    Very nice! 275 is quite cool, too ;)

    It really shows how the Dino and 275GTB share the most emotional design language taken from the Ferrari Comp cars of the 60’s Enzo era!

    The 275GTB is a fine looking lady but compared to the dino, in my opinion, comes second best.

    Interesting crackle finish on the airbox - did 246 LME cars have crackle finish ?

    Is that a Stratos in the background?

    Funny you should say that. I was thinking very much the same. I have to admit, however, that, having never driven a 275, I am probably more than a little bit biased.

    As beautiful as the Dino is, for me the 275GTB is the quintessential Ferrari shape....simultaneously elegant, delicate and brutal.

    I love the 275GTB, especially a short nose! This is a long nose but still amazing!

    From the hood it appears to be a 4cam.

    I agree. The short nose’s unique wheels are perfect as well.

    The 275 represented the traditional front engined V12 Ferrari whereas the Dino was the future chocked full of new innovation with its transverse mid-engine compact V6, aerodynamic body design, light and nimble with fantastic handling. The swooping back window coupled with drop dead gorgeous styling is breathtaking! I never tire of looking at it!

    And rather good value compared to a 275 (today's prices).;)

    Exactly. That's what sets the Dino apart from other Ferraris of that era. As the response to the argument that a Dino is not a Ferrari (which is a load of old ********* as it happens, but that's by the by), "it's better than a Ferrari".:)

    That has always been the case but the gap in values has narrowed. The 275 market has softened considerably while prices for a really good Dino are relatively firm. My 2 cents.

    Newly rebuilt engine and gearbox.
    Still the most beautiful Ferrari in my view. Loved the Dino in ‘The Persuaders’ back in the 1970’s with Tony Curtis and Roger Moore

    Beautiful combo! Looks like a personal statement with solid slate grey paint and 16” Cromos. Looks like he got tired of the wipers colliding and removed the one on the cable! Any other photos of this Dino?

    My favorite car, but unfortunately I don't comfortably fit. I enjoyed the process though.
