1973 Ferrari 246 Dino

The prototype for the 246 appeared in the early part of 1969 with the production version being rolled out only months later. Production continued until 1973. A total of 2,487 246's were produced.

Scaglietti built the vehicle while the Ferrari designed engine was built by Fiat.

The Dino 246 was almost identical to the 206. Just like the 206, it did not wear any Ferrari logos or badges. There were a few aesthetic changes and a larger wheelbase (2.1 inch increase). Under the hood, however, they were differences. The 246 had a more reliable and larger V-6 engine that was capable of almost 200 hp (European version). The American version had a slightly lower horsepower rating.
