In fact, the Dino name itself was created in Ferrari’s attempt create a low-cost sports car, ultimately opening the door to people a little less fortunate than those that could actually afford a real Ferrari. Ferrari produced several versions of the Dino like the V-6 206 GT, 246 GT, the 246 GTS, and there was even an eight-cylinder model, the 308 GT4.

The Ferrari 296 GTB makes 818 horses combined, can sprint to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds, and comes with an electric only range of 16 miles

A new Ferrari has been spotted numerous times in the past, sometimes near the factory, once on the Fiorano race track in Italy, and even in its production form a month before the reveal. Now, it’s finally out of the box. The Italian automaker has unveiled its latest car – the 296 GTB – and it will sit at the bottom of the hierarchy.
