    Not much info on it on dinoregister.com other than it was red in 1987, was in France, and is a Euro model.

    Hard to say -- dinoregister says it was red in 1987 but dont know if that is fact for sure. But, you could be right!

    Interesting color, that color looks better on a Lambo Miura.

    I believe that there was a purple dino in the movie cannonball run II but it may have been in the first one.

    I think it looks super.

    Love to have it parked next to the lime green glass 308.

    Used to be someone (Marsh?) selling a violet 246 in the FCA newsletter. Sounded flawless & origional rather then restored- but they wanted huge $ for - 150K if I recall.

    the car that general marsh is selling is the first production dino (or a protoype if you consider it as such). hence the high dollar amount. the car is in great condition and looking for a buyer. in, time, someone will be willing to pay the premium to have the "first".
