I like it too and from a Cayman owner this thing should handle like a go-kart.

Finally! We got word that Ferrari does indeed plan to create the Dino Concept that has been peeking its head recently. Unfortunately there aren’t many confirmed details, but we do have some universally agreed-upon theories of Ferrari’s next major model. One of the biggest questions about a new “budget” Ferrari is whether or not it will dilute the Ferrari brand name. Ferrari wants to sell the new model between $140,000 and $160,000 USD, and are currently trying to decide if a lower price will do just that.



The Dino is scheduled to go on sale as a 2010 model, and will hopefully make its debut in an early 2009 Auto Show. Estimated output is at 3500-5000 units per year.

Rumor has it the car be named the “420 Dino,” bringing back the name of what some would call the most beautiful Ferrari ever made. The “420″ in the name hints at the all-new, all-aluminum 90 degree 4.2 Liter V8 producing just under the 480 horsepower that the current F430 makes. The engine will be mounted in a “front-mid” configuration, putting the power mostly all behind the front axle; differing from both the F430 and older Dino model. In response to the new powerful V8, Ferrari says by 2008 the F430 will get the 5.0 liter V10 being developed that pushes out around 550 horsepower.



The Dino will keep the modern interior theme, providing a beautiful carbon fiber or aluminum trim. Who wouldn’t go with the carbon fiber? Also new is a standard satellite navigation system. The body panels are expected to be carbon fiber all around, providing a lighter weight and increased strength.



I’m interested to see the evolution of this concept, as it will be very important in the Ferrari line. While Ferrari doesn’t want to dilute the brand name with inexpensive models, they can pull it off with this model. I don’t see it replacing the extraordinary 360 Modena as best-selling model, but if this “bottom-of-the-line” model offers the features and performance rumored at the estimated price (or less,) you might see one or two rolling down the street in your home town in 2010.

That would probably make for the best Ferrari, yet!

Also, why assume 420 means 4.2 L anything? That wasn't always the Ferrari methodology for naming cars, you know? It used to be the swept volume of a single cylinder! 420 can be anything, and I would guess a turbo 6 is at least being considered ... remember: a Dino is NOT a Ferrari. Never was.
