PRICE ON REQUEST
At the end of 60’s, Ferrari isn’t at its best. Ferrari’s financial independence has been compromised after arguing with Ford, and it’s finally Fiat that will become a Ferrari Spa shareholder.
Ford, deceived, attacks Ferrari in endurance and causes a real humiliation at Le Mans in consecutive years.
And if it was not enough, its fiery neighbour, Ferruccio Lamborghini, will beat it on the road with the very innovative and spectacular Miura.
It is in this context that Ferrari 365 GTB/4 was revealed in Paris Motor Show in 1968. Its classicism (front engine) will be its best asset to turn it into Maranello’s great classic. Then Miura should better behave itself because Ferrari P4 hat-trick will erase Le Mans disgrace facing Ford. Ferrari was back, and the public will give 365 GTB/4 its Daytona nickname.
Daytona, yet classic and criticized since its debut compares to more innovative Lamborghini Miura, will turn with time into a true classic car. With its sublime line, its V12 with unparalleled soul, its always so exceptional performances even years after, represent long-term GT’s archetype. Race versions had proven their capacities and today make passionate and informed collector’s happiness. Now it’s your turn to be seduced by the Beauty!
