Motore FIAT tipo 135B - Dino 2000
1966 - 1969



This engine represents the result of the FIAT-Ferrari collaboration in the mid-1960’s in order to overcome the new F2 Championship of 1967, prescribing the use of an engine derived from that of a car produced in at least 500 examples. To this purpose FIAT designed a new sport car, the Dino spider, equipped with a 2000 cc V6 engine, strictly developed from a Ferrari competition engine (the Dino 206) and adapted for mass production by Aurelio Lampredi, one of the most important Ferrari and then FIAT mechanical designer between the 50’s and 60’s. The car reached a good success and was produced in over 500 examples. Its engine features a fine design and high performance and it was used for both FIAT Dino spider and coupè. The same engine, but with different powertrain layaout, was used for the SEFAC (Ferrari) 206 GT sport car.
