The power and speed come from the 4.4L quad-cam V12 engine, designed by Colombo, which has 6 double powered carburetors. This engine is capable of producing 318 lb-ft of torque and a maximum power of 352 bhp, the best long-distance GT-car at the time.
Meanwhile, the car body design done by Pininfarina’s Leonardo Fioravanti does not take long because it only takes 1 week to complete. Even so, the design is very beautiful, almost unmatched and many people make it a template for the generation of GT cars.
We will again remember the heyday of Daytona when in the 1990s Ferrari returned to the supercar and GT front-engined cars. In 1970 the headlights became a pop-up unit whereas previously they had been fixed behind the perspective.
