'It's a hard muscled thoroughbred. the Daytona - easily the most awesome and yet disciplined road-going Ferrari in that firm's brilliant quarter century of existence. The Daytona isn't fast – it's blinding. It will eat up a quarter-mile of asphalt in 13. 2 seconds at 110mph and scream out to 175mph - or it will slug through traffic at 1. 00rpm with the Sunday manners of a FIAT. It is the perfect extension of its driver. You can cut and weave through shuffling traffic with the agility of a halfback. or lope down the freeway with the piece of mind that comes from knowing you can contend with anyone's incompetence. To say. after you've driven it. that the Daytona is desirable doesn't begin to sum up your feelings - you would sell your soul for it. ' - Car & Driver. January 1970.
Every Ferrari is. to a greater or lesser extent. a 'landmark' car. but few of Maranello's road models have captured the imagination of Ferraristi like the 365 GTB/4. The ultimate expression of Ferrari's fabulous line of V12 front-engined sports cars. the 365 GTB/4 debuted at the Paris Salon in 1968. soon gaining the unofficial name 'Daytona' in honour of the sweeping 1. 2. 3 finish by the Ferrari 330P4 at that circuit in 1967. Pininfarina's Leonardo Fioravanti. later the famed Carrozzeria' director of research and development. was responsible for the influential shark-nosed styling. creating a package that restated the traditional 'long bonnet. small cabin. short tail' look in a manner suggesting muscular horsepower while retaining all the elegance associated with the Italian coachbuilder's work for Maranello. One of Pininfarina's countless masterpieces. the influential shark-nosed body style featured an unusual full-width transparent panel covering the headlamps. though this was replaced by electrically-operated pop-up lights to meet US requirements soon after the start of production in the second half of 1969. Fioravanti later revealed that the Daytona was his favourite among the many Ferraris he designed.
Although the prototype had been styled and built by Pininfarina in Turin. manufacture of the production version was entrusted to Ferrari's subsidiary Scaglietti in Modena. The Daytona's all-alloy. four-cam. V12 engine displaced 4. 90cc and produced its maximum output of 352bhp at 7. 00rpm. with 318lb/ft of torque available at 5. 00 revs. Dry-sump lubrication enabled it to be installed low in the oval-tube chassis. while shifting the gearbox to the rear in the form of a five-speed transaxle meant 50/50 weight distribution could be achieved. The all-independent wishbone and coil-spring suspension was a recent development. having originated in the preceding 275GTB. Unlike the contemporary 365GTC/4. the Daytona was not available with power steering. a feature then deemed inappropriate for a 'real' sports car. There was. however. servo assistance for the four-wheel ventilated disc brakes. Air conditioning was optional. but elsewhere the Daytona remained uncompromisingly focussed on delivering nothing less than superlative high performance.
At the time of its introduction in 1968 the Daytona was the most expensive production Ferrari ever and. with a top speed in excess of 170mph. was also the world's fastest production car. Deliveries commenced in the second half of 1969 and the Daytona would be manufactured for just four years; not until the arrival of the 456 GT in 1992 would Ferrari build anything like it again. Only about 400 Plexiglass cars had been made when production ceased in 1970 and these early examples have bacome the most sought after.
There are never that many Plexiglass Daytonas for sale. and genuine European cars are even Rarer and the German history from new of our car is very nice indeed. She is available for any inspection and We own our cars outright and any trades or exchanges are welcome. cars. watches. boats even!
