There was a story behind the name "Dino" and the V6 engine. Alfredino Ferrari, the only son of Enzo Ferrari, suggested his father to develop a V6 racing engine for Formula 2 in the early 60s. Although always in favour of V12, Enzo approved his beloved son's project and employed famed engineer Vittorio Jano to design this engine. The result was a very compact, 1600cc, quad-cam V6 which eventually won several F2 championship titles.
