In case you really want to own a piece of Ferrari’s racing history you can head over to the United Kingdom at Hexagon Classics and secure this rare 365 GTB/4 Competizione.
This classic Ferrari Daytona racer is certainly an eye-grabber, mostly due to its yellow paint scheme with an appropriate racing livery – number 91 on the door panels, along with Shell, Dunlop, Huer, and other racing sponsor stickers. The only catch is this particular Ferrari example never actually experienced the track – it’s just a fitting homage to racers of the past. Very few such unique models were produced at the Ferrari factory’s “Assistenza Clienti” department in Modena, Italy – this unit was manufactured back in 1973, complete with aluminum hood and boot lid, stretched flares around the wheel arches and wider wheels and tires.
Part of the second series of five examples, it was motivated by a 4.4-liter Colombo V12, reworked to deliver 450 horsepower (335 kilowatts) – chassis number 16935 was made into a Group 4 competition example around 2001. “It goes without saying that the Ferrari 365 GTB/4 has a unique story, ranging from styling to its racing pedigree and the origins of the name Daytona,” Paul Michaels, chairman of Hexagon Classics. “I have had the privilege of dealing with a lot of Daytona’s in the past and this particular recreation is one of the finest examples I have ever come across.”
