During the 1960s, Ferrari began producing smaller-capacity sports racing cars and named them 'Dino'. They were even sanctioned and entered as a separate entity to events such as Le Mans.

The Dino 246 GT was an evolution of the Dino 206 GT, with a larger V6 engine and a wheelbase lengthened by 60 mm. Apart from the longer body, the design was virtually identical to the 206, with just a longer engine cover and a repositioned fuel cap. Between 1969 and 1974 a total of 2639 Dino 246 GT models were produced which made the Dino 246 the first Ferrari model produced in high numbers. When production stopped in 1973-74 demand was still high.

In 1971, German drivers Joachim Komusin and Siegfried Mullers entered one in the International Racing Club's 246 for the 1000 kilometers of Nnrburgring. Wearing number 83, they finished a respectable 26th overall and 5th in class. A 1:18th model with great history behind its inspiration!
