The History of the Ferrari 206 GT Dino
The commercial Dino 206 GT was developed by Leonardo Fioravanti of Pininfarina, the man responsible for many of Ferrari's iconic designs, and manufactured by Scaglietti. It had the soft edges and beautiful flowing lines that were distinctive of early Ferrari's, as a contrast to its much more angular successor, the 308 GT4, which had the straighter lines and sharper edges that were most evident in Gandini's following Fiat X1/9.
During the same time period, the Fiat Dino Coupe and Spider had the same 2 Litre, 1,986.60 cc engine as the 206 GT Dino. Aurelio Lampredi, a designer Ferrari owed many of its great engines to, was charged with the adaptation of the Dino 206 SP/S twin-cam racing engine for road-going duty in the Dino (and the two Fiat editions). The 2.4L engine was also used in subsequent Fiat Dinos, albeit many fewer of them were manufactured with it.
