With only fifteen Factory 365 GTB/C “Competizione” Daytona’s ever built, there has always been a strong demand for similar cars both at the professional level when racing “in period” and today, as club racers. Piet Roelofs’ shop in Holland builds the very best of the 365 GTB/4 Competizione conversions with updates and features unimaginable when these cars were new.

365 GTB/4C features the same competition style modified plexiglass covered headlights, fender flairs and competition wheels as featured on the original Factory built cars. It also has the front fender air dams, front spoiler, racing grille, lightened hood, outside fuel filler, rear brake scoops, engine cold air box, lightened doors and hood and trunk safety latches as used on the Series III Factory cars.

Piet’s shop updates his cars by adding a modern, stronger updated roll cage, fire system, 90 liters fuel cell, FIA approved racing seats, and a much improved oil cooler and a twin master brake cylinder system, with adjustable brake bias from front to rear.

Brakes were the weak link on the original Competizione Daytona’s, and so much improved AP front brakes are fitted. Modern springs and shocks are fitted and the suspension pickup points are modified for a much improved roll center and suspension geometry far superior to the original Factory built cars.

The Daytona engine is virtually bulletproof, even in racing specifications, and each engine is updated with modern lightweight pistons, Carrillo–rods and much improved cam profiles. Competition headers are fitted. The engine in 365 GTB/4C s/n 15723 produces 434 hp at 7750 RPM on the Superflow Dyno!

This Ferrari offers staggering performance, very low maintenance, phallic good looks and mechanical sounds to die for. It is the ultimate club car, Ferrari Challenge racer or Vintage racer and is available at below the replacement cost.
