The Dino was a rear-wheel-drive mid-engined sports car built by Ferrari between 1968 and 1976. The Dino used engines of less than 12 cylinders, keeping the Ferrari name for the V12 and Flat 12 engines. The name Dino stopped being used after 1976, leaving the continuation of the brand at the timeless name of Ferrari. The Dino was Ferrari’s effort to build a relatively low cost sports car by using other cars’ parts. The Dino was built in honor of Enzo Ferrari’s son, Alfredo “Dino”. It was acquired in 1990 by the Museum in Greece through Government auction at a price more than three times the estimate. The car also had many deficiencies which took years and lots of effort on the Museum’s part, for its full restoration.
