4 'Daytona'

Ferrari 365 GTB/4 a.k.a. Daytona

If you are a Christian you may believe that God created the world in seven days, quite an impressive feat. The Daytona was also created in seven days, a very impressive feat. You were expected to pay for this impressiveness, though, because the Daytona was the most expensive Ferrari ever at its launch in 1968.


Some fans weren't impressed because it was rather primitive with its engine in the front compared to the Lamborghini Miura. But speed junkies wouldn't complain about that because an engine in the front meant the Daytona could achieve 174 m.p.h., faster than the Miura.
