One of 51 examples delivered new to Belgium, this Dino boasts low ownership including two long term owners spanning almost four decades, the latter of which is Jacques Swaters. Mr. Swaters not only fought the Germans on the battlefield during the Second World War, but also on the track, winning the Berlin Grand Prix in 1953. He ran the famous Belgian race team Ecurie Francorchamps as well as one of Ferrari’s most successful dealerships, Garage Francorchamps. Swaters and Enzo Ferrari were also great admirers of one another, allowing Swaters exclusive opportunities to purchase rare prototype cars from the factory, meaning he accrued an extremely refined Ferrari collection in which this Dino resided for over 20 years.
Its most recent owner who acquired the car in 2015 is from Formula One royalty, a gentleman whose prerogative at the time was to collate a collection of the best examples of the most iconic road going Ferraris. During his ownership the Dino has been serviced solely by official Ferrari dealers and was subject to a gearbox rebuild and engine works in 2021, since which it has only covered 250 km.
A very original example that boasts a full matching number status, including its chassis, engine, gearbox and body, as confirmed by its Ferrari Classiche ‘Red Book’ certification.
This Dino is located, registered and taxes paid in Switzerland.
