1972 (March) Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona
Right Hand Drive: UK Supplied
Ex FOC Concours Winner
It was at the Paris Auto Salon in 1968 that the new Ferrari 365 GTB/4 was first displayed.
The successor to the 275 GTB/4, it was then the most expensive and fastest street Ferrari
ever built. The prototype shown at the Paris Salon was designed and built by Pininfarina,
and it is evident in the glorious lines. The Daytona, as it was to be known (in recognition of Ferrari’s one-two-three win at the 24-hour race the previous year), had aggressive, bold and yet handsome lines with the performance to match
When driving the Ferrari, one gets the feeling that it is strong, powerful and bold and at 3600 plus pounds it was the heaviest to come from the Ferrari drawing boards. Although weight does not seem to bother handling, and the excellent horsepower and torque give the Daytona the aggressive performance to match its bold looks. As the last of the line of great front-engined V12 berlinettas, the Daytona holds a special appeal for Ferrari enthusiasts. In many ways, it is the most “macho” of the Ferraris and its popularity is reflected in the fact that the Daytona has become one of the most desirable Ferraris of all time.
