Lego Technic Ferrari Dino

This gorgeous Technic Ferrari Dino 246 was found by one of our Elves on Flickr today. Built by James Tillson it perfectly captures one of the last curvy Ferraris before the wedges of the ’70s took over sports car design.

With only a 2.4 litre V6 engine (enlarged from just 2 litres in the early cars) the Dino – named after Enzo Ferrari’s son who died tragically young – was one of the few Ferrari models that wasn’t a supercar, and whilst Ferrari’s other non-supercar efforts are often looked down upon the original Dino is still held in high esteem.

James’ recreation of the 246 is a worthy homage to the original car, and there’s lots more to see of his splendid Lego recreation at his photostream by clicking the link above.
