Ferrari introduced the Dino series of 2-seater, mid-engine cars in 1968 as a smaller and more affordable version of the companys massively popular sports cars. Named after Enzo Ferraris deceased son Alfredino, it was the first road models made by Ferrari to be fitted with the V6 engine. The car had a striking aerodynamic body design characterized by the absence of sharp lines. The Ferrari Dino 246 GT was the second Dino model, introduced in 1969 as a slightly heavier and faster evolution of the original 206 GT. The 1974 Ferrari Dino 246 GT was powered by the same 2.4L DOHC V6 engine of the first generation, which had undergone many modifications. These engine, gearbox and bodywork improvements made the car faster, more powerful and more comfortable. The reworked engine could produce a maximum power of 195 hp at 7,600 rpm. 1974 Ferrari Dino 246 GT Buyers Guide
Once considered not worthy enough to be a true Ferrari (simply because it didnt have the V12 engine), the Dino is one of those rare classic cars that are far more popular today than they were at the time of their production. The 1974 Ferrari Dino 246 GT has a top speed of 146 mph and an initial acceleration of 0-to-60 mph in less than 7 seconds. Like all Dinos, it comes without Ferraris embossed prancing horse emblem, as Enzo requested.
