Ferrari 365 GTB4 Daytona Prototype Rosso Corsa 1967 1:18
During the mid-1960s, work started up on a successor to the Type 275 GTB. After Ferrari achieved an incredible success by taking first, second and third places at Daytona in 1967, (against very stiff competition in the shape of the Ford GT40), Enzo Ferrari decided to christen the new sports car the "Daytona". Around the end of the year, this first prototype was completed on a chassis for the Ferrari GTB4, powered by a Type 243 4.4 litre V12 engine with a three valve cylinder head (the only known engine of this type). Based on tests with this prototype, the Daytona series was created in 1968 with body styling by Pininfarina. A Tecnomodel 1:18 scale resin model.
