The Dino 208 GT4 was produced from 1975 to 1980 and supplemented the existing Dino 308 GT4, first produced in 1973. This 1977 Dino 208 GT4 features a 2.0L V8 with a 5-speed manual transmission. It was a low-displacement version of the 308 GT produced for the Italian market (avoiding a special tax on bigger engines), resulting in the smallest production V8 in history for a road car. It produces 170 horsepower and, according to Ferrari, a top speed of 137 mph. Only 840 of these vehicles were produced, before being replaced by the 208 GTB in 1980. The GT4 was a groundbreaking model for Ferrari in several ways: it was the first production Ferrari to feature the mid-engined V8 layout that would become the bulk of the company's business in the succeeding decades, and was the first production Ferrari with Bertone designed bodywork. Pininfarina was upset by the decision to give cross-town rival Bertone the design, considering all they had done for Ferrari. The styling featured angular lines entirely different from its curvaceous 2-seater brother, the Dino 246, and was controversial at the time. From the cockpit the driver sees only the road. It has perfect 360 degree visibility, no blind spots, upright and comfortable seating position, a real trunk, a back seat for soft luggage, and very easy engine access. Enzo Ferrari himself took a major role in its design, even having a mock-up made where he could sit in the car to test different steering, pedals and cockpit seating positioning. This model of Dino finally gained the "Prancing Horse" badge in May 1976, which replaced the Dino badges on the hood, wheels, rear panel and the steering wheel. This has caused major confusion over the years by owners, enthusiasts and judges. During the energy crisis at that time many prospective owners were hesitant to buy such an expensive automobile not badged "Ferrari" being confused at the significance of the Dino name. Dino was Enzo Ferrari's son who died in 1956, and his name was to honor his memory on the models it was placed.
