It might look like a cross between a Ferrari 458 Italia and the new 488 GTB, but what we could be looking at is a test mule for the upcoming Dino.
Set to be launched in the next 2 to 3 years, the Dino will, as was the case with the original model, feature a V6 engine, but this time it will be turbocharged.
According to the photographers who captured these images, the engine sound didn’t represent a naturally-aspirated V8 engine or a turbocharged V8 engine – more proof that it is a Dino mule. According to Carscoops.com, the engine sound was actually similar to that of the Alfa Romeo Giulia QV which also features a twin-turbo V6.
As we have reported earlier, the Dino will be built on Ferrari’s new modular platform, while power delivery is reported to start around 335 kW for the standard model, and up to 447 kW for a special (read GTO, Speciale) model.
As Ferrari is also forced to implement downsizing on its engines, these performance figures are still a tantalising prospect.
