This Ferrari Daytona art is pure seducer
If you ask someone from Maranello about the Daytona, he`ll add that its name is Ferrari 365 GTB/4. Well, the Daytona name has emerged after its 1-2-3 win at the 24 Hours of Daytona in 1967. Although Scuderia Ferrari has never raced this car, Enzo Ferrari sold few competition prepared cars to private teams. They enjoyed particular success in the 24 Hours of Le Mans with GT class wins in 1972, 1973 and 1974.
It was because the legendary Colombo V12 equipped with 6 twin Weber carburetors, good enough for 352 hp. The maximum speed was 174 mph/280 kmh and zero to 100 kmh acceleration of just 5.4 seconds which is quite spectacular even for the modern standards. But the biggest asset of this car was its styling. Penned by Leonardo Fioravanti during his Pininfarina days, he created timeless automotive sculpture subject to aerodynamics.
