2010 Ferrari 420 Dino – Finally Confirmed

Update: The 420 Dino was made, but in the form of the 2010 Ferrari California.

Finally! We got word that Ferrari does indeed plan to create the Dino Concept that has been peeking its head recently. Unfortunately there aren’t many confirmed details, but we do have some universally agreed-upon theories of Ferrari’s next major model.

One of the biggest questions about a new “budget” Ferrari is whether or not it will dilute the Ferrari brand name. Ferrari wants to sell the new model between $140,000 and $160,000 USD, and are currently trying to decide if a lower price will do just that.

The Dino is scheduled to go on sale as a 2010 model, and will hopefully make its debut in an early 2009 Auto Show. Estimated output is at 3500-5000 units per year.

Rumor has it the car will be named the “420 Dino,” bringing back the name of what some would call the most beautiful Ferrari ever made. The “420” in the name hints at the all-new, all-aluminum 90 degree 4.2 Liter V8 producing just under the 480 horsepower that the current F430 makes.

The engine will be mounted in a “front-mid” configuration, putting the engine mostly all behind the front axle; differing from both the F430 and older Dino model. In response to the new powerful V8, Ferrari says by 2008 the F430 will get the 5.0 liter V10 being developed that pushes out around 550 horsepower.

The Dino will keep the modern interior theme, providing a beautiful carbon fiber or aluminum trim. Who wouldn’t go with the carbon fiber? Also new is a standard satellite navigation system. The body panels are expected to be carbon fiber all around, providing a lighter weight and increased strength.

I’m interested to see the evolution of this concept, as it will be very important in the Ferrari line. While Ferrari doesn’t want to dilute the brand name with inexpensive models, they can pull it off with this model.

I don’t see it replacing the extraordinary 360 Modena as best-selling model, but if this “bottom-of-the-line” model offers the features and performance rumored at the estimated price (or less,) you might see one or two rolling down the street in your home town in 2010.

How to Get Invoice Pricing

  1. All you guys are out of whack, though that might be forgiven seeing as most comments were posted before this info came out, so…FYI: The new Ferrari will not be called the Dino. It will be called the California and it is more of a GT than a supercar. And it sure as hell does not look as ugly as the one shown.

    Taylor…what the hell do I say to you? Why would you lie so naively? I know that this is the Internet, but if you're going to lie, at least lie convincingly. And if by some chance you do own a Bentley, you don't deserve it.

    As for Butkiss…you don't have an Enzo. A lie of this caliber is even worse than Taylor's. There's not even a if-you-did-you-don't-deserve-it scenario, because you don't. You just don't. And no, the Ferrari California will not kick the Enzo's ass.

    And as for Tyce…you're an idiot. Where the hell did you get the idea that Ferrari would sell one of their models as a competitor to the freakin' M3? That's like saying a BMW is as prestigious, as, well, a Ferrari. Can't say I blame that kind of wishful thinking though.

    And Alex, I'll bet that your uncle does not have one on order… because the above car does not freakin' exist.

  2. I agree with demon blade.

    but I think that its unethical to argue over somthing like this.

    What if the car is real what if it isnt? personally I dont give a sh-t. Whether it's real or not has nothing to do with me

  3. I just want to say thank you to those that bring a level of personal integrity and class, which should be associated with the Ferrari name. You are my people.

  4. you people omg! this is sooooo fake! i don't believe how blind people can be… its a porsche cayman that has been photoshopped…wooooow the people that say it is the new dino, are the people who watch top gear every week and because they do so, they think they know everything about cars holy mother peeps! stop being so blind, look at the porsche cayman publicity photos, and see that the person photoshoped it from those photos… and anyway, when ferrari releases publicity pictures for their new cars, its in a dark room where the ferrari is the only object in the picture!

  5. We know it wasn't a real picture – Ferrari obviously hadn't released anything at the time so we had to use a "speculation" photo or a rendering from a fan.

    1. The car is 250,000 i will be dead before i can pay for even half of it,thanks but no job i ever get will land me this car. the country is not the same as when you were young. All hope for the american dream is gone for this 45 year old man. My only hope for this car is if God gives me one for a door prize at the gates of heven.

    2. You are right that this country is not the same as we once knew, the challenges that we have all been faced with is something I would have never have thought I would have experienced in our lifetime,as long as there is hope and determination we all will survive, I always keep saying everything happens for a reason,Hope to see you at the wedding…hang in there:)
