    A bit of a sister car to the well-known Dino Competizione is this "Berlinetta Speciale" . Introduced to the public on the Pininfarina Stand at the Paris Auto Show in 1965 and was designed by Aldo Brovarone. Today this highly original car is displayed in the Le-Mans Museum. Here are some pictures of the car which i took this summer during the 24H of Le-Mans. Hope you enjoy them!

    Like your Dino Competizione the Berlinetta Speciale (#0840) was build using a Dino 206S/SP chassis. Engine should be the 2 Litre V6.

    I've always been curious as to how the 206 Dino Berlinetta Speciale ended up in the Le Mans museum?

    Are they the outright owner of this car or is the car on-loan from an outside owner? I'm curious as to the chain of ownership of this incredible and significant showcar since it left Pininfarina.

    Sergio Pininfarina gave the 206 Dino Berlinetta Speciale as a present to his friend Baron de Lassée, the director of the Le Mans museum. Approx. 1980.

    I had a model of this fantastic looking car when I was a boy. It was blue iirc and made maybe by Corgi. Does it have an engine and run?

    It was my "Dream Car" in the sixties, and it still is today. As much as I love my two Dinos, they don't have the rawness of the Berlinetta Speciale. It was a design breakthrough, the likes of which we haven't seen since. Fred

    I can see from the the pictures posted that indeed it does have an engine or at least one for display. So, does it run and have there ever been any driving impressions published by anyone who has ever driven the Dino Berlinetta Speciale?

    Hmm. I know that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but the Berlinetta Speciale just doesn't grab me. I think the proportions are off, it looks ungainly and awkward, and I can see why it didn't make it into production in that form.
