1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Competizione S2

In the winter of 1971 Ferrari prepared five more copies of their GTB/4 Daytona Competizione for private race teams. This small series of cars were produced with steel bodies which differentiated them from the first aluminum batch.

Chassis 15667 was delivered to Charles Pozzi who painted it in French blue/white/red livery and subsequently won the Tour de France outright and class win at Le Mans.

Another of the cars, chassis 15373 was sold to Ecurie Francorchamps and painted yellow in Belgium tradition. This car was raced by Derek Bell, Teddy Pilette and Richard Bond alongside the winning Charles Pozzi car at the 1972 24 Hours of Le Mans.
