The story of the Ferrari Daytona is a well-known one which is nonetheless recounted elsewhere amongst these pages. In the word of one enthusiast, ‘There is no greater adrenalin pump’. With its brutally aggressive yet somehow classically elegant lines and such a wonderful 4.4 litre four-cam V12 under its bonnet, there was nothing that could challenge it when new and precious little that can do so today. True, such cars have never been that easy to drive or particularly practical to use regularly, but then again the best things in life always demand a little more commitment. Indeed a motor car such as the Daytona, once mastered, can provide thrills beyond its owner’s wildest expectations.
Yet even more exhilarating is the ultra rare convertible version of the Daytona, the Spyder (or GTS/4, in traditional Ferrari jargon), which was built in only 125 units
