The first cars to bear the name of Enzo Ferrari appeared only 60 years ago, but in that time they have built a legend for delivering uncompromising performance from their V12 power units whilst clothed in some of the most exciting and elegant Italian coachwork designs. From the earlier 275 GTB/4 a natural development was the larger engined 365 GTB/4 (commonly known as the Daytona after the 1-2-3 victory in the 24 hour race of 1967) and this was the swansong for the successful front-engined berlinetta series.
The Pininfarina designed, Scaglietti-built body of the 365 GTB/4 coupe was deliberately styled to look aggressive and the uncompromising mechanical specification ensured its success in the very demanding sports car market.
