Icons & Innovators: Pininfarina: A Powerful Memorial

<< Back to Robb Report, January 2007

Some would argue that the Dino is the most beautiful sports car ever made, and it is an argument that is difficult to counter. The car was named for Enzo Ferrari’s son Dino, who died of muscular dystrophy in 1956. Ferrari made two versions, both of which were equipped with V-6 engines. Ferrari produced 152 examples of the 206 GT, but few of those left Italy. The 246 GT had a slightly longer wheelbase, a 2.4-liter engine, and a production run of 2,487.
