About the Ferrari Dino (1968-1973)
Ferrari Dino 246 GT (1969-1973)
The Dino was the first rear-engined Ferrari production sportscar.
It was produced in two versions: the 206 GT (1968-1969) – powered by a 2.0 liter engine with 180-hp – and its evolution, the 246 GT, which was produced from 1969 to 1973.
The 246 GT was powered by a 2.4 liter V6 engine delivering 195hp.
The body was designed by Aldo Brovarone (Pininfarina) and the engine had been originally developed by Enzo Ferrari’s son Dino, who had died in 1956.
Among the technical highlights were light-weight aluminium body, full independent suspension, and four disc brakes.
From 1972 a GTS open-top version was also included in the production range.
Commonly referred to as "baby Ferrari", the Dino was produced in 3,500 units until 1973, when it was replaced by the 308 GT4 designed by Bertone.
