1967 Ferrari Dino 206 S

In February 1966, Ferrari debuted a new sports-racing car formulated for the FIA’s 2-litre Group 4 class, with the direct aim of winning over the numerous privateer teams that were largely running a variety of Porsche models. Dubbed the Dino 206 S, the car was powered by the further development of the 65 degree V-6 engine that had been conceived by Enzo’s son Dino Ferrari, prior to his death in June 1956.
By the end of the 1966 race season, the 206 S had proved its mettle, earning a 2nd place finish at the Targo Florio, 2nd and 3rd at the Nürburgring and a 6th place finish at Spa. Although the 206 S was originally slated for a homologation of 50 examples, labour problems prematurely interrupted production after only 18 cars had been assembled.

Chassis no. 032, holds a special place among Dinos as the final Drogo 206 S constructed. Out of the 18 examples, two were bodied by Pininfarina and three were coupes, making this the final of only 13 Drogo Spyders built.
Up for grabs soon at RM Sotheby's
