Such a fabulous example of the Dino. Thanks for sharing your story Cici.

The separation angle of the cylinder banks on this V6 is 65 degrees, increased from 60 degrees on prior engines. This is discussed 5:09 in the video. The motivation for this change is unclear. What say you, members of the ‘hive mind’ that is Petrolicious? Opening up the cylinder banks a little provides more room for the manifold. Does this make the engine ‘package envelop’ more compact? That might be a motivation. The exhaust ports get tilted down, easing the first bend radius on the exhaust headers slightly, making that bend run cooler. What were they seeking?

Inspiring to say the least! Gotta love a woman who is living her passion and drives the same way. Grateful for the share – keep them coming.

Not much to say here: She gets it. She knows it. She loves it. It’s long been my favorite Ferrari, even though you won’t find that name anywhere on the body. Well-done, again.

Possibly the best, most passionate Dino promoter ever 🙂

I don’t mean to be disrespectful but I’ve never met (generally speaking) or known anyone quite like this woman portrayed here. A car lover and intelligent. And she has a background in physics! We could discuss Heisenberg’s theories all day and her not stare at me like I have a third eye growing out of my forehead.

One of the best yet. Love to hear more about the rest of the garage!

Great film. I’ve met Cici a couple of times through mutual friends, and she is definitely a total car enthusiast. I don’t know many people that know more about classic Ferraris than she does.

Petrolicious, where do you get these gems?! The car and it’s elegant owner who gets it so perfectly? Cars are metal – you ding them, you fixed them! -That’s it!

Btw, I think it’s the first time I’ve seen anyone driving a classic Ferrari through mud and (very) dirty water!

Please, continue!

Love the fact that she doesn’t care about the rain, etc. Cars are most definitely meant to be driven.

How many would disagree with the fact that this model would be one of the best looking Ferraris ever made albeit not officially a Ferrari. Great to see her enjoying the car and not being too precious. I`m embarrassed as our Dino sits in the garage hardly used.

You mean 1974 rather than 1964 in the title.

A purple Ferrari? I think it actually works on the Dino especially with the tan interior. Interesting lady!
