The Dino brand was created by Ferrari to produce affordable and inexpensive sports cars capable of competing with the Porsche 911.

The last model, produced under the brand Dino, was the four-seater coupe Dino 308 GT4. The car was distinguished by its angular shapes (the merit of designers Bertone), as well as the V8 engine. A 2.9-liter unit with four Weber carburetors and a camber angle of 90 degrees produced 255 horsepower.
Under the Dino brand, the model 308 GT4 was produced until 1976. After which the car began to produce as a Ferrari.
