Enzo Ferrari was hesitant to adapt the mid-engine layout for his customer cars, fearing they might be unsafe. He eventually relented and Sergio Pininfarina was tasked with designing a mid-engined concept for the 1965 Paris Motor Show, but demanded that it wear the Dino badge alone. At the Turin car show in 1966, the Dino 203S was well receipted and production soon followed.
The production Dino 206GT had many updates, modifications and changes such as softer edges and curving lines typical of earlier Italian cars. The 2-liter all-aluminum engine was transversely-mounted mid-ship and offered 160 horsepower. The V-6 engine featured dual overhead camshafts and 9.7:1 compression ratio. The crankshaft featured four main bearings with induction via three Weber 40 DCN/4 2-barrel carburetors. The frame of the 206GT was made from lightweight aluminum and fitted with full independent suspension. Disc brakes could be found at all four corners. The wheelbase of the car measured a short 90-inches. Top speed was a very impressive 146 mph. In total, there were only 152 examples built during 1968 and 1969.
