For Sale / 15 Comments

It isn't restored, but it's not in bad shape, considering.

We know that you sometimes see stories of supercars left abandoned and just get pushed to the brink of rage that someone could do such a thing. Well, that nearly happened here. The owner of this 1971 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona was forced to pick up and move to Asia due to a family emergency, and the car ended up sitting in a Toronto parking garage for 25 years. We're sure it provoked tears from anyone who saw it, but now it's up for auction.

When it first debuted in 1968, the Ferrari 365 GTB/4 was the fastest production car in the world, and would remain so until 1984 when it was dethroned by the 288 GTO. That's longer than any other car in history has ever maintained the title, and that should give you something of an idea of just how special this car is. This particular example, painted in Rosso Rubino, has 56,000 miles on the clock and is unrestored. But it is still in good shape, and considering the significance of the model, is expected to fetch in excess of $600,000.
