Bill Hammerstein from the 2011 Greytstone Mansion Concours d'Elegance vetting committee showcases his rare 1971 V12 Ferrari Daytona. It is a name given to it by Enzo Ferrari after the car swept 24 hours of Daytona. Sporting a 5 speed transmission, 6 Weber carburetors and a base horsepower of 352 hp, it is a rocket on the road with a 0-60 in just under 6 seconds and a top speed of 174 mph. Voted the top sports car of the 1970s by Sports Car International magazine, the Daytona is a rare and classic look at the definitive sports car of the time. Considered to be one of the 2 top Ferraris ever built, it is an incredible drive and an even more remarkable piece of automotive history. Sleek styling, an aggressive stance and impeccable detailing highly distinguish the Daytona. It is an absolute pleasure to ride as he takes it on the open road at least once a month with famous car guys such as Carol Shelby and Dan Gurney. One of 5 rare classics in his garage, it is a very likely contender for next year's Concours d'Elegance.
