The “baby” V8 in this Ferrari ushered in a new era of engine technology and drew huge critical acclaim on its release. It rewrote the rules for desirability and raised the bar for rival supercars, taking the prancing horse into new territory.
The Ferrari Daytona was a V12 style icon, with beautiful, angular looks and a top speed of 174mph. It was a motor much loved by celebrities of the 70's, and they could often be seen roaring around the streets of Monaco in one of these beauties.
The F40 was the fastest, most powerful and most expensive Ferrari road car ever when it arrived in 1987, but it was that distinctive spoiler and other racy details which made it the poster child of a generation.
GTO stands for Gran Turismo Omologata, which means this homologation special V12 supercar is a race car for the road, and many still race today in historic motorsport - despite the 250GTO being the most expensive Ferrari going, with one recently being offered for $41 million.
