Ferrari Dino 296 S
Featuring a single overhead camshaft per cylinder bank, the 196 S was driven by Collins first time out at Goodwood.
The engine was modified to a single overhead camshaft V6 60° unit for endurance races in 1959 and 1960.
A 2.4 litre version was also produced in 1960, the 246 S. The 296 S was also given a V6 engine, with an overall displacement of 1983.72 cm3.
All three vehicles were designed by Scaglietti and Fantuzzi.
The above car pictured was looked after for many years and campaigned by SBR in 2010 at the Goodwood revival where it has two podium finishes. Click here for some more shots of the car at our workshops
