The world-famous Daytona name was unofficially conjured up by the press in recognition of the firms stunning 1-2-3 victory at 1967's Daytona 24 Hours and - the fact that it was the last front-engined Ferrari GT before the Fiat years also means it occupies a special place in Maranello history. The Daytona was a stopgap model between Ferrari's outgoing 275 GTB/4 and their mid-engined 365 GT4 Berlinetta Boxer, the development of which was running well behind schedule. Influenced by the fact they were beginning to suffer a number of financial problems, Ferrari decided to produce what was essentially an updated version of an existing model. However, despite the troubled background to its inception, Daytona's themselves were in no way affected. Ferrari produced what became the definitive GT of its time. The Daytona's motor is essentially an enlarged Tipo 226 60 V12 from the previous 275 GTB/4 and is designated Tipo 251. They have a displacement of 4.4-litres producing 352bhp at 7500rpm. At the time the Daytona became the world's fastest production car with a top speed of 175mph and 0-60 in 5.3 seconds - enough to eclipse every other manufacturer, even Lamborghini. Pininfarina designed the Daytona's bodywork exuding power from every angle. As a result the Daytona remains one of the most jaw-dropping GT's to this day. The 365 GTB/4 was launched during October 1968's Paris Salon and won enormous praise. It was the fastest production road car available and would be the last of Ferrari's front-engined GT's, a fact not lost on writers at the time. Relatively few official options were available, just wider Cromodora alloys, spoked Borrani wires, front bumper bars and air conditioning having been on the upgrade list. After two years Pininfarina carried out a front-end make-over resulting in retractable headlights in early-1971. As production went on, Ferrari made changes to the indicator lenses, later cars more often than not coming with exclusively orange items whereas earlier examples tended to get combination lenses. There was also a switch from aluminum to steel doors (these providing a little more side impact protection) and the arrival of a smaller-diameter leather-rimmed steering wheel. Production ceased in late 1973 to make way for the overdue mid-Flat-12-engined 365 GT4 Berlinetta Boxer. By this time, Ferrari had completed 1284 GTB/4's, 158 of which were right-hand drive and came to the UK. This desirable, late production, European specification "Daytona" was ordered in November 1972 to Duncan Hamilton & Co Ltd, through of course, Maranello Concessionaires. Originally specified in Giallo Fly with a Nero interior, the order was amended to Rosso Rubino over Beige leather as confirmed by early correspondence in the significant history file. As such, production was delayed and the car would not be delivered until June 1973.The car was registered in the name of its first keeper in August 1973, Mr Jon Bosomworth of Shipley, Yorkshire. Bosomworth would keep the car for just over a year, but in that time use the car regularly. Immensely usable as a Daytona is, he would cover some 18,000 miles before selling the car to its second owner, also from Yorkshire. Mr Harrison recalled his purchase of the Daytona from Bosomworth in a letter (included in the file) some years later, dated July 1988. " I bought the car about November 1974 when it was only two years old and had an indicated mileage of 18,000. It had only one owner and appeared to be in first class condition. I thought the mileage was high for a Ferrari, so did not doubt it was genuine. "Mr Harrison retained the car for 11 years. During his ownership the car was initially cared for by his personal race mechanic Jack, who had previously cared for a number of Harrison's cars including a Type 51 Bugatti and blown 2.3 Castagna Alfa Romeo. Care of the car would move to Bob Houghton whilst he worked for GrayPaul Ferrari. In 1980, Harrison sent the car to Nick Shrigley Feigl who carried out a complete rebuild of the car. Harrison's '88 letter referenced the car was an unusual plum colour at the time of purchase and so, at the time of the complete rebuilt, the car would be taken back to bare metal and refinished in the Blu Metallizato it presents in today. Using the car less and less often, Harrison sold the car via a London broker to Mr Duce in 1985 with a little over 41,000 miles. The Daytona joined a small collection of pre-war sports cars and was used sparingly throughout his ownership. In fact, in 1990 when DK Engineering first saw the car, and took it part-exchange against an alloy 275, it had covered just 45,500 miles. When we took the car in at that time, we carried out a general service as well as tending to several other issues; the shock absorbers were replaced front and rear, an overhaul of the suspension was carried out and new wheels and tyres were fitted.
