David Lee’s 1972 Dino Monza 3.6 Evo (Jay Leno’s Garage)

David Lee is creating 25 of these handcrafted Dinos powered by a Ferrari V8 engine.

Ferrari created the 1960s Dino as a smaller, more affordable way to get into one of their cars, so it wasn’t necessarily the fastest Prancing Horse out there. Nowadays, even the bigger 2.4-liter V6 in the Dino 246 GT is not at all impressive, nor fast by modern standards.

Lee calls his retro modification (look away purists) the “Dino Monza 3.6 Evo” and he’s gone to great lengths to make it look like a factory effort. It also features uprated Brembo brakes and it’s full of cool little details, like the badging on the back that looks factory or the 17-inch rims which are bigger replicas of the original 14-inch ones the car originally came with.

And the best part about it is that it doesn’t look like a modified car unless you look really closely. If you’re really into it and would like to have one of your own, you actually can as the shop that built it said it could supply a total of 50 examples over the span of two and a half years – no word on price yet, though, but don’t expect something like this to be in any way affordable.
