Coupe
Designer: Bertone
Dino road cars came into existence because of Ferrari's need to homologate a V6 engine for Formula 2 racing. In 1965 the Commission Sportive Internationale de la FIA created new rules, to be enacted for the 1967 season. F2 engines were required to have no more than six cylinders, and to be derived from a production engine. They would be based on a road car to be homologated in the GT class, and production needed to be at least 500 examples within a twelve month period. Ferrari did not possess the production capacity to reach that number, so an agreement was signed with Fiat to produce the 500 engines needed for the homologation. These would then be installed in a yet unspecified GT car.

The resulting Fiat-built V6 engine ended up being installed in two very different vehicles: the Fiat Dino, a front-engined grand tourer assembled by Fiat, and Ferrari's first series produced mid-engined sports car, built in Maranello and sold under the newly created Dino marque. Even on the cylinder block casting, the name FIAT was visible, which was not in line with the newly created DINO nameplate.

Spider and coupe bodies were produced respectively by Pininfarina and Bertone. 2.0-liter and early 2.4-liter cars were assembled by Fiat in Rivalta di Torino. Starting from December 1969, the Fiat Dino was assembled in Maranello on Ferrari's production line, alongside the 246 GT.

With its present owner since 1988, this example is one of approximately forty currently in the United States.
