Description

Registration Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: 23941
Ferrari is sensitive to criticism and to intimations of lack of prestige. The Maserati and Lamborghini factories in and near Modena had already put into production sophisticated mid-engined cars while Ferrari was still selling the Daytona as its premier sports car. Unquestionably the Maserati Bora and the Lamborghini Miura were stealing sales from Ferrari and so, to achieve superiority in this state of the art sector, Ferrari developed a new car from scratch. The engine was a 4.4 litre flat 12 cylinder unit derived from Ferrari‘s then Formula One engine, whilst coachwork was a sleek and aggressive berlinetta design by Pininfarina. Driving the new car, the Boxer, was a special treat. Compared with the Daytona it was light, responsive with far more forgiving handling. However, like the Daytona, it had an abundance of power and demanded the utmost in concentration from its driver were its outer limits to be explored.
