Unofficially a Ferrari: The Dino's Sincere Greatness

Despite not wearing the official Prancing Horse logo, the Dino is considered one of the greatest Ferraris of all time.

Enzo Ferrari was never a fan of mid-engine sports cars. He wanted his cars to be equipped with front-engined V12s. But his son Alfredo, nicknamed Dino, a young engineer who sadly died before his time, saw things a bit differently. The younger Ferrari helped develop the new V6 engine but never lived to see it. Fortunately, the car was built and named in his honor. The original plan was to create the Dino brand as a low-cost car, but its engineering and technical setup was too brilliant to ignore, and today’s 458 Italia has it to thank.
