The Dino road cars came to be because of Enzo Ferrari’s need to homologate a V6 engine for Formula 2 racing cars. In 1965 the Commission Sportive Internationale de la FIA had drawn up new rules, to be enacted for the 1967 season. F2 engines were required to have no more than six cylinders, and to be derived from a production engine, from a road car homologated in the GT class and produced in at least 500 examples within 12 months.
When a friend asked me to make an illustration of the car he had in his garage, I was overwhelmed by the idea. A great vector illustration project that displayed one more car in my virtual garage – Thanks for that!
