Is it dangerous? Oh yeah!
Is it Italian? Oh yeah!
And whoever sets the music for these videos needs a round of applause. Beautiful videos in image and sound, all of these. Makes you look for a movie that isn’t there.
The amount of still living Dino spiders is not really correct.

My favorite feature to date, well done!
It would seem a forum dedicated to the Fiat Dino in both coupé and Spyder form has recently gone live. Not surprisingly this video is be discussed on there. http://www.fiatdinoforum.org/index.php
good job y’all. excellent interview.
What an absolutely beautiful car. If I had it, I would never drive it without shades and if anyone ever asked me if I needed to get gas I would look disgustedly at them and say “It doesn’t take “gas” it takes BENZINA!” Look at the gauge!!!!!” An interesting point about the Fiat Dino Coupe and Spider is that the Coupe was designed by Bertone and the Spider was by Pininfarina who commodified the frontal styling from their mid-engined 1965 Dino 206 prototype for it. (See pic) I also love that there’s a starting procedure. When I had my Lancia… Read more »
Nice man, great car and wonderful film! Fantastic footage and – as always – very good music. Tank you!
As a Fiat Dino fan for the past 30 + years, thankyou all for presenting this video. Nice guy, great attitude and what a superb Dino spider. BTW they also made a Fiat Dino coupe. which is what if I had the money I would love to own one day. Of all Dinos they are the most affordable to buy. I had the opportunity a couple of years ago to have a few drives (as a passenger) in a Ferrari Dino 246GT and it still is my all time favourite driving experience I have ever had. The engine sound right… Read more »
Beautiful Dino. But didn’t I see a prancing horse?
In Anthony Curtis’s book “Ferrari Dino” it talks quite extensively to the Fiat-Dino. It was terrific to see Danny’s Fiat-Dino. All the stories on Petrolicious are inspiring. Thanks again for the best car-aholic site yet
Great story and a great car. It’s the sort of car that oozes cool regardless of which manufacturer made it. Love the comment about it being built for Italian gigolos. :
Just the nicest Fiat ever!
I think the story behind the Dino Ferraris and Fiats is amazing. I have to say, on Dino’s behalf, going out creating an engine that would be used in cars such as the Lancia Stratos, Ferrari 246, and of course, the Fiat Dino you see here, is not only a show of great engineering at your end, but a show of how you changed history. Out of your tragic death came some of the most sought after, beautiful, and generally wonderful cars that’ve ever been made. So, from me, thank you, Dino. You changed the world.
This the kind of car articles i love. It shows a man with passion about the car he loves soo much..not some sit a home wannabe who regurgitates everything they see on Topgear ( i like the show but damn come up with your own opinions) I got to see a red Fiat Dino at the 2013 Hershey car show and it was getting alot of buzz for sure 🙂 a real italian classic!
Neat Car, Great Guy, Wise philosophy….I learned something today. Would love to meet Danny.
Petrolicious is like going to a car show. There you meet someone that has an interesting car. So you stop and you spend some time talking to them about their car and what ends up being something about their lives. Every Tuesday we are afforded this chance to do this on the net. Today we met Danny and his Dino. If it wasn’t for Petrolicious I would never get to meet Danny. But today I did. Thanks to Danny and the entire crew at Petrolicious. Great car, wonderful person, and the best site on the net for car people. Keep… Read more »
I couldn’t have sung the praises any better myself, Jim. Thanks to Danny and Dino, and thank you very much Petrolicious.
