The Dino 246 GT is one of the best looking sports coupÃ©s ever made. And now Ferrari is planning to revive the Dino name and this time it will be a fully fledged Ferrari model. The test mule above, using a heavily modified 488 GTB body, is believed to be one of the first sightings of the new Dino.
Like the original, the 21st century Dino will be powered by a V6 and peak power is predicted to be around 375kW (500hp). Expected to sit beneath the 488 the new Dino will weigh less and be more compact in size.
Sergio Marchionne, Fiat Chrysler boss, confirmed the Dino last month in an interview with UK newspaper the Telegraph: “It’s a when not an if. We know that it [Dino] is an underused resource, but that’s why we need to get it right.”
