'71 Fiat Dino Coupe

It's not often you see one of these, particularly in such beautiful condition. It may irritate the purists with its lack of bumpers and its Mondial wheels, but I've fallen a little in love with the way it looks. I can only imagine how glorious it sounds.

Available from Percival Motor Company, here's what they say about it:

Fiat Dino Coupe, red, black interior. Two owners since being imported from Italy in 1990. The last keeper acquired the car in 2006 and embarked on a thorough restoration costing over 30,000. Medway Jaguar's premium car specialist and The Ferrari Centre have carried out extensive works which is detailed in numerous invoices. The engine was rebuilt by Mike Elliott some years ago and, according to the file, he fitted Stratos camshafts during the build. it received a light overhaul a thousand miles ago as did the gearbox. The clutch was replaced in 2007. The electronic ignition unit was replaced and the wiring overhauled. The carburettors have been rebuilt and the engine has been correctly set up. A new alloy petrol tank, stainless steel exhaust and an alloy radiator have been fitted. The suspension, brakes and steering have all been restored. The bodywork received a complete bare metal respray. This beautiful car has been mildly uprated during the restoration. The bumpers have been removed, and the car slightly lowered. Black alloy wheels and a 308 performance brake kit from Superformance have been added along a complete re-trim in black leather with red piping. The headlining was re-trimmed in alcantara and red seat belts front and rear complete the picture. A Thatcham Category 1 alarm with central locking is fitted along with a C.D. player. The car also has an iPod connection. A very special car which drives beautifully. £24,995
