Luxurious Driving with Ferrari 246 Dino If you hear about Ferrari may be in your imagine is car and lux. Sure, there are far more expensive Ferraris (if one of the 39 250GTOs, made in 1963-’64, should come to market – and you probably won’t know about it – it will change hands for upwards of £5 million) and cheaper ones too. Ferrari is one of leading luxury car market in the world. See the wedgier, 1976-on 308GTB as a usable car with similar appeal to the Dino, from around £20,000.

Many people who dream to get this car and owning one is a boys' dream come true. And if you look after it properly you'll have an investment with a serious chance of appreciating in value. Get the coupe – which has that fantastic curved rear double-window within the flying buttresses – rather than the uncomfortable-looking GTS with removable roof panel (and no, you can’t call that one a Targa: Porsche owns the name). You’ll never tire of snick- clacking around that famous open gear-gate either. The Ferrari Dino is one of the most impressive Ferrari's ever produced. Both Motor Trend and Forza magazines picked the Ferrari Dino as one of their top 10 favorite cars ever made.

He says: “Budget £850-1500 a year to look after a good car – a 12,000-mile service includes checking the timing chains and setting the valve clearances.” The downsides?
