There may not be a logo as iconic as the Ferrari stallion, and when it sits on the nose of the 1971 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spider you’ll be gasping for O2 as it screams by. The build is sleek, mean, all things Ferrari and one of only 121 Spiders built from 1968 and 1973.
The engine borrowed the 4.4-liter, six-carburetor, and V-12 engine from Ferrari’s racing lineage with the addition of a five-speed transaxl for ultimate control and handling. Under the hood the stallion could and more often than not, ramp up to 352 hp with 318 foot-pounds of torque. And because we’re driving the Spider (convertible) the feeling of your hair blowing in the wind is something most can only dream of.
Beyond the raw power and ability to hug corners at speed, as almost pushing dirt and gravel aside to grip the road, this ‘71 Daytona Spider glimmers in the sunlight with it’s Bianco Polo Park paint job. The blonde leather with Rosso inserts adds to the elegance and truly stamps the Prancing Horse status symbol.
If you had the option to dive deep into the Ferrari collection and choose just one car, this 1971 Daytona Spider should sit atop the list of options. Or if you’ve just been saving up for that rainy day purchase, Auxietre & Schmidt has this rare beast on the showroom floor.
