1966 Dino 206 GT
Widely regarded as one of the best-handling cars of its era, the Ferrari Dino’s mid-engine layout proved a radical leap in road car design when it was released in 1968. The Dino brand was established to create a more accessible Ferrari.
Other notable changes from the 206 were the body, now made of steel instead of aluminium, and a 60 mm (2.4 in) longer wheelbase than the 206. Three series of the Dino 246 GT were built, with differences in wheels, windshield wiper coverage, and engine ventilation. Dino 246 production numbered 2,295 GTs and 1,274 GTSs, for a total production run of 3,569.
