365 daytona

This Ferrari Friday is looking exactly one year back to the 2014 Silverstone Classic. The very un-Ferrari blue and yellow scheme comes courtesy of the Scuderia Ferrari Svezia (Team Ferrari Sweden), with Flygvapnet (the Swedish Air Force) the main sponsor, as it raced in period. As much as I love Rosso Corsa, I have to say the Daytona looks amazing in this Gialloblu paintwork.

Ferrari 275 GTB Sold for 9.4 Million Dollars at Auction

The Ferrari that won Le Mans in 1967 is the star attraction at the Arizona auction. It was expected to attract the top bid and it didn't disappoint: the 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB, chassis number 09079, changed hands for 9.4 million dollars in an evening auction in Scottsdale. The car that won the 1967 Le Mans 24 Hours in the colors of Scuderia Filipinetti was the 11th of 12 cars built.

Five other Ferraris went under the hammer at the same auction, for a total value of over two million dollars. Worthy of note, a 1969 365 GTB/4 Daytona Berlinetta, which went for $748,000. The others auctioned were a Dino 246 GT ($385,000) a 1982 512 BBi ($375,000) a 1984 512 BBi ($324,500) and a 1990 Testarossa ($250,800).
