Ferrari adhered to my favorite decree:
“When in doubt, build it stout, with materials you know about”
The wall thickness of that oval chassis tubing is quite thick and there’s a substantial amount used to build that platform, not including the rest of the support structure for the body work and suspension. Also, the 246’s body was mostly steel nearly doubling the weight over the 206’s alloy panels.
It all adds up and I’m not surprised it’s pushing close to that amount. I keep meaning to bring my GT4 down to the local truck weigh station and getting a certified weight for the car. I would bet it’d tip over 3K lbs.

Doug, you mention the fascination with the Dino 246?
