Ferrari 1,200 versions of the 365 GTB/4 'Daytona' between 1969 and 1973, and six were aluminium-bodied 365 GTB/4 Daytonas, but this is the only one they produced that could legally be used on the road

Five lightweight alloy racers by Scaglietti were created for the track for the 24 Hours of Daytona event, but this is the only one they produced that you can drive on the road with a registration plate, indicators and normal seatbelts affixed.

It was known to have been shipped to Japan in 1971, and then it fell off the grid. It only has 22,611 thousand miles on the odometer, and the original unused spare

Mostly because the most recent of four Japanese owners - a Makoto Takai - purchased the unique 365 GTB/4 in 1979 and locked it away in a garage for the best part of half a century.

It's going to auction in Italy, Sept 9th, Sotheby's "LEGGENDA E PASSIONE" in partnership with Ferrari
