My name is Ginevra, born in 1970, identified as chassis #00754. Sent through the stripping-off process in Bacchelli & Villa, every inch of me is scrutinized, and all my details are revealed.

1970 Ferrari Dino 246 GT in Restoration

My siblings and I proudly bear the name in honor of Enzo Ferrari’s son Alfredo (nicknamed Alfredino, or Dino). Alfredo, a talented engineer, sadly passed away in 1956 at the age of 24 while working on Ferrari’s V6 racing engine. 

With a larger V6 engine and an extended body, we made our debut at the Turin Show in 1969, evolving from the Dino 206 GT - Ferrari’s first mid-engine road car, featuring a six-cylinder engine. Despite initially lacking the Ferrari badge, our compact and powerful V6 engines delivered delightful drives, sweet handling, and a perfect symphony of sounds. Today, we are rightfully celebrated as among Ferrari’s most significant and beautiful cars.

Carrying all this history and affection, the restoration team at Bacchelli & Villa, driven by a profound respect for my originality, strives to salvage as many authentic body parts as possible.

Simultaneously, expert mechanics, with a long-standing collaboration with Bacchelli & Villa, meticulously restore my engine. I can’t wait to roar on the road again with my mid-engine excellence.

They're going the extra mile to keep things authentic, even in terms of color. The team leaves no stone unturned in researching the original body color, Argento “106 - E - 1”, and the exact shade of the interior leather, “Pelle Celeste,” aiming to resurrect the colors that define me.

Amidst this meticulous process, I feel a sense of joy.
