Ferrari 246 Dino
The Dino was a big step for Ferrari, even if it was the smallest model they ever made. Ferrari presented it in the mid-60s as the 206 Dino. It was a small, entry-level model with a V6 engine. However, most car purists were outraged since it was the first sports car Ferrari made without the big V12 engine.
But when Ferrari introduced the 246 Dino in 1968, their sales picked up. And that made this little car responsible for the financial stability Ferrari always needed. And all of this makes the Dino and its V6 important, and not just for Ferrari, but also in the annals of car history.
