An exceptionally rare 1967 Ferrari Dino 206 S will be offered for sale at an RM Sotheby’s sealed auction later this month.
With only 18 examples ever made, this model is just one of 13 Drogo Spiders. The Dino 206 S first saw the light of day in 1966, with Ferrari creating it to partake in the FIA’s 2.0-liter Group 4 class. The Prancing Horse had hoped to poach customers from Porsche, the favorite of privateer teams at the time.
The V6 engine, a development of Dino Ferrari’s (Enzo’s late son who later had a car named after him), provided superb performance on the track, and by the end of the 1966 racing season, the Dino 206 S had proved its worth. It finished in 2nd position at the Targa Florio, 2nd and 3rd at the Nurburgring, and 6th at Spa.
Ferrari originally had plans to build 50 examples, but problems forced the automaker to cap production at just 18.
