365 GTS 4 Daytona Spider
1971 / 1973
For a long time, the bow of the future 365 GTB/4 was too close to the Ferrari 275 GTB. After several trials, Pininfarina finally came up with a rather novel solution, which was to be the only original feature of the 365 GTB/4 ‘Daytona’ (temporary: the American homologation authorities refused to accept these headlights, forcing Pininfarina to resort to a more conventional solution with retractable headlights). The Italian coachbuilder will house the headlamps under a Perspex window that will form a complete band across the front. Another notable change, still on the front, is the fact that the grille is no longer oval but integrated and discreet. While the 275 GTB still retained its sixties-style curves, the Daytona was already a little more angular and rounded.
