It wasn’t all rainbows under the Fiat umbrella though, as Mr. Enzo Ferrari didn’t want the Stratos to compete with the Dino and had Fiat delay supplying the engines until absolutely necessary.

With his own nascent carrozzeria flourishing, Mr. Flaminio Bertoni fell in love with a young woman that his mother disapproved of. She wanted her son to marry a cousin instead.

Even as the world was turning away from the voluptuous forms of the post-war years, the 206 GT clung onto them.
