This was the last and greatest of all the front-engined, rear-wheel drive two-seater Ferrari's and some purists regard it as one of the best Ferraris of all time. The Daytona, model name 365GTB/4, oozed style with its Pininfarina body with long hood that hid a quad-cam VI2 fed by six Weber carburettors. To balance out the huge engine, the gearbox was mounted at the rear in the transaxle, giving near perfect 52:48 weight distribution. As with many Ferraris of the era, the Daytona used double wishbone suspension and anti-roll bars both ends, and had vented discs to cope with the enormous speed it was capable of. The chassis was a multi-lube affair hidden by a steel body but with alloy doors, hood and trunk lid. For 1970 this was the fastest car in the world; in fact, it remained that way for years, because 100mph (160km/h) could arrive in under 13 seconds.
