Fiat Dino Spider is No Poor Man's Ferrari

Roadster / 15 Comments

It might not be as exotic as the Ferrari Dino, but it's no less special.

Enzo Ferrari loved racing. So desperate was he to race in Formula 2 using the new V6 engine inspired by his dying son Dino, Fiat was called upon for help in order to build the requisite number of cars to satisfy the homologation rules. With that, the Fiat Dino Coupe and Spider were born, and Ferrari was able to compete in F2. While it may wear a Fiat badge, there's no mistaking the Dino's engine note for anything other than Ferrari. It's also a beauty to look at.

Only 200 or so of these gorgeous roadsters exist today and Danny Soukup is the proud owner of a 1968 Fiat Dino Spider - the star of the latest Petrolicious installment.
