1973 Ferrari Daytona

One of Ferrari’s most popular models debuted at the Paris Salon in 1968, soon acquiring the “Daytona” nickname. Pininfarina designed the fastback coupe, but the body was built by Scaglietti. Layout and chassis were essentially that of the former 275 GTB, but power came from the new twin-cam 4390cc V12 with six Weber carburetors that produced 352 horsepower. This made the Daytona the fastest production car in the world, capable of hitting 174 mph. It could run the quarter mile in 13.8 seconds and could accelerate to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds.

Even though the Daytona was ranked as Ferrari’s most costly production model up to that time, there were still more than 1,400 coupes produced over the full model run between 1968 and 1974. With four-wheel independent suspension, four wheel disc brakes and a five-speed transmission, this was truly the state-of-the-art super car of its time.

The model offered here is the last year of the Daytona Coupe and was in original paint until 1998. The engine< has been rebuilt by Fioranos Motorsports of Toronto. This car placed first in the Elkhart Lake Ferrari Nationals in 1991 and third at the Michigan Ferrari Nationals the following year. It is equipped with air conditioning, factory Borranis and power windows.
