Year of Release: 1986

The Ferrari 246 F1 was built for the Formula One World Championship of 1958. It was not only the first V6-engined car to win a Formula One Grand Prix, the French Grand Prix at Reims in 1958 driven by Mike Hawthorn, it was also the last front-engined car to win a Formula One Grand Prix. This occurred at the 1960 Italian Grand Prix at Monza, the car driven by Phil Hill; the major British teams having boycotted the race.

Matchbox released a small range of classic racing cars in 1986, a 1930 Bentley, a Maserati 250, a 1935 ERA a 1932 Type 52 Bugatti and this Ferrari 246 Dino. The cars were released to support a plan that Models of Yesteryear would sponsor classic car racing, an idea which was not carried through due to cost. There are no significant variations to this car.

Boxes: All releases are in Type J boxes.
