What you are looking at is a state of the art Ferrari engine, circa 1968.

The motor is all aluminum block and heads, with steel cylinder sleeves, V-12, dual distributor (one for each side of the engine), dry sump oil system with dual oil filtering, 4 camshafts, 6 2-throat Weber 40DCN21 carburetors, 270 cubic inch displacement (4.4 liters), 2 valves per cylinder.

Stock the horsepower rating was 352. In race trim, the engines put out between 400 and 550 horsepower depending on when the engines were built up.

1280 coupes and 120 spyders were built from 1969 through 1973, a fairly large production run for Ferrari in that time period. One of the last cars designed and produced totally under Enzo Ferrari's management.

The successor to the Daytona was the 365 Berlinetta Boxer, which featured a mid-engine layout with a flat 12 horizontal opposed engine (think two 911 engines laid out nose to tail).
