Don Johnson had great taste, at least in cars. His black Daytona upstaged even the white Testarossa on any given night.
And there’s good reason for that: the 365 GTB/4’s slick wedge shape boasted virtually no angularity, with a neatly curved front end flanked by big yellow parking lights. The long, grand touring-style hood boasted nothing dramatic, but it gave the Daytona its sleek shape. Under that smooth hood snarled a big 4.4-liter V12 engine fed by 6 Weber twin-choke 40mm carburetors, which, together with great weight balance, made for some impressive driving dynamics for such a potent GT car. Though the Spider version was Don’s car of choice, the hard top is a worthy option with its long, sloping roofline.
