FERRARI 365 GTS4 – THE DAYTONA SPYDER

Launched in 1969, the Ferrari 365 GTS4 is more commonly referred to as the Daytona, even if Ferrari does not recognize this as an official name. The moniker was reportedly given to the model after Ferrari’s podium sweep of the 1967 24 Hours of Daytona. As the convertible version of the 365 GTB4, the Daytona we are talking about today is the sun-lover’s choice for classic Ferrari grant touring excellence.

A CLASSIC RECIPE FOR STRIKING PERFORMANCE

Compared to rival Lamborghini’s new mid-engined Miura, the Ferrari Daytona represented an older grand-tourer design philosophy. The front-engine, rear-drive setup was a familiar formula by this time. And while it may have dissuaded some buyers away from the new Ferrari GT car, it wouldn’t take long for the world to fall in love.

That front-mounted engine was a 4.4-litre V12 that generated an impressive 347bhp (259 kW). All of that power meant the Daytona was one of the fastest cars on Earth, with a top speed of 280 km/h (174 mph). Meanwhile, a rear-mounted manual gearbox ensured that Daytona drivers enjoyed perfect weight balance. Style and substance – it’s really no wonder this car engendered such affection that reviewers decided to give it its own nickname.

A FRESH DESIGN

Like the GTB4, the GTS4 used Pininfarina’s new angular design language that represented a departure from its predecessors. The early-60s design language of those previous GT cars, including the Ferrari 365 GTC, couldn’t have looked more different. The gorgeous new lines are no doubt one reason the Ferrari Daytona has become such an icon today. And while early models used headlight covers, U.S. models manufactured after 1971 were fitted with pop-up headlights due to safety regulations.

ONE HIGHLY DESIRABLE SUPERCAR

At £10,000 new, the Ferrari Daytona was one of the most expensive cars on the planet when it was first sold. In fact, it was the most expensive Ferrari ever sold up to that point. Not much has changed today. With a spectacularly low 122 total GTS4 models sold, this is one of the rarest and highest-valued Ferraris you can find. That’s why you can expect to pay between £1 and £2 million ($1.3 to $2.6 million) for an average good-condition Ferrari Daytona GTS4 on the market currently.
