Ferrari Dino… Beauty and the (really ugly) beast

Thursday, December 15th, 2011

Now clearly I was named after an iconic Italian sportscar (or maybe I was named after a cartoon dinosaur) so I have a soft spot for the Ferrari Dino. To some it was never a real Ferrari (as it didn’t have a V12 engine), to others it was the quintessential 60’s playboy toy. The Dino is often in the top 10 list of the most beautiful cars of all time, and for good reason. Styled by the legendary Pininfarina and bearing the name of Enzo Ferrari’s son Alfreda ‘Dino’ Ferrari, it had Ferrari oozing out of it’s pores.

But as the post title says, it had an ugly update. Something that many car manufacturers seem to do at some point. Here are a few off the top of my head to prove the point…

There’s probably plenty more out there. Point being, don’t buy me the Ferrari Dino 308 for Christmas, it’s the Dino 246GT all the way baby!
