Two Competition Ferraris Feature at RM Sotheby’s Shift/Monterey Auction

Two competition Ferraris line up an impressive exclusive Shift/Monterey online auction offered by RM Sotheby’s during the 13th-15th August.

The first is a 1971 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Competizione.

This example, chassis 14065, competed in 1972 in the 12 Hours of Sebring and was driven by the American racer, Kirk F. White. This car is equipped with a 450hp engine and is one of only six certified Daytona 365 GTB/ 4 Daytona Competitizone examples.

White enlisted the services of race car engineering firm Holman-Moody along with Traco to ensure the Daytona would gain the necessary upgrades to secure the win at the legendary endurance race. Although being the fastest Daytona on the track and leading by a large margin, sheered driveshaft bolts dashed aspirations of victory.
