The Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Speciale: the Daytona Spider prototype.

Vehicle Overview

The Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Speciale, colloquially known as the Daytona Spider, is a legendary vehicle that emerged from Ferrari’s collaboration with the importer Luigi Chinetti to cater to the demands of the North American market. In response to Chinetti’s requests, Ferrari presented the Daytona Spider version in 1969, maintaining the mechanical excellence of the coupé variant. The genesis of the Daytona Spider can be traced back to the 1969 Paris Motor Show, where Pininfarina showcased a prototype bearing chassis number 12925 and engine number 251. This prototype, although initially resembling a “targa” body style, was actually a faux-cabriolet—a faux open car. It boasted a striking satin aluminum roll-bar and a soft top covered with vinyl cloth, exuding a distinctive aesthetic that captured the attention of enthusiasts and critics alike. Despite generating considerable interest at the Paris Motor Show, the production of the Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Speciale Daytona Spider version was delayed for several years following the presentation of the prototype. However, when it finally made its debut, the Daytona Spider lived up to the lofty expectations set by its predecessor, delivering a thrilling driving experience and showcasing Ferrari’s unwavering commitment to automotive excellence. Today, the Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Speciale Daytona Spider remains an iconic symbol of Ferrari’s rich heritage and engineering prowess. Its rarity, distinctive design, and unrivaled performance continue to captivate automotive enthusiasts and collectors worldwide, cementing its status as a true classic in the pantheon of legendary Ferraris.
