KIETH RICHARDS FERRARI DINO TO HIT AUCTION BLOCK
Legendary rocker and Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards’s 1972 Ferrari Dino 246GT was recently auctioned by Coys Auciton House. Richards purchased the Dino 246GT in 1972, brought it to the United Kingdom in 1975 and drove it until 1986. In 14 years of ownership, Richards managed to put a total of 25,000 miles on this silver Ferrari. After Richards’s ownership, the Dino 264GT made its way into a private Japanese collection. Finished in Argento silver with a black leather interior and Cromodoro alloys, the mid-engine Dino is powered by a 2.4-liter V6.
Coys Managing Partner, Chris Routledge, says “A Dino offered at no reserve is rare enough in itself and would make this is a highly desirable and collectible item in its own right, but when one adds to this proven long-term ownership by rock and roll aristocracy, the Keith Richards’s car has to be the ultimate Dino and will surely give any car collector and rock enthusiast a great “Satisfaction”!
