2018 Ferrari Dino
Ferrari basically created the Dino brand for models that will use the engines for not more than 12-cylinder that was spanned from 1968 to 1976 and they included the distinctive 246 GTS. Now, they seem will resurrect the name to complete their new sports car. Based on rumors, the company will develop V6 engine for this 2018 Ferrari Dino sports car. Spy photographer caught the 458-based design and its look is not with the usual V8 and it was followed by 488 that also didn’t use turbocharged V8 engine. It sounds that they will use the new turbo V6 that has been used for the new 2016 Alfa Romeo Giulia QV.
What the company tries to make is that they want to revive the Dino nameplate for their sports car. It comes with new exterior design that is heavily camouflaged. It is still using the Italia body with massive air intakes that you can find out on the rear fenders. With the capability to offer 500 hp and high revving turbo, the possible hint is that it has great engine cooling. 2018 Ferrari Dino now is assumed to get mid-engine design and it wouldn’t replace the 2015 Ferrari California T. This coupe has its own design although it is still derived from Ferrari 488 GTB, but the car will borrow some parts. It has shorter and narrower design compared to the 488’s platform and it has sleek roofline with unique lights, wheels, doors and bumpers.
Ferrari confirmed that the cost for this car will not be too far from the California T and it means that 2018 Ferrari Dino might have the same quality and design features like the California T. This will give a high level of comfort with two-tone and leather covered dashboard as well as sports seats to complete the flat-bottomed steering wheel and high-grade leather and alcantara for every surface. The standard model will get aluminum and carbon fiber while the top model will give you wide option of upholstery colors. Latest technology will be added too in order to complete its premium audio system.
Back to 1974, at that time the car was designed with Ferrari’s V6 engine and the original Dino was replaced by Ferrari Dino 308 GTA with V8 engine. Up to now, Ferrari only used V6 engines for Formula One cars. Now, they should use a more modern engine. They are quite promising to use the modified V6 engine and 3.0 liter that is also used by Alfa Romeo Giulia QV to provide 530 when it is used in 2018 Ferrari Dino. Because this car is lighter, it can offer better acceleration to reach 60 mph which can be done in just 3.3 seconds and the top speed can be about 200 mph.
