    246 GTS, S/N 07362 (1973). RHD. White with black interior. Estimate $390,000 to $450,000. Purchased in December 2000 from the estate of BRDC member the late Mike Cornwell (its owner since 1975). Cornwell had the Dino converted to flares soon after he bought the car in the 1970s, so in the interests of keeping true to its history it was decided to retain those during restoration as they had been on the car for the best part of its life. The owner’s restoration took three years and 5,000 man-hours to complete and was carried out between 2017 and 2020. The leather interior trim was supplied by Lupi. The engine is fully rebuilt and balanced with Cosworth high-compression pistons and has only been run and tuned on the testbed.
