Ferrari Daytona history is interesting to discuss. Daytona is one of the best Ferrari models of all time. Even though the name has never been used in Ferrari literature or is unofficial, it is a successful successor to the 275 GTB / 4, which is excellent.
Ferrari took the rear differential from its predecessors and combined it with a 5-speed gearbox and all-around independent suspension.

It was first presented at the Paris Motorshow in October 1968, while at the Frankfurt Motorshow in September of the following year, the 365 GTS/4 Spider variant was introduced in the Ferrari Daytona history.
Pininfarina designed a perfect two-seat coupe body for the GTB/4 with a long hood, small cockpit, and short rear end.

Faired in headlights were replaced by pop-up units for the US and later all markets while a fresh style of alloy wheel, the new classic Ferrari five-spoke, was fitted.
A runaway success, 1,412 examples of the coupe, and 127 units of the spider (96 for the US & 31 for Europe) were built before production ended in 1973.
