Talk about a V6-powered successor to the Ferrari Dino has been swirling for a few years now and in September, the Italian automaker announced that it is working on a V6 engine family, reviving speculation about a new model to its line-up.
While Ferrari hasn’t confirmed what model, or models, will use its upcoming V6s, it’s widely assumed to be a new mid-engine model that slots below the Ferrari 488 GTB and directly rivals McLaren’s Sports Series. These renderings from Evren Milano provide us with a look at what the car may look like.
The renderings of a future Ferrari Dino finished in red and blue depict the sports car with a similar overall shape to the 488 but completed with an overhauled front fascia. Among the most significant features are an oval-shaped front grille, a tiny frunk, and headlights dramatically different in shape to those of current Ferrari models.
A separate rendering of the potential new model, this time painted yellow, has a more dramatic look with a tiny grille, small headlights, and menacing sides with circular air intakes just behind the doors.
Last but not least we have a rendering that depicts the new Dino sitting alongside the original and painted in an interesting shade of bronze. The car depicted in this rendering has a retro look heavily inspired by the original. Consequently, it includes circular headlights, a familiar hood with small cut-outs, and a familiar roofline. Of the three designs shown by the renderings, this one is our favorite.
If Ferrari does opt to premiere its new family of V6 engines with a Ferrari Dino successor, we’ll probably see it early next decade.
