- Raymond Jeannot's collection
- The high performance of a Daytona

- Elegant colour combination
At the start of the 1970s, Ferrari's spearhead was the Daytona, whose power and performance on the road made it a formidable GT. Alongside it, the 365 GT 2+2 appeared rather clumsy and updated, and in 1971 it was replaced by the 365 GTC/4. Designed by Pininfarina, it was based on the chassis of the Daytona and adopted the Daytona's 4.4-litre V12 with four overhead cams. Thanks to its 340bhp, it offered outstanding performance, far superior to that of the 365 GT 2+2. Its five-speed gearbox was bolted directly to the engine. It is a rare car, with about 500 cars built in all.
What a splendid combination of colours! Navy blue with beige leather: it would be hard to choose a more elegant or better matched finish for this model. Painted red when it left the factory, it was sold new in England with left-hand drive and to European specification. Thanks to its power-assisted steering, it received even more praise for its handling, when compared with the 2-seat Daytona. In 1984, it was acquired by an Italian collector, from whom Raymond Jeannot bought it eight years ago, through DPM in Monaco. Today, it duplicates his new acquisition, Ferrari's latest 4-seater, the GTC4 Lusso. Its interior, an invitation to go on a long journey, is in very good original condition. Well maintained like all the cars in this collection, the GTC/4 comes with a sheaf of bills, its toolkit and owner's manual. Jeannot took part with it in many rallies and never hesitated to drive it to Paris.
Auction estimate: €170 000 / 230 000
