Fiat Dino 2000 Spider – Rare first series, one of 200 with aluminium dashboard – Restored

The car is currently being reassembled in our workshop – Non contractual photos

In 1965, for the competition requirements, Enzo Ferrari needed to build 500 series cars equipped with a V6: these were the FIA regulations of the period for the Formula 2 championship. Ferrari had the idea to use the V6 from the Dino 206 GT but, as he knew he could not reach this production goal alone, he went to Fiat to propose the project of a high standard car that could allow him to homologate his engine in competition. This is how the Fiat Dino 2000 Spider was born, introduced during the Torino motoshow in November 1966, and designed by Pininfarina. Ferrari provided the engines, 2.0L V6s that also equipped the Dino 206 GT. They were then reworked at Fiat by Aurelio Lampredi (ex-Ferrari engine builder) and produced 160 hp.

This historical link with competition and with the Dino 206 GT make the Fiat Dino 2000 Spider an inescapable car! Our car is all the more important that it is the chassis 135AS 0000202. It is not only one of the 500 first exemplars made to homologate the engine in competition, but it is also one of the 200 first cars built, the only series with the aluminium dashboard! Our car just ended a complete restauration and is currently being reassembled in our workshop. Its restauration comes with a complete set of photos and will be delivered to its future owner with an appraisal value.
