Italian cars are like no others on the road. Stereotypically they break down, cost a bomb and rust like there is no tomorrow but when they are working no other machine comes even close to provoking the emotions that they do. These cars are not about what they do, but how they make you feel. A very beautiful 1973 Ferrari Daytona with an illustrious history is up for auction and the lucky new owner is in for a real treat.
The Daytona gets its nameplate from Ferrari’s 1-2-3 victory in the endurance event of the same name. One of the most gorgeous cars to ever grace the roads this particular GT has been owned by Prince Charles, John Coombs and Max Mosely. The car also appeared on one of Top Gears infamous intercontinental races. This Ferrari Dayton has only covered 26,281 miles and amazingly produces the same 352BHP it did back when it was new. In addition to its rarity factor in that it is just one of 158 right-hand-drive models ever produced.
The Daytona is expected to fetch £180,000-£210,000 at the Historics (not a typo, just how they spell it) Brooklands Auction.
