That 1972, Rollingstones released one of its best albums – “Exile on Main Street”, and from the Ferrari drive this model Dino came out, which arrived in the same year in the garage of Keith Richards.
The climb to the top of the list and the platinum edition of their records many rock stars celebrated by buying expensive supersport cars, and some of them, such as Nick Mason from Pink Floyd or Jay Kay from Jamiroquai, have become passionate automotive collectors.
Guitarist Keith Richards from Rollingstone bought the Ferrari Dino 246 GT in 1972. Unlike some other owners who would drive such a car only occasionally, Richards did not save it.
Instead of leaving it to collect dust in the garage, the famous guitarist used it intensively during the seventies when his band toured Europe.
The Ferrari Dino 246 GT was owned by a British guitarist over a decade and a half before it was purchased by a Japanese collector.
He owned the car until 2014, in order to be sold to another musician at the Monaco auction the same year – Liam Howlett from The Prodigy.
Howlett owned it for a couple of years, after which he sold it to the current owner who decided to offer it at auction and tried to earn on this car.
Dino is painted in silver and has about 50,000 miles left behind, some 40,000 of which have been crossed by Keith Richardss in the 1970s and 1980s.
The engine of the car was restored a few years ago, and Bonhams expects it reaches a price of £300,000 and £400,000.
