History of the Model:
The GT4 was a ground-breaking model for Ferrari in several ways. It was the first production Ferrari to feature the mid-engined V8 layout and was the first production Ferrari under the touches of Bertone designed bodywork, penned by Marcello Gandini. Enzo himself took a major role in its design, going as far as having a mock-up made where he could sit int the car to test different steering, pedals and cockpit seating positioning. Niki Lauda was also a big help in setting up the chassis.
The styling featured angular lines entirely different from its curvaceous 2-seater brother, the Dino 246 and was controversial at the time. Some journalists compared it to the Bertone-designed Lancia Stratos and the Lamborghini Urraco, also penned by Marcello Gandini.
The chassis has a tubular spaceframe based on the Dino 246 and was stretched to make room for the second row of seats. The suspension is fully independent, with double wishbones, anti-roll bars, coaxial telescopic show absorbers and coil springs on both axles.
From the cockpit, the driver sees the road in front of him, an upright seating position, realistic trunk and back seat for soft luggage and a very easily accessed engine bay.
