"Sometimes a street spot deserves a little more airtime than others. This Fiat Dino is such a street spot. In the cold light of a Shoreditch afternoon the car looks shockingly other than this time and place. The car kind "
This lovely Barchetta concept from 2000 was commissioned within Fiovaranti to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Enzo Ferrari’s birth.
Based on the 360 Modena format: it spookily prefigured the 430 and 458 Italia cars that would eventually be released by the Modena factory itself.
This car, however, was fitted with a V10 engine and a Veyron-like airbrake.
Whether or not it was the result of a little bit of industrial subterfuge or just a lucky bit of penmanship, we love the hunkered down flow of the car.
And don’t call it a spider!
