Ferraris are expected to embody exquisite design, yet this isn’t always the case. Among the current modern Ferraris available for sale, only the Roma sparks mild interest, though it too exhibits aesthetic shortcomings.
I’m beginning to believe that the classic Ferraris of old exuded a timeless Italian design flair and beauty. The Ferrari 365 Daytona is a prime example of such a classic, resonating with enduring appeal. Its sleek lines stand in stark contrast to the bloated appearance plaguing many modern Ferraris.
The Ferrari 365 Daytona is powered by a 4.4-litre V12, quad-cam, dry sump, 6 Weber carburettor engine and outputs 350 bhp, paired with a 5-speed manual transmission that enables a 0-60 mph in an astonishing 5.4 seconds and a top speed of ultra-cool Italian design.
The UK-based classic car restoration business, Tyrrell’s Classic Workshop, provides an insightful overview of a 1960s Ferrari 365 Daytona, sparing us the effort. It’s definitely worth watching.
