The Rolling Stone's legendary rocker owned and drove this car for almost 15 years.
Dubbed the “ultimate Dino” by auction house Coys, the 1972 Ferrari Dino 246GT that will go under the hammer next week was purchased by Rolling Stones star Keith Richards in California in February 1972. He bought it to the UK in 1975 and owned it until 1986. In those fourteen years, Richards managed to rack up over 25,000 miles. It later spent time in a prestigious Japanese collection. Finished in Argento silver with a black leather interior and period-correct Cromodoro alloys, the mid-engined Dino is powered by a 2.4-liter V6.
As Coys Managing Partner, Chris Routledge, says "A Dino offered at no reserve is rare enough in itself and would make this is a highly desirable and collectible item in its own right, but when one adds to this proven long-term ownership by rock and roll aristocracy, the Keith Richards's car has to be the ultimate Dino and will surely give any car collector and rock enthusiast a great 'Satisfaction'!” *Sigh* The rare car will be sold at no reserve at Coys' auction in Monaco on 9 May.
