This stunning Ferrari has had numerous owners from across the globe. The car is well travelled and has found itself new homes in Italy, France, Miami, California, Arizona, Japan, Switzerland and most recently the United Kingdom. This rare and collectable Ferrari has competed at a number of Concours events over the years including the 33rd Annual Ferrari Club of America National Concours where the car was awarded Best in Class and the prestigious Platinum Award. The car was also displayed at the VII Cavalino Classic in Palm Beach winning Best in Class.

In 2015 the owner commissioned Barkaways to carry out a full and comprehensive restoration of Chassis 14415. The objective was to restore the car to absolute Concours standard and return the car to its original specification, thus presenting this 1971 Ferrari 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spyder as new condition.
This stunning and rare car was completely stripped back to bare metal. Works included a major engine rebuild, along with all associated mechanical components including brakes and suspension. The car has been repainted in Blu Dino Metallizzato with Pelle Nera leather interior.
