Dino 246 GTB, GTS
Ferrari's small car was given the brand name 'Dino' after his dead son Alfredino Ferrari, and although racing cars had already carried this name, the road-going models were first aired in 1965. The 1965 Paris Salon exhibited a Dino 206 S Speciale by Aldo Brovarone based around the 1987cc V6 Dino engine and built on a racing Dino chassis. By the time of the Turin Salon in 1966 this car had been developed into the Dino Berlinetta GT. Further development led to the launch of the Dino 206 GT at turin in 1967 and production started in 1968 mostly by Fiat. The 2418cc 246 GT was launched in 1969, gaining 60mm in its wheelbase and losing many of its aluminium panels in favour of cheaper steel. The Dino design is attributed to Leonardo Fioravanti. Originally conceived as a homologation vehicle for its V6 engine, the 206 GT sold 152 copies, and the 246 sold 3761 (GT and Spiders). The Spyder (GTS) was launched in 1971, and the Dino 246 replaced by the Dino 308 in 1974.
