The Dino 246 and 308 GT4 Were Not "Less-Than" Ferraris — Revelations with Jason Cammisa Ep. 31

Published in Video

Popular lore has taken an out-of-context quote from Enzo Ferrari that "a Ferrari is a twelve-cylinder car" to mean that Il Commendatore thought any car with fewer than twelve cylinders is not worthy of the Ferrari badge. And thus, the Dino Ferraris aren't real Ferraris. Nothing could be further from the truth. Dino was the name of Ferrari's only one legitimate son, who died young at the merciless hands of Muscular Dystrophy. Dino himself was named after Enzo's father and older brother, both of whom died when Enzo was a teenager. The "Dino" badge wasn't an insult — it was an honor. And it adorns two of the best-driving Ferrari road cars ever created. In this episode, automotive journalist Jason Cammisa explains the history of Enzo's Double Ds — the 206/246 Dino and the 308 GT4 Dino — and how they both foretold the future of Ferrari's road cars, both in layout (mid-engine sports car) and in engine (with the 308 GT4's flat-plane-crankshaft V-8.) == If you like this content, consider becoming a member of Hagerty Driver's Club!
