Published By

If you live in a country where you drive on the right hand side of the road, there are limited options when it comes to getting your hands on a vintage right-hand-drive Ferrari. If you happen to be in the market for a RHD classic from Prancing Horse, you’re in luck. This 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Berlinetta is one of only 158 total Daytona examples to feature RHD in existence.

Even better, this particular right-hand-drive Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona is in excellent condition and available for sale. It retains its original numbers-matching engine, transaxle, and body. Even the Argento Auteuil exterior finish and Nuvola leather interior are correct to the original factory records.

In the early days of Ferrari, Enzo built his vision, brand, and reputation on front-engine, V12-powered cars. Sadly, the 365 GTB/4 was the last front-V12-engined, two-seater Ferrari to be built. This ended a Ferrari tradition that traced back to the inception of the prestigious Italian supercar company.

The timeless body of the 365 Daytona was designed by the legendary Leonardo Fioravanti of Pininfarina. Instantly recognizable worldwide, the 365 Daytona body design epitomizes charming elegance with mischievous curiosity. It is an example of automotive sports car design royalty.

As is the case with pretty much every Ferrari ever built, the real pleasure of this car is driving it. Fire up the Ferrari V12 and listen to the purr of the quad-cam engine design. If that doesn’t make you want to hear the 365 GTB/4 at wide-open throttle, you might not be a gearhead.

At the time, the Ferrari 365 GTB/4 was one of the most powerful production cars ever produced. If you want proof, look no further than the very first winners of the legendary Cannonball Run. Dan Gurney and Brock Yates raced behind the wheel of a 365 GTB/4, going from New York City to Los Angeles in only 36 hours, to claim the checkered flag. Of course, that goes without saying, don’t try this at home.

Then again, if you emerge as the winning bidder for this particular 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Berlinetta, it’s really your call as to whether you go on a Cannonball Run or not. If you are prepared to deal with putting that many hard miles on a collector’s car, you can probably afford the other potential consequences as well.

With approximately 66,449 miles on the odometer, it’s clear this is a vintage Ferrari that people love to drive. If you can think of a more delightful way to spend a summer afternoon than sitting behind the wheel of this Ferrari, you are probably more of a picnic person than a motorhead.
