Being the first Ferrari to cross our workshop threshold back in the late 60s, the newly-released Dino quickly became a favourite that has rarely been absent from our showroom ever since. We love how it looks, we love how it drives, and we’re confident that there’s not much we don’t know about this little icon of a car.
Ferrari has been manufacturing mid-engined sports cars for the best part of 50 years, all of which can all be traced back to one model - the Dino. It was named after Enzo Ferrari's son, Alfredino - who had spearheaded Ferrari's development of the Dino V6 engine for racing. The marque was launched with the Ferrari Dino 206 GT in 1968 with a lightweight aluminium body and aluminium block 2.0-litre Fiat-built V6 engine, mounted transversely behind the driver.
In 1970, the Dino 246 GT arrived. The aluminium used in its predecessor was replaced 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. In total, just 235 right-hand-drive Dino 246 GTS models were imported to the UK between 1972 and 1974.
Having proven to be one of the most successful automobiles built by Ferrari, the iconic Dino paved the way for the innovative mid-engined marques, with a design legacy that continues to provide inspiration to modern Ferrari.
