Sotheby's Sealed - The Daytona Prototype

The Daytona Prototype sits precisely in the middle of two of Ferrari’s most significant models; the 275 GTB/4 and the 365 GTB/4.

Mechanically and aesthetically, it remains unique yet instantly recognizable as the transition between the two models. Combining a one-off powerplant and styling that echoes elements of both the standard production 275 GTB/4 and 365 GTB/4, it offers the very best of both cars with its own fascinating story to tell. Shown at only a handful of select events since the completion of its restoration, it would surely be welcomed with open arms at a number of the world’s most celebrated events due to its fascinating place in Ferrari history. Chassis number 10287’s significance simply cannot be understated, and it would be a highlight of any Ferrari collection worldwide.
