Hexagon Classics are delighted to offer this significant Ferrari 365/4 Daytona, which has enjoyed a fully documented history and has recently been inspected and passed for Ferrari Classiche certification.
Our car was purchased new from Maranello Concessionaires Ltd in July 1972 for £10,072 by D. Dobbie denizen of Bonhard House, Perth, who then sold the Daytona to rock music legend Sir Elton John. Sir Elton enjoyed owning the Daytona for two years before re-selling it. The car’s history files stretch back from the original new car purchase order right through to recent Ferrari maintenance. MOT certificates from 1977 onwards accompany the bulging history files.
Thoroughbred and Classics Cars magazine wrote about the car, “Has this dream come true in, say 1972, I’d have been the proud owner of a Ferrari 365 GTB/4. With its front-mounted V12 engine powering the rear wheels and clothed in suitably stunning steel, the Daytona is to many the ultimate Ferrari GT, the final incarnation of a bloodline that stretched back via the 275 and 250 to Enzo Ferrari’s first road cars.” They continued, “It’s diabolically beautiful, with stupefying proportions, that pin down the aesthetic senses, only for its deft and subtle detailing to coax them back… You’re left in no doubt that this was Ferrari’s ultimate expression of front-engined potency and performance. It has all the classic cues. The bonnet stretches endlessly with the cabin crouching behind it, submitting to the airstream with carefree bravado and, like a great work of art, the Daytona’s apparent simplicity is deceptive. In short, the Daytona is a masterpiece of the stylist’s art, and it’s beautifully built too.”
Having benefitted from significant recent expenditure, and Ferrari Classiche inspection, this wonderful Daytona is all ready to be enjoyed. Available to view at our London showroom.
