By Auto News Log • October 11th, 2009

This is our inaugural Classic Spotlight installment. You’ve likely noticed on the VMC site we have two prominent sections dedicated to and featuring classic cars of all types. As we cycle in new spotlight featurettes we’ll graduate the old here in the VMC Blog… a more than suitable resting place.

1973 Ferrari Dino 246GT

The Dino, Ferrari’s first mid-engined road car, was named in honor of Enzo Ferrari’s son, who died in 1956 at the age of 24. It is perhaps the most perfect example of the “young man’s car” ever built, combining style with incomparable performance.
