consequently, the lower capacity cars were quite competitive in their class and were raced extensively in period, this provenance opening the door for a number of Historic events including the Le Mans Classic, 1,000 Kilometres of Monza, and the Targa Florio. This is a car that can genuinely be used for all occasions, be it races, rallies, tours or Concours, the car is welcomed by event organisers and admiring crowds wherever it goes. Presented in fabulous condition, this represents a wonderful and rare opportunity to purchase a superb example of one of Pininfarina's loveliest designs which, pleasingly, carries the legendary name 'Dino'.
