It could be argued that there's no such thing as a Ferrari that isn't special in some way. But even among Maranello's brightest creations, the "Ferrari" Dino 246 GT and GTS have a unique emotional connection to the company's founder.
As /DRIVE explains in their latest video, Alfredo "Dino" Ferrari was the son of the company's enigmatic founder, Enzo Ferrari. His destiny to take over the company one day was cut short due to a muscle disease that claimed his life at just 24 years old.
The car that bears his name carries on Dino's dream of a smaller Ferrari with a smaller 2.4-liter V6. It wasn't perfect by any means, and for years it was considered less desirable among the faithful. They weren't even branded as Ferraris back in their day.
But in this video, Ferrari racer and expert John Pogson — whom we last saw in XCAR's feature on the F40 — tells us that it was a piece of art well ahead of its time.
Then there's that sound. The sound! If that doesn't lift your spirits, check your pulse.
