Looking for my retirement toy and would love to own a 246GT. One the loveliest cars ever built and a joy to drive, albeit rather slow in a straight line. My Dad had a 206GT when we lived in Italy 1971-4. I have owned mid-engine V-8 Ferrari's, V-6 Maserati Merak, and many Jaguar's. I kind of hoped the Dino's would come down in price but they haven't and I have moved on because technology has moved on. Comparisons made in other comments (Fiesta, Civic, etc.) are silly and irrelevant. Hell my son's '92 MR2 Turbo blows the doors off a 206/246 Dino but that isn't the point.

What I have moved on to is buying a 2011-2014 Lotus Evora S that I expect be able to buy for $35K - $50K. Mid-engine 345HP RELIABLE V-6 and a better car in every respect than a Dino except maybe in the subjective category of looks. As it stands today I would buy the Evora over a Dino even if the prices were the same but at $250K to $400K for the Dino it isn't even a consideration.

dino was build to be slower than usual ferrari. look at the numbers. a V6 with less than 200 horsepower. that is very good car and engine but fast and cool to, it makes very good road driving and cornering.

427..... how on earth is the fact that a modern car is faster embarrasing? The Dino is over 35 years old and in its day it was a fast car..... the comparison with a modern car is meaningless. You may as well compare what somebody earned 35 years ago to today..... is $25k in 1973 compared to say $50k now embarrasing? Go and look at some of the other cars of similar age and power.... you wont find many that were much quicker than the fezza.

I have added some pictures of that slow oldtimer taken around the corner of my home... it is owned by a Ferrari dealer in Frankfurt Germany and was in my town for a oldtimer meeting.
Who cares if small cars of today are faster... during their time cars like the Dino, 300SL, E-Type were the dream of every petrol head... even today this car looks stunning in realty

Max, it was beaten by a Camry. No matter how fast it was, it's embarrasing.
