Every Ferrari is, to a greater or lesser extent, a ‘landmark’ car, but few of Maranello’s road models have captured the imagination 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 coach-builder’s work for Maranello.
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, it 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 158 RHD Berlinetta models and 7 Spyder convertibles had been made when production ceased in 1973.
