Description

In 1968 Ferrari launched the 365 GTB/4, almost immediately, the press gave the 365 GTB/4 its ‘Daytona’ suffix, in celebration of Ferraris 1-2-3 finish in the 1967 24 Hours of Daytona. It was never officially called ‘Daytona’.

The new cars engine and handling certainly didn’t undermine its racing connection. The 4.4-litre, 4-cam V12 produced 352 bhp. Despite the 1633 kg bulk, the ‘Daytona’ was billed as the ‘fastest road car in the world’. Not only was 174 mph more than just pretty brisk, most importantly it was faster than the Miura. The 5-speed ZF gearbox was mounted with the axle at the rear for optimal weight distribution, and helped give the ‘Daytona’ predictable handling and solid road holding.

Although it was also a Pininfarina design, as with many previous Ferrari road cars the 365 GTB/4 was radically different. 

Early Daytona's featured fixed headlights behind an acrylic glass cover. This particular setup was completely abandoned in 1971 in favour of retractable pop-up twin headlights due to new safety regulations in the United States which outlawed headlights behind covers. Leonardo Fioravanti, designer, interviewed on TV car show had confirmed a popular rumor that it took him 7 days to design a Daytona.

Right-hand drive vehicles are rare with just 158 Coupe's produced for the UK market.

Although the Daytona had a disappointing start to its competition career, it soon found its niche as a solid-as-a-rock GP4 class-winner at Le Mans, Daytona and Sebring. Fifteen ‘Competition’ cars were produced by the factory, in three series of five cars at a time. They raced with great success right up to the mid-70s, winning the Tour de France Automobile outright in 1972, although the factory halted development work in 1973.

Background to this vehicle

One of just 158 RHD cars produced, this example was delivered new to the UK via Maranello Concessionaires Ltd on 1st August 1973 and registered as their Demonstrator on SPL 61M.

The original specification was Rosso Ferrari with Beige Leather, Dark Red Carpets and Air Conditioning.

Retaining its original Book Pack and Handbook, along with its full and complete tool kit, this example is presented in exceptional condition with much work undertaken over the years.

Registered in the Isle of Man in 1994, the owner returned to the UK in 1995 and re-registered the car here on his return.

 

Service History

Along with its original wallet and handbooks and its full and complete tool kit, 365BRO also comes with an enviable history file from new, with its first service invoice from 1973 and its first MOT Certificate in 1976 thereafter tracking the story of this car up until the present day.
