Book: DINO-The V6 Ferrari


The book follows the story of the car named after Enzo's son from its first appearance in 1965 as a styling exercise, through to the last production car, built in 1973.

Although not the fastest or the most powerful Ferrari, the beautiful lines of the Dino have inspired generations of enthusiasts. This book provides the definitive chronicle of the Dino, from Pininfarina concept car through to the final production model, and is illustrated throughout with contemporary material.

The production cars for the US and European markets are looked at in year-by-year detail, so that all variants are described.

Born within walking distance of the old Jaguar and Daimler factories in Coventry, Brian Long was heavily involved with JDHT for many years. Since moving to Japan, the link has continued, as he teaches Jaguar and Land Rover history (and how it fits in with British culture) as part of the dealer training programme for Jaguar Land Rover Japan.

Coming from an engineering background, Long has had around 60 books published in a writing career spanning two decades, with his work being translated into German, French and Japanese.

He currently lives in Chiba City with his wife, Miho, and their two children, Louis and Sophie-Mercedes. The family line-up is completed by an ex-racehorse – a bay Thoroughbred that has acquired the nickname ‘Bugatti’ at his stables.
