1970 Ferrari Daytona 365 GTS/4
Red Exotic Coachcraft Ferrari Daytona Spider - SOLD!
This is a replica of the 1970 Ferrari 365 GTS/4, also known as the "Daytona Spider".
From 1969 to 1973, Ferrari produced only 122 of these V12 powered convertibles and they are among
the most sought-after Ferraris ever. In the 1980s, at the height of their popularity, mint condition
Daytona Spiders sold for more than one million dollars. The Daytona's soaring fame and extremely small
supply spawned both clones and a series of replicas in the 1980s. Many owners of the Berlinetta coupe
version of the Daytona sliced the top off of their GTB so it would look like the rare GTS convertible.
Replica fiberglass Daytona bodies have been fitted to many different donor chassis. Perhaps the most
famous of the replicas is the Corvette-based Exotic Coachcraft Daytona Spider before you today.
One of these Spider replicas was Sonny Crockett's undercover ride for the first two seasons of
the hit TV show Miami Vice. Few Spiders remain in as good condition as this one. With less than 200 miles
since its engine upgrade in 2005, this car features the Corsa Rossa paint and Borrani-style wire wheels that
were hallmarks of the true Ferrari Daytona Spider. Built on a 1980 Corvette chassis and drive train,
the car has a 350 cubic inch ZZR small block Chevrolet engine and Turbo 400 transmission. This pristine example
of the Exotic Coachcraft Daytona Spider is a fitting tribute to one of the most beautiful cars ever made.

This Ferrari Daytona Spider re-creation was built by Exotic Coachcraft. The Daytona Spider replica is best known
for its role as the high profile ride of Crockett and Tubbs on the very popular TV series Miami Vice
starring Don Johnson, and for good reason as these cars are meant to be driven and enjoyed instead of
being stored. Built on the very capable 1980 Corvette chassis and utilizing the drivetrain, suspension
and brakes make driving and maintaining these cars a breeze. This car runs and drives well and has been
maintained throughout the years with genuine Ferrari parts and Zenith 15 inch knock off style wire wheels.
The Ferrari Daytona, officially designated the Ferrari 365 GTB/4, is a two-seat grand tourer produced by
Ferrari from 1968 to 1973.
The 365 GTS/4 Spider is the convertible version, not to be confused with the spelling of the
Porsche Spyder. The unofficial Daytona name is reported to have been applied by the media rather than Ferrari
and commemorates Ferrari's 1-2-3 finish in the February 1967 24 Hours of Daytona.
Replicas are even rarer than originals. The last replica on record sold at the
Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale 35th Anniversary Auction in 2006 with No Reserve at a Price of $47,300.00.
The Cannonball Run was an unofficial, unsanctioned automobile race
from New York City to the Portofino Inn in Redondo Beach, California.
A remarkable effort was made by American racing legend Dan Gurney, winner of the 1967 24 hours of Le Mans.
He and Brock Yates as co-driver took 35 hours and 54 minutes to travel the 2,863 miles.
They won the Cannonball in a Ferrari Daytona. Gurney said, "At no time did we exceed 175 mph."
The Daytona remained the fastest production car on the road for the next decade.
Early Daytonas featured fixed headlights behind an acrylic glass cover. A new U.S. safety regulation banning
headlights behind covers resulted in retractable pop-up twin headlights in 1971. The car was also seen in the
movie "The Rookie" With Clint Eastwoood In 1990.
