Pininfarina Dino Berlinetta Speciale

Ferrari Dino Berlinetta Speciale (Pininfarina) (1965)

The DINO Berlinetta Speciale, presented in Paris, in 1965 at the Pininfarina stand was designed by Aldo Brovarone. This prototype may be considered the last prototype seen by the founder of Pininfarina and was then one of the first models to be carried on by his son Sergio.

It was another revolutionary design, the first prototype of a new generation of Ferrari middle engine. This design has since inspired many Ferrari central engine models and gave birth to the 206 and 246 Dino generation road versions.

This Berlinetta speciale prototype originates from a lenticular form to which the wheel streamlining and the roof are attached.

The front hood is thin, with a raised profile in which two pairs of headlights are placed in the air intake.

The side, with a pronounced dihedral, opens towards the base of the rear fender where a gouge is at the base of the air intake for the cooling of the engine and the power feed.

The design around the wheels is very pronounced and is reminiscent of the famous modern P2 and P3 models.

Another distinguishing and innovative feature is the rear end of the car where the rear window is vertical and concave with two lateral fins as a frame which then continue on to the tail.

Also in 1965 Brovarone designs the tubular shaped Giulia sport consolidating a period of intense creativity both personally and for the firm.
