1968 Ferrari Dino 206 GT

How does one describe a Dino206 GT? Where does one start? Is it the car’s exclusivity? The fact that between 1967-1969 only 152 were built? The near perfect proportions? The aluminium bodywork? Or even the fantastic 65 degree V6 Ferrari engine? Let’s start at the beginning.

Enzo Ferrari wanted to market a smaller, cheaper car to rival the Porsche 911. His son Alfredo, Dino for intimates, had recently died. Alfredo was a Ferrari engineer who mainly concentrated on developing smaller racing engines, like the F2 2.0 V6 engine. To commemorate his son and not to interfere with the V12 Ferrari’s, he decided to give the small car the Dino name. To reduce the risk of reputation damage it was decided to market the car under its own Dino brand. Our car is one of the 152 Dino 206 GT’s and has truly been restored in fantastic fashion. In the past Nico Aaldering commissioned a full “Nut&Bolt” restoration. Everything was done to bring this Dino 206 GT back to the highest level. The chassis and body were taken back to bare metal and re-sprayed in the original colour “Bianco Polo Park”. As one might expect with a top-level restoration the car’s condition is second to none. The car has fine, straight and correctly aligned body panels. Underneath the car is in perfect condition. The quality of the white uni-lacquer is perfect and lends a splendid understated aura. One look and you realise that this Dino 206 GT has been thoroughly restored with quality exuding from every pore. The 14 inch Cromodora wheels suit the car perfectly.

Gallery Aaldering
Gallery Aaldering is a family owned business since 1975. Founder Nico Aaldering and his son Nick are responsible for operational and executive management. The company has been in Brummen since 1987 and started on the location where they currently have their second workshop and detailing shop. Nico started very small, with only three employees. People who still work for the company today. The company grew rapidly and established a name for itself based on quality. In the nineties it was time for expansions after many years of selling Alfa Romeo, then Italian cars later on followed by British cars as well. At the end of 2000 Gallery Aaldering moved to the current premises at the Arnhemsestraat in Brummen. This showroom was build according to Nico's idea and sketches and has a Neoclassical style to match the classic cars inside. During this time Nick entered the company after finishing his studies and working for different automotive companies. Gallery Aaldering expanded and gained momentum with the decades of experience offered by Nico and the bright new ideas and progressive vision offered by Nick. The collection became more diverse with an important move upwards to higher segments. Gallery Aaldering has grown to become one of the largest classic car dealers in Europe. There are about 350 classic cars on display on four floors with a Grand Café and special rooms for business meetings. As a family owned business Gallery Aaldering is proud of its history and traditions, but the future is just as important. At the heart of this all is the passion for classic automobiles. For that reason they participate in the most impressive classic car rally in the world, the Mille Miglia. A deeply rooted love for cars. You will find this in both their genes and the identity of this family owned business.
