Ahh the Dino, quite the rare car. Seen one in a showroom before, it was in perfect condition (like brand new). On the topic of yorkville, I saw an orange gt3 rs parked there, and MTM Porsche Cayenne, and a Lamborghini Diablo being loaded on a flat bed (i have a pic of the Diablo)

IIRC there are less than 4000 ever made... Not sure how much they are worth though... guessing over a 100 grand for sure...

^^ Nah, dinos are beauties, but bastard child ferraris. They aren t that bad on the expense scale. I would snach one if i could.


I love the spyder.

Fiat Dino's are relatively inexpensive. Ferrari Dino's are considerably more.

Kit cars are obviously cheap too.

Wasn't the Dino named after Enzo's son who died as an infant? Kinda morid and strange.

The Dino is very expensive and rare (depending on the year) .. mostly kit cars out there.

I don't think they guy would have the plate "72 DINO" if it wasn't a real one. Also, just because there's a few doesn't mean they can't be seen. I've seen more than one Enzo on the streets of the GTA :)

well the story is that Dino helped sketch the engine that later was put into the Dino. He was very involved in Ferrari, period. He was Enzo's only legitimate son (he had an illegitimate one that was kept secret for years, but is now an exec in Ferrari). I think it was a great tribute. Funnily, there isn't a single ferrari badge on most Dino's

ya that's what my friend was saying, they don't have ferrari badges.

Originally Enzo Ferrari didn't want to produce the Dino. After Lambo released the Miura, Enzo agreed to produce the Dino, but minus the badges.
