    Fabulous Ferrari 206 S Dino in full detail and RM Monaco preview ...

    In February of 1966, Ferrari launched its new racing cars for the coming season. Among them was this fabulously beautiful 206 S Dino Spyder. A scaled down version of the 330 P3 also launched that day, it was intended to compete in the Group 4 GT class against the latest Porsches. Unfortunately labour unrests prevented the required 50 cars to be produced, so the little Dino was never homologated. Eventually only 18 were built, and although they were not quite as successful on the track as their contemporaries, they are highly sought after today. Many have been in the same collection for many, many years. Our article features an 18-shot gallery of two examples. The first will be offered later this week at RM Auctions' Monaco sale and has a hefty estimate of EUR 2.2 - 2.8 Euro.
    The beautiful Ferrari is just one of many highlights of the sale, which kicks off with an immaculate collection of Ducatis, which includes the MotoGP bike raced last year by Valentino Rossi. Other stars include the unique Ferrari 308 GT4 LM, an immaculate Alfa Romeo 33/2 Daytona, one of just four Williams FW06s and direct from Peugeot, one of the Le Mans winning 908 HDi FAPs. A full list of the lots can be found here. As part of our Monaco Historic Grand Prix coverage, we will also drop by RM, so you can expect a closer look at these fabulous machines right after the event.
    Following the company's withdrawal from endurance racing, Peugeot is now focusing most of its attention on rallying and the 208 R2 is the latest result of that shift in attention. Built to compete in national and international rallies, the first example boasts classic Peugeot colours and will be campaigned in the Tour de Corse this coming weekend.

    If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.

    I would have thought that 166 Inter would be worth more as it is one of the first Ferrari's built.

    Why is it so relatively inexpensive?

    Does Jim own the earliest known surviving Ferrari?
