The Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona was introduced in 1968 at the Paris Motor Show as the replacement model for the 275 GTB/4. The 'Daytona' name was in reference to Ferrari's 1-2-3 win at the Daytona 24 hour race in 1967.

The Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona was powered by a 4.4 litre V12 engine equipped with 6 downdraft Weber carburetors. This engine developed 352 horsepower @ 7,500 rpm, and 318 lb-ft of torque @ 5,500 rpm. Mated to a 5 speed manual gearbox driving the rear wheels it was capable of launching the car to 60 mph in just 5.4 seconds. The top speed was in excess of 175 mph. At the time of its introduction the Daytona was one of the fastest production cars in the world. It also had a few impressive party tricks. It could do 70 mph in reverse, 86 mph in second gear, and 140 mph in fourth!

Under the Pininfarina-styled aerodynamic body lay an oval-section, tubular steel frame. And although the 365 GTB/4 Daytona was quite heavy at 1600 kgs (3530 lbs), its power more than made up for the added weight.

The suspension of the Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona consisted of fully independent units with wishbones and coil springs.

Inside the Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona the traditional Ferrari quality was evident, and electric windows came as standard. Air conditioning was an option.

In total a little over 1400 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytonas were sold. 165 of these were convertible (Spider) 365 GTS/4 models. These were converted from the coupe to the open top model by Scaglietti, the body manufacturers. There were also around 5 competition cars manufactured. These had up to 450 horsepower and several weight-saving modifications.

The Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona was the last model to come from the manufacturer before Enzo Ferrari sold the company to Fiat.
