The mini Ferrari: 1975 Dino 208 GT4


This can be considered, for several reasons, the last in the Ferrari family, but still it was built in the same factory of its noble relatives.


Because of Italian taxes of that period which hardly penalized engines bigger than 2000 c.c., Ferrari was forced to built smaller engines to feed the Italian market which was the most important along with the U.S. So, this car is had only 179 h.p. instead of the 255 of its bigger 3000 c.c. sister. So, this car is slower than a Montreal but still it has enough power to have fun.


This particular car has still its original black plate and it seems a very nice specimen. The seller says only that it’s “just perfect” and actually it seems so, even if some better photos didn’t ruin our day. It is said to have 42,000 kms and that could be true as these were sunday cars (not rainy); it deserves for sure an inspection in flesh. Find it for sale at €25,900 (today $28,000) here in Formello, Italy.
