Eight Dinos, each in a different factory-original colour, will be on display at the Honourable Artillery Company in central London on 10-11 June.
Approximately 100 mouth-watering cars, classic and modern, will draw crowds at the London Concours, but this privately owned collection will be hard to miss.
On show will be Dinos finished in Blu Dino, Rosso Chiaro red, Grigio Ferro grey, Nero black and Nuovo Giallo yellow, plus three more shades, ensuring a vibrant display.
And one of the eight is particularly special, being one of the five UK-delivered ‘Chairs and Flares’ versions, with enlarged wheelarches and ‘Daytona’ seats.
“Before the Dino, Ferrari was building enormously powerful V12-engined cars in exceedingly small numbers. It’s not an overstatement to say the business was transformed by the popularity of this nimble, beautifully balanced and lightweight sports car,” said Andrew Evans, London Concours Director.
“The Dino set a template for a whole range of mid-engined Ferrari models that continues to this day, and includes legends like the 355, 430 and even the latest F8 Tributo.
“It’s hard to pick just one Maranello icon to honour at London Concours this year, but our car selection committee is in total agreement; the Dino deserves time in the spotlight, and we’re more than happy to oblige.”
