Classic Ferrari GTB/4 Daytona Spider rolls to $1m at Amelia Island

Porsches led the way at last weekend's $23m-netting Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance classic cars auction in Florida. But where were the Ferraris?

Enzo's finest were represented by this 1971 Ferrari GTB/4 Daytona Spider, sold for $1m.

This car is one of only 124 factory Spiders ever produced, as well as being a former FCA Platinum Award and concours winner.

The car's impressive pedigree includes having been documented by Ferrari historian Marcel Massini.

Under its coachwork, reliably designed by the legendary Scaglietti, the Ferrari GTB/4 Daytona Spider is powered by a 4,390 CC DOHC V-12 engine, producing 352 BHP at 7,500 RPM.

Given this car's established Concours pedigree, expect to see a lot more of it at the world's top classic car events after this sale.

Elsewhere, the star automobile at the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance classic cars auction was a 1929 Cord L-29 Special Coupe by The Hayes Body Corporation.
