Red 1970 Ferrari Daytona 365 GTS/4     "Miami Vice" Replica    

Exotic Coachcraft Ferrari Daytona Spider Turnkey Replica - SOLD!

This most authentic replica of the 1970 Ferrari 365 GTS/4 is better known as the Ferrari Daytona Spider of "Miami Vice" fame. From 1969 to 1973, Ferrari produced only 122 of these V12 powered convertibles, and they are among the most sought-after Ferraris ever. In the 1980s, at the height of their popularity, mint condition Daytona Spiders sold for more than one million dollars. The Daytona's soaring fame and extremely small supply spawned both clones and a series of replicas in the 1980s. Many owners of the Berlinetta coupe version of the Daytona sliced the top off of their GTB so it would look like the rare GTS convertible. Replica fiberglass Daytona bodies have been fitted to many different donor chassis. Perhaps the most famous of the replicas is the Corvette-based Exotic Coachcraft Daytona Spider before you today. In the private collection of car connoisseur in Naples Florida, it was just sold after twenty years of ownership.

One of the these Spider replicas was Sonny Crockett's undercover ride for the first two seasons of the hit TV show Miami Vice. Few Spiders remain in as good condition as this one. With less than 200 miles since its engine upgrade in 2005, this car features the corsa rossa paint and Borrani-style wire wheels that were hallmarks of the true Ferrari Daytona Spider. Built on a 1980 Corvette chassis and drive train, the car now has a new ZZR 350 cubic inch small block Chevrolet engine similar to the ZR1 and Turbo 400 automatic transmission. This Exotic Coachcraft Daytona Spider is a fitting tribute to one of the most beautiful cars ever made.

This Ferrari Daytona Spider re-creation was built by Exotic Coachcraft. The Daytona Spider replica is best known for its role as the high profile ride of Crockett and Tubbs on the very popular TV series Miami Vice starring Don Johnson, and for good reason as these cars are meant to be driven and enjoyed instead of being stored. Built on the very capable 1980 Corvette chassis and utilizing the drivetrain, suspension and brakes make driving and maintaining these cars a breeze. This car runs and drives well and has been maintained throughout the years. It boasts genuine Ferrari parts and Zenith 15 inch knock off style wire wheels.

The Ferrari Daytona, officially designated the Ferrari 365 GTB/4, is a two-seat grand tourer produced by Ferrari from 1968 to 1973. The 365 GTS/4 Spider is the convertible version. The "S" in GTS refers to the Spider convertible. The "B" in GTB refers to the Berlinetta hardtop. Italians named it "Spider" rather than the more common place "Spyder" spelling. The unofficial Daytona name is reported to have been applied by the media rather than Ferrari and commemorates Ferrari's 1-2-3 finish in the February 1967 24 Hours of Daytona. Replicas are even rarer than originals. The last replica on record sold at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale 35th Anniversary Auction in 2006 with No Reserve at a Price of $47,300.00.

In September of 1968, Ferrari GTB/4 Daytona Prototype #11929 was produced as the 4th of 6 prototypes, and was the very first Daytona built by Carrozzerria Scaglietti in the final Daytona production style. From that point on, every Daytona was built by Scaglietti. Later that same month #11929 was tested at the Ferrari Factory track in Modena, achieving the highest speed of any production car in the world, at a reported speed of 300 km/h. In the spirit of the Ferrari tradition of passing prototypes on to Ferrari team race car drivers, #11929 was reportedly given to Ignazio Giunti. Ignazio Giunti won the infamous Sebring 12 Hour campaign for Ferrari with team mate Mario Andretti in 1970, but in January of 1971, he was tragically killed in a car crash during a race in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Historians confirm that #11929 was then converted to its current “spider” configuration sometime in the later 1970s by Carrozzerria Auto Sport of Italy, given its distinctive, high-quality conversion characteristics.

Only 121 (or 122 if you include the prototype) factory-made spiders were ever produced, of which 7 are right hand drive.

The Cannonball Baker Sea-To-Shining-Sea Memorial Trophy Dash, also referred to simply as the "Cannonball Run" was an unofficial, unsanctioned automobile race from New York City to the Portofino Inn in Redondo Beach, California. A remarkable effort was made by American racing legend Dan Gurney, winner of the 1967 24 hours of Le Mans. He and Brock Yates as co-driver took 35 hours and 54 minutes to travel the 2,863 miles. They won the Cannonball in a Ferrari Daytona. Gurney was famously quoted as saying, "At no time did we exceed 175 mph." The Daytona remained the fastest production car on the road for the next decade.

The Italians spell it "Spider," and everyone else spells it "Spyder." The reason for this? There is no "y" in the Italian alphabet. So while the rest of us have all adopted this odd term - "Spyder" - the Italians spell it "Spider" since their alphabet doesn't give them the letters for "Spyder." So if you're ever writing out a car name with "Spider" or "Spyder" in the title and you're not sure whether it's spelled with a "y" or an "i," you can generally rely on the rule that Italian cars are with an "i," and everyone else is with a "y."

Early Daytonas featured fixed headlights behind an acrylic glass cover. A new U.S. safety regulation banning headlights behind covers resulted in retractable pop-up twin headlights in 1971. This is an exact replica of the 1970 Ferrari 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spider built on a C3 Corvette chassis with a 350hp ZZ4 Corvette engine as seen in the NBC hit 1980's TV series "Miami Vice" with Don Johnson and the movie "The Rookie" With Clint Eastwoood In 1990.

It has a long, long nose with two very subtle flush deck hot air relief vents. The originals had the headlights fixed in place and showing through plexiglass but those wouldn’t meet US standards so for the US ugly popups were used with US legal headlamps. Ferrari worried so much that Americans would feel “cheated” that they didn’t get the full width Plexiglass strip between the headlights on the European model that they added a silver band across the front, sort of simulating the strip but finally just made that portion body color.

The body, though designed by Pininfarina, was still built the old fashioned way by Scaglietti, most of them in steel with aluminum doors, bonnet, and boot lid, although later in the production run the doors were changed to steel, and bracing struts added to suit US laws. All components of the Exotic Coachcraft body are manufactured of reinforced fiberglass.

As is usual with Ferrari, the open car came later, in this case almost a year later, as the 365 GTS4, premiered at the 1969 Frankfurt Show. It kept most of the body style from the waist down. There was also a one off targa made with a roof rollover bar similar to the Porsche targa and a retractable plastic rear window. The spider was so popular it took 10 per cent of Daytona model sales. Ferrari couldn’t meet demand and shops like that of Richard Straman in Costa Mesa, CA cut dozens of coupes into spiders.

How does the Exotic Coachcraft Daytona compare to the original? Ferrari Daytona owners are impressed by the speed, and the roar of the engine but don’t care for the fact you have to wait for the car to get warm or else you’ll damage the gears in the rear mounted gearbox. And the steering is very stiff, and there is no power steering. So the original is a brute of a car to drive around town. Tune ups required adjusting multiple carburetors, two distributors, two oil filters and changing 17 quarts of oil. The Daytona replica has no such exotic car drawbacks. It can be serviced at any Chevrolet dealer for the price of a Corvette tuneup and oil change. It has the good manners of a comfortable car around town, and the power to take on any exotic over the open road.
