1973 Ferrari Daytona Up For Auction

Motorsport

For fans of Top Gear, this particular Ferrari should be familiar. It is the actual right-hand drive car that Richard Hammond drove in his race against co-host James May in a speed boat from Portofino to Saint-Tropez. And now, Brooklands is putting it up for auction. It is just one of 158 right-hand drive 365 GTB/4's produced (chassis number 16531) and it took its name from the Italian automaker's success in the 1967 Daytona 24-Hour race.

It was the fastest production road car of its time with 352 hp and was first loaned to Prince Charles for a week before being sold for just £9,250 later that year. The car has since had a few other owners before it appeared on the popular BBC show. It's painted Blue Ribot metallic with a tan leather interior and Borrani wire wheels. It only has 26,281 miles on the odometer and just 1,400 were built. It's expected to bring in somewhere around £180,000 - £210,000, or $280,000 - $327,000 USD.
