Fiat Dino Overview
The Fiat Dino is a sports car developed by the Italian car manufacturers Fiat. This vehicle was in production from 1966-73. This is a rear wheel drive sports car and was originally created in preparation for the Ferrari Dino. The Ferrari and Fiat parts were interchangeable and even had the same engines, so the Ferrari and Fiat names were irrelevant, it was almost the same car with different brands. This vehicle was pretty powerful for the engine size and could go from 0-60mph in under 8 seconds.
Fiat Dino History
There were two different versions of the Fiat Dino designed. They were both designed by different people. The Spider was designed by Pininfarina and the Coupe by Giorgetto Giugiaro. When this car was introduced in 1966 it had a 2.0 V6 engine which was to be shared with the Ferrari 206. Ferrari wanted to label this car the ‘Dino’ after Alfredo Ferrari who died on 30th June 1956 at the age of 24 years old, but were not permitted to. Dino was his nickname. This was where the name for the Fiat version came from.
The 2.0 cars and engines for both the Ferrari and the Fiat were made at the Fiat factory, and were the exact same engine. In 1969 the engine was upgraded to the 2.4 V6, giving it more power. The 2.4 car was made at the Ferrari factory. Only 424 of the Fiat Dino Spider’s were made with the 2.4 engine.
The earlier engine was a 2.0 V6 and the later engine a 2.4 V6. Both these engines were greedy on fuel, as you would expect with any sports car, especially a V6.
The gearbox was a 5-speed manual. There is a Fiat gearbox parts section on our website. Visit this section to find your Fiat gearbox parts.
