Traditionalists originally frowned upon the fact that the Dino shared it's engine with a Fiat - it didn't even carry any Ferrari badging! The Dino has, however, become one of the most collectable of classic Ferraris thanks in no small part to it's timeless Pininfarina styling.
Being Ferrari's first mid-engined production car, the Dino handled superbly and despite being quite heavy for a car of its class, performance was respectable. The 195bhp V6 gave a true 150mph top speed while the standing quarter mile was despatched in around 15 seconds.
The GTS Spider joined the Coupe and Targa in 1972 just two years before the 246GT was replaced by the unpopular 308 GT4.
