    This is a fantastic Daytona Spider with low miles and looking absolutely spectacular.
    Only four Daytona Spiders were originally painted Bianco Polo with black interior. I think the white color suits the car very well.

    Looks very nice.
    A couple of minor things to sort, the rear brake lights lens are incorrect, the reflectors are missing, and the front amber lens should have a prancing horse on the reflector, and it looks like the crackle finish on the air cleaner has gone and the fixing nuts painted black. Hard to see any more details with the small photos.

    I have old original color photos of this car and when new it did not have a prancing horse on the front amber lens reflectors.

    USA spec car. For that market, the dual red (with no reflector) tail-light lenses, an the no-horse in front reflectors would be typical.

    Agree about air-box finish, but other than that, and the "scrapped" Ferrari-and-strips on the cam covers, this car looks really original to me. Nice...

    So the horse on the amber Reflector lenses are not standard then? On my Daytona there is not a horse on the lens.

    I suspect that the horse in the reflector was a regulatory issue.

    Most of the rules about such things have a min-area rule, and my bet is that the round reflector was uncomfortably close to the limit. So if the horse were there, it would technically subtract from the effective area, and the reflector might not satisfy the requirements.

    I once did a check about the reflectors in the brake lights (reflectors only in the Euros), and concluded that with the reflectors, the area of the brake light was a little under the regulation limit...
