The modern Ferrari’s are impressive Supercars, they are fast, light and they are technologically advanced.

But, for my taste nothing beats the classics, and the 1971 Ferrari 365 GTB-4 Daytona Berlinetta is surely one of them. This beautiful, legendary sports car comes with power, sleek lines, and visual appeal. I remember the 1st time I saw one, Wow…
The 1971 Ferrari 365 GTB-4 Daytona Berlinetta boasts 357 hp, 4.4-liter Tipo V12 engine, while paired seamlessly with a rear-mounted 5-speed transaxle, good for a top speed of 172 mph.
At the time the Daytona was the fastest production car in the world when it was made.
This Daytona full body and running gear restoration in Y 2014 that included new suspension, braking, and steering updates, it has just 52,000 miles on the odometer.
To make driving the Daytona at low speed less difficult, an EZ electric power steering unit was installed on this example.
The original steering components including the steering wheel are included with the car, should the next owner choose to revert this car to its original specification. The EZ electric power steering unit is speed sensitive and cuts off above 25mph, and additionally has a switch in case the driver does not want it operational.
The interior is for the most part original.
Only 12 Daytona’s were liveried in Giallo Dino.
This car (s/n. 14203, engine no. B996) is featured in this year’s Bonham’s auction at Quail Lodge in Carmel, California on 19 August 2016.
Price estimate: $600,000 – 750,000
Have a terrific week
