Ferrari Daytona leads Silverstone Classic celebrations
The Ferrari 365 GTB/4's 50-year history will be celebrated at the 2018 Silverstone Classic, with Porsche and Aston Martin also honoured
The 50th anniversary of the Ferrari 365 GTB/4 will be celebrated at this year’s Silverstone Classic, with Porsche 356, Aston Martin, Austin-Healey and Jaguar landmarks also honoured.
Launched at the 1968 Paris Motor Show, the 365 was capable of over 170mph courtesy of a 4.4-litre V12. Behind the Pininfarina styling, the car followed a conventional front-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout rather than adopting the mid-engine configuration as seen in the Lamborghini Miura two years previous.
The car has since become better known as the Ferrari Daytona in deference to the marque’s one-two-three finish in the 1967 24 Hours of Daytona.
In total, Ferrari built just 1406 Daytonas between by the end of its production in 1973. The majority were coupés but 122 were Spyders, and 15 were lightweight competition cars that took GT class wins at Le Mans – a 1972-74 hattrick. The Classic wants all three variants on display.
It will follow on from the 2017 celebration of the Jaguar XJ220, which included a track parade of both road and racing variants in celebrations of the car’s 25th anniversary.
Also featuring will be the Porsche Club of Great Britain as the marques’ iconic 356 – its first model – entered production 70 years ago in 1948.
The Aston Martin Owners Club will be honouring 70 years of the DB1 and 60 years of the DB4, plus the Austin-Healey Sprite is another notable model turning 60 in 2018. Jaguar car clubs will celebrate 70 years of the XK120 and 50 years of the XJ saloon.
Nick Wigley, chief executive officer of Goose Live Events – the company behind the Silverstone Classic – said: ‘Nowhere else will you get to see so many famous and legendary marques and models all lovingly maintained and displayed by their owners.
‘The sheer scale of these amazing displays and incredible track parades is a landmark feature of the Silverstone Classic – a real celebration of motoring, auto design and memorabilia.’
The 2018 Silverstone Classic is confirmed for July 20-22.

This 1984 Ferrari 400i is one design-masterpiece by the famous Pininfarina. It’s sobre, straight-forward design seems to grow more and more popular as the years pass by, which explains the rapidly climbing prices of these beauties. They are among the last of the classic Ferrari V12’s but their rapidly increasing popularity means they won’t be affordable for long. On top of that, our car has
