Early registration information identifies famous Ferrari enthusiast Mr Elton John as the recorded owner and keeper of the car from 1973-1975. It is believed that Sir Elton purchased the Daytona off the back of the success of his famed album 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road'.

Since his ownership, later custodian history is fully known and has been made up of Ferrari Owners' Club member-owners. The last private collector owned the car for 16 years, garaging and maintaining the vehicle regardless of cost.

The bodywork is presented in excellent order, the door and panel fit are exceptional and the Rosso Chiaro paintwork still retains a deep shine throughout. The interior has been trimmed in factory specification Black VM8500 Connolly Vaumol hide and is complete with correct Ferrari supplied punched, holed inserts.

The Daytona's V12 engine fires instantly into life and with an original power output of 352bhp, capable of 175mph, it produces a blistering performance for its age, and the gearbox changes effortlessly through the 5-speed range.
