In 1968 the first ‘more affordable Ferrari’ appeared on the market. The car, however, did not bear the name Ferrari; it was called Dino. Of this model, in various iterations, 3,914 cars were produced up until 1974. The car was not only a successful showroom model for the Italian manufacturer – as it’s matured, the Dino has appealed to classic car enthusiasts and slowly became a less ‘affordable’ car. In fact, the value increased more than other, once more expensive Ferraris. It is obvious that the Dino attracts enthusiasts but is the purchase of such a car a good investment?
