    It's great isn't it. Very masculine car and definitely not for wimps. Among my very favourite of cars.

    I notice James says the doors are aluminium, but it is stated by others that the doors were steel on the S3 Competizione Daytonas????

    There are a few good videos of Daytona Competizione cars but I'd like to see one where the cars are filmed in detail and also what they are like to drive.

    Here's another fabulous Comp Daytona: RHD S2 ex Maranello Concessionaires #15681 at Tour Auto 2006. The Beast is coming down from the hills to terrorise everyone!!! Listen at 18s.

    Extract from Motor Sport Magazine, April, 2010 where Sally Mason-Styrron, co owner with her husband Dudley of Daytona Comp S2 15681, talks about the Daytona. Very interesting that she says the road and race Daytonas are completely different to drive and like chalk and cheese.

    “It’s a big old wild animal,” reckons Sally Mason-Styrron who, together with husband Dudley, campaigns a mouth-watering selection of classic Ferraris. “We’ve had our car for 20 or so years. Maranello Concessionaires ran it at Le Mans in 1972 and then JCB the following year (see I Raced One). We’re fortunate enough to also own a Daytona road car and they are completely different to drive; chalk and cheese. The race car may as well be from a different planet. It’s still a heavy old thing, though, and Frank Sytner tells me that when he raced our car in the Kyalami Nine Hours in 1972, he couldn’t move his arms for days afterwards. Coming from Formula Ford, I imagine it would have come as quite a shock. The funny thing is, when you get it rolling, and on to fast, flowing stages on events such as Tour Auto, it really comes into its own: you can start throwing it around. And on open exhausts, it sounds amazing. It really is very special.”
