Own A Piece Of Italian Automotive History With Ferrari’s 365 GTB/4 Prototype

Sep 24, 2020

Ferrari’s GTB/4 is unequivocally one of the most elite and significant sports cars in all of automotive history, as evidenced by the Italian V-12 occupying several spots on the list of the most expensive cars ever sold. And, while every GTB/4 specimen is extremely noteworthy and valuable, one of the original prototype examples has recently surfaced for sale on the private market.

One of four prototypes built and one of two specimens presented at the 1968 at the Paris Auto Salon to debut the new 365 GTB/4, this successor to the 275 GTB/4 was the fastest (and most costly) Ferrari had ever produced upon its release. Constructed by automotive legend, Carrozzeria Scaglietti, this lefthand-drive example was utilized by the Prancing Horse as a test mule, and reportedly was able to achieve speeds of over 175mph. After its testing duties were complete, this prototype was gifted to a Ferrari Works driver, before being converted to its current Spyder configuration in the 1970s. Today this ’67 specimen remains in immaculate condition and starts as a significant piece of Ferrari’s illustrious history. This 1967 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Spyder Prototype is currently for sale through England’s SPORTS CLASSIC LONDON where the price is available upon request.
