In 1967, the heart of the Ford/Ferrari Battle, the Ferrari P4s humiliated the factory Ford GT MKIIs at the Daytona 24h finishing 1-2-3, a fabulous victory and a revenge against the Ford’s famous victory at 1966 Le Mans 24h. When the new Ferrari appeared in 1968, the “365 GTB/4”, it was immediately given the unofficial nick name “Daytona” to celebrate this major racing achievement. Designed at Pininfarina by Leonardo Fioravanti, the new Ferrari was built on a 4,4liter 4 cams engine, transaxle transmission and a much modernised chassis compared to the 275 GTB/4. This very high performance Grand Toursim offers a lot of safety to its driver, especially at high speed due to a perfectly balanced weight. The 352 HP engine allowed the Daytona to run the standing km in only 24sec and 280km/h as top speed. This superb and iconic Ferrari was built from 1968 to 1973 in only 1284 example.
