Once upon a time, legendary motorsport pioneer Enzo Ferrari had a son. His son, Alfredo “Dino” Ferrari sometimes clashed with his father over their vision for the future of the company. The 1972 Ferrari Dino 246 GTS is one of Alfredo’s masterpieces.

To make a long story short, Enzo was quite fond of the 12 cylinder engine while Dino insisted using smaller displacement V6 designs could yield successful results. To be fair, and not to take sides, they were both correct to be stubborn in their ways. The end result is a Ferrari stable full of horses for any occasion. 

As for the ‘72 246 GTS, this chassis features iconic ’70s Ferrari styling by coachbuilder Scaglietti. It features Dino’s beloved V6 design, the same engine that finally qualified Ferrari for Formula Two racing. By 1972, Ferrari made several improvements and upgrades to bring the V6 engine’s output up to 195 horsepower.
