The Ferrari 365 GTB/4, better known by the unofficial name Ferrari Daytona, is a grand tourer automobile produced from 1968 to 1973. It was first introduced to the public at the Paris Auto Salon in 1968.
The unofficial Daytona name is reported to have been applied by the media rather than Ferrari and commemorates Ferrari’s 1-2-3 finish in the February 1967 24 Hours of Daytona.
The Daytona is a traditional front-engined, rear-drive car. The engine, known as the Tipo 251, was a 4.4 L DOHC V12 with a 60° bank angle, 365 cc per cylinder, featuring six Weber twin carburettors. It produced 357 PS and could reach 280 km/h. 0-60 mph (97 km/h) acceleration was just 5.4 seconds.
The five-speed manual transmission (of the transaxle concept) was mounted in the rear for optimal weight distribution, and a four-wheel independent suspension featured wishbones and coil springs.
Although it was also a Pininfarina design, as with many previous Ferrari road cars (by Leonardo Fioravanti), the 365 GTB/4 was radically different with sharp-edged styling. The early Daytonas featured fixed headlights behind an acrylic glass cover.
The generally accepted total number of Daytonas from the Ferrari club historians is 1,406 over the life of the model. This figure includes 156 UK right-hand-drive coupés, 122 factory-made spyders (of which 7 are right hand drive), and 15 competition cars in three series with modified lightweight bodies and in various degrees of engine tune. All bodies except the first Pininfarina prototype were produced by Italian coachbuilder Scaglietti.
This Daytona was originally delivered in Italy and is since 1976 registered in the Netherlands. The car is certified by Ferrari and comes with the Ferrari certificate and full documentation. It has an original plexinose. Furthermore this Ferrari was fitted with new tires, new H.V.L. leater interior, new exhaust and working a/c.
