1971 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona
1 of only 158 UK supplied RHD cars ever made.
The ultimate expression of Ferrari’s fabulous line of V12 front-engined sports cars, the 365 GTB/4 debuted at the Paris Salon in 1968, soon gaining the unofficial name ‘Daytona’ in honour of the sweeping 1, 2, 3 finish by the Ferrari 330P4 at that circuit in 1967.
At the time of its introduction in 1968 the Daytona was the most expensive production Ferrari ever and, with a top speed in excess of 170mph, it was also the world’s fastest production car. Deliveries commenced in the second half of 1969 and the Daytona would be manufactured for just four years; not until the arrival of the 456 GT in 1992 would Ferrari build anything like it again.
“’It’s a hard muscled thoroughbred, the Daytona – easily the most awesome and yet disciplined road-going Ferrari in that firm’s brilliant quarter century of existence. The Daytona isn’t fast – it’s blinding. It will eat up a quarter-mile of asphalt in 13.2 seconds at 110mph and scream out to 175mph – or it will slug through traffic at 1,500rpm with the Sunday manners of a FIAT. It is the perfect extension of its driver.” – Car and Driver
The Exhaust Coating
Black Ceramic Thermal Coating
This coating is referred to as ‘black’ but as you can see from the photos it comes out as more of a dark smoky grey colour which really compliments the colour of the car.
The HVOF process allows us to produce thick film ceramic coatings onto a range of different materials. Ceramic Coatings provide thermal insulation. Their combination of heat resistance, oxidation resistance and low porosity have seen HVOF applied ceramic coatings become widely accepted in the aerospace sector and are common choice for car exhausts.
This particular exhaust coating is Magnesia Zirconia Oxide which has low thermal conductivity and high melting temperatures, making this an excellent thermal barrier coating. We can supply this type of coating in white or black.
We offer a range of HVOF thermal coating options for a range of applications. Get in touch to discuss your requirements on 01484866386 or firstname.lastname@example.org
