Dino 246 GT
The Dino 246 GT presented at the Geneva International Motor Show in 1969 was built to compete with the Porsche 911s which hampered Ferrari for sales of their V12-powered cars.
Enzo Ferrari designs the model with a 2.4 L V6 engine with double overhead camshaft for a power of 195 hp and a speed of 235 km/h.
Built from 1969 to 1974, much cheaper than a Ferrari, it was very successful and in particular for its amazing performance for its power of only 195 hp and a bewitching sound that helped its success. It was built in 3,761 units at the Ferrari factory in Maranello .
Following the success of the engine of the Dino 246 GT, the engine will also be used for the Fiat Dino in 2 L and 2.4 L with the same settings and power, but for marketing reasons it will only be indicated 180 hp for the version 2.4L.
