In theory, the Dino is a front
In theory, the Dino is a front, mid-engined coupe originally designed as the replacement for the Maserati GT coupe and spider. The engine is a derivative of the F430, which is a derivative of the 4.0 in the Maser. It gets enlarged and output is over 400 HP, but prolly not greater than 450 Hp. Alfa and Maserati are supposedly using the same engine but tuning it for their specific applications and increasing capacity up to 4.5 liters. We 've seen the Alfa 8C concept which is due here next year at an exorbident price point ($190K) and the Maser is due about the same time for under $100K. It will resemble the current Maser, but stretched a bit and not as Honda Prelude looking. I have not yet seen the Dino design, but I'm figuring on a mini F599 look.
