You’ll probably never come across a Ferrari 365 GTS/4 “Daytona” Spider in such an immaculate state. While over 1,200 of preceding GTB/4-designated coupes were produced from 1968 and 1973, a mere 122 examples of the GTS/4—all Spider convertibles—rolled out of Maranello between 1971 and 1973.
Auxietre & Schmidt, a high-end classic car dealer with hubs in Versaille and Munich, has a 1971 model on offer. All Prancing Horses from the 365 series are sought-after for their rarity and track-bred roots. The vehicles are famously referred to as Daytonas in honor of the three race cars from which they’re derived, which secured a 1-2-3 finish at the 1967 24 Hours of Daytona.
But this example is particularly collectible, as its 4.4-liter, six-carburetor, V12 five-speed transaxle and every other component it recently underwent a bare metal restoration at the hands of classic Ferrari experts.
The Pininfarina-designed lines are even dressed in the factory-original Bianco Polo Park white finish, a livery that was only ordered on seven Daytona Spiders.
Auxietre & Schmidt is selling this 1971 Ferrari 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spider complete with extensive records and photos that add color to a rich provenance, which includes ownership by a Saudi prince and numerous other private collectors. Click here to learn more.
