The late 1960s was a high point in Italian style and a moment that secured the futures of Ferrari and Fiat. Ferrari wanted to race in the 1967 F2 category and needed 500 engines to meet competition rules, but it had no capacity. Fiat agreed to build the all-aluminum V-6 2.0-liter engine, re-engineered by Aurelio Lampredi and producing 180 brake horsepower. The firm needed a halo car to lure aspirational buyers, and the result was the Fiat Dino Coupe.
Commissioned from Bertone, the sleek four-seater was created by legendary stylist Giorgetto Giugiaro. Launched at the 1967 Geneva Motor Show, it featured a five-speed gearbox, a limited-slip differential and four-wheel disc brakes. Gianni Agnelli, the industrial magnate, was among the wealthy owners and the model famously featured in 1969 film The Italian Job.
In according with all original Fiat Classiche documentation this stunning 1968 Dino was product in April 1968 and delivery from new in sud Italian Ragusa, from June 1969 it has spent its entire life in Rome, and still bears its original plate of the time (very dry climate) until today it has arrived with us, the car maintains a known history from new and continuous always in Italy keeping original plates and booklets from the 60s
The integrity of the car convinced us to carry out of a no-expense-spared ground-up restoration. Every effort was made to make this one of the finest 1968 Dino Coupes in existence. The car was completely disassembled, with the body stripped and repainted in a suitable Medium Blue, while the interior in sky black was redone with the original factory fabric, all the mechanical and electrical parts have been overhauled to guarantee perfect efficiency.
Like all our cars, the entire restoration process is documented by an invoice and a photographic book that documents all the processing steps. The car will be completed by autumn 2023.
Exceptional in every way, this superb 1968 Fiat Dino Coupe is perfect for the discriminating collector who appreciates both quality and drivability. This example presents a rare opportunity to own one of the very best.
