The 246 Dinos were the first Ferraris to receive pressed steel body panels that were pressed at the Pininfarina factory in Turin. Scaglietti assembled the bodies in Modena, before being transported to the Ferrari factory for mechanical assembly. The Dinos rode on alloy rims and rather than the three-pointed central wing nut Cromodoras, 246 GTs featured Campagnolo rims with a circular hub on which the Dino logo was reproduced.
The American market was introduced to the 246 GTS in 1972 which featured a removable targa room and built exclusively for the United States market. Ferrari produced approximately 1,200 units.
Jack May and Rick Cline drove this Ferrari Dino to a world record in the Cannonball Sea-to-Shining Sea Memorial Trophy Dash getting from New York City to Los Angeles in 35 hours and 53 minutes on April 23 - 25, 1975.
