Ferrari has been manufacturing mid-engined sports cars for the best part of 50 years, and all of which can all be traced back to one model - the Dino. The Dino marque was intended to apply to all Ferrari-built cars that did not use a V12 engine. It was named after Enzo Ferrari's son, Alfredo - or Alfredino - who had spearheaded Ferrari's development of the Dino V6 engine for racing. The marque was launched with the Ferrari Dino 206 GT, which used a lightweight aluminium body and an aluminium block 2.0-litre Fiat-built V6 mounted transversely behind the driver.
In 1969, the Dino 246 GT arrived, replacing the expensive aluminium used in its predecessor with a cast iron block 2.4-litre V6 and steel body panels. The 246 GTS first appeared at the 1972 Geneva motor show, with a black targa roof panel that could be easily removed and stowed behind the driver. In total, just 228 right-hand-drive Dino 246 GTS models were imported to the UK between 1972 and 1974.
