Real Enough for My Dollar 1966 Ferrari 206 SP Dino Replica

1966-ferrari-206
One of the rarest cars in the world that is the 1966 Ferrari 206 SP Dino is, as Ferrari only built a total of 18 of these sweet machines. Well, the rarer the car, they are likely to get more enthusiasts are to start replicating them, so seeing a replica of this famous car is to be expected. However, a high-quality replica is much less common.
A recent beauty popped up on eBay and it is likely one of the best recreations of a classic Ferrari we have ever seen. This replica 1966 Ferrari 206 SP Dino is about as close to 100% perfect as you can get. It has a custom-built alloy body with a 1,987 cc V-6 engine from a Ferrari Dino 206 GT. It may not crank out the 215 horsepower that the 206 SP’s 1,999 cc engine cranked, but the Dino 206 GT’s engine was rated at a respectable 176 horsepower (1967 model year). This mid-mounted engine’s power driving to the rear wheels is a magnesium gearbox, which is likely a five-speed configuration.
Being the party poopers that we are this replica should be examined closely and see what differences we could find between it and the original. Parked positioning of the wiper blade is the first thing that stands out. On the driver’s side of the vehicle the replica’s wiper blade is parked. On the original, the wiper blade parks almost in the middle of the windshield.
The cutout in front of the windshield is the second thing that is several inches too close to the windshield. The original 206 SP Dino’s cutout is at least 8 inches from the windshield and the replica’s cutout is about 3 inches from the windshield.
Lastly, the driver’s side window frame on the original is unpainted, whereas the replica’s is painted  red. All of that said, for a starting bid of “only” $89,100, this is not a bad deal, given an original 206 SP Dino fetched $3,267,000 at an auction in 2007.Automobile News
