I don't believe the Ferrari V4 ever made it into production, I think it was simply a design study for the Ferrari museum. Very sexy, though.
RM Auctions reports that they broke 12 world records today, by an average of 15%. Bloody Nora... the European collector car market is exploding. However, it's going too fast and that can only mean there's going to be a severe correction down the line, so it's a good time to be very cautious. I will say this though, I think the days of buying relatively inexpensive Italian and German midrange classics is over.
That aside, we found a Euro-spec `67 Dino 206 GT (never US titled) with an older restoration in Ohio for a very reasonable price, even by last year's values, and I'm buying it. My guys are going up to get it on Monday. IMO, it's one of the 5 most beautiful production cars ever made.
I had heard that design study was done by an Israeli who initially envisioned the Enzo engine in it
The 206, still the epitome of what a mid engined Ferrari should look like. My god, not an out of place line on her anywhere. Perhaps the one car on earth that could make an E-Type look in the mirror and doubt it's own sex appeal.
