The Ferrari 365 GTB/4 is better known by its unofficial name Ferrari Daytona. Produced between 1968 and 1973, the Daytona, was given its name by the media, rather than Ferrari, to commemorate Ferrari's 1st, 2nd, and 3rd finish in the 1967 24 Hours of Daytona, with the 330 P4. 0-60 in 5.4 seconds and could reach 174 miles per hour.

It was first introduced to the public at the Paris Auto Salon in 1968 and replaced the 275 GTB/4. The Daytona was a traditional front-engined, rear-drive car. The mid-engined 365 GT4 Berlinetta Boxer replaced the Daytona in 1973

Although it was also a Pininfarina design, as with many previous Ferrari road cars (by Leonardo Fioravanti), the Daytona was radically different. Its sharp-edged styling resembled a Lamborghini more than a traditional Pininfarina Ferrari. Leonardo Fioravanti, designer, interviewed on TV car show had confirmed a popular rumor that it took him 7 days to design a Daytona.

In 2004, the Daytona was voted top sports car of the 1970s by Sports Car International magazine. Motor Trend Classic named the 365 GTB/4 and GTS/4 as number two in their list of the ten "Greatest Ferraris of all time." In 1971, the Daytona gained notoriety when Dan Gurney and Brock Yates drove one in the inaugural Cannonball Baker Sea-To-Shining-Sea Memorial Trophy Dash. The pair won with an average speed of 80.1 mph, completing the distance from New York to L.A. in 35 hours 54 minutes (2,876 miles).
