History

The Fiat Dino was a Fiat car produced from 1966 to 1973. The Dino name refers to the Ferrari Dino V6 engine. This engine was produced by Fiat for Formula 2 Ferrari racing cars. Due to new rules, F2 engines were no longer allowed to have more than 6 cylinders. Besides this, the new rules required also that 500 examples were produced within 12 months. Because Ferrari was too small to produce 500 engines in such a short amount of time, Ferrari and Fiat came to an agreement: Fiat would produce the 500 engines.

The new V6 engine, build by Fiat, was installed in two different cars: the Fiat Dino, a front-engined grand tourer assembled in Turin by Fiat, and in Ferrari's mid-engined sports car, built in Maranello and sold under the new Dino brand.

Car description

In October 1966, the Fiat Dino was introduced as a 2-seater Spider (convertible) at the Turin Motor Show. The Fiat Dino Spider was designed and manufactured for Fiat by Pininfarina. The car has a wood-rimmed steering wheel as well as a wood trim on the dashboard.
