Ferrari Dino 246 GTS
Ferrari subsequently built a prototype six-cylinder production model, the Dino 206S, which was unveiled at Paris in 1965, followed by the Dino Berlinetta GT at Turin the following year. It was not only Ferrari’s first mid-engine production car, but also marked the debut of a new Ferrari-based Dino brand that was entirely devoid of Ferrari badging. In 1969, the Dino received a larger and more powerful 2,418 cc engine, and its reported 146 mph top speed and race-inspired handling quickly impressed Ferrari fans. With production of approximately 3,800 examples continuing through 1974, the Dino 246 was available both as a hardtop GT and a targa-style GTS.
