Keith Richards' Ferrari Dino Is For Sale

Somehow, in between the seemingly endless stream of drugs and groupies, Keith Richards managed to find time to be a legitimate car guy. What you're looking at is his personal 1972 Ferrari Dino 246GT, and it's up for sale at Coys of Kenington's Monaco auction.

Richards absolutely loved this car, and even shipped it over to England so he could keep driving it. He eventually sold it after 14 years, and it has been kept in a Japanese collection ever since.

Not everyone shared Richards' passion though. Dinos were kind of the red headed stepchild of Ferrari. They were designed by and then named after Enzo's son, who died before they saw production. Still, Enzo actually hated the cars, since they relied on agility more than power, with its 175 hp V6, and they almost didn't carry the name Ferrari at all.

This one only has 28,000 miles on the odometer, which stands as testament to how babied this car has been — unlike the nearly identical car that fellow rocker Keith Moon bought, then promptly handed the keys to some young admirers. You can see the results of that lapse in judgment in this photo.


Aaron Miller is the Rides editor for Supercompressor. He probably can't party as hard as Keith, either Richards or Moon, but he sure likes their choice of car.
