The 1968 Fiat Dino name refers to Alfredo Ferrari, who happened to be the son of Enzo Ferrari. Alfredo happened to be a fan of V6 engines that he designed while ill. In 1967, the FIA decided that the cars used in Formula 2 races needed to be produced to run on the street. A “minimum of 500 units had to be built for the street, after which the engine could only be used on the circuit,” Classic Driver said.
