The Ferrari Daytona is one of the most sought after cars in automotive history and certainly the most sought after Ferrari. There were only 1,406 models built in its six model years, making it a very exclusive car. The spyder model, which is officially dubbed the Ferrari 365 GTS/4 is ultimately the rarest of the group, seeing only 122 models from 1971 through 1973.
We are not certain how many of the 122 spyder models are still in existence today, but that number may be taken down by one after a horrible meeting between a GTS/4 and a German tree. As expected of such a meeting, the tree won, leaving the once-worth-$600,000 GTS/4 with some serious damage.
According to reports, the driver claimed that his brakes failed, causing him to slam into the tree. Fortunately, the driver was not injured and his passenger was only treated for minor injuries. More than likely, the GTS/4 will be rebuilt, but judging from the damage, it will no longer be a $600K car. Hopefully the driver had some pretty stout insurance coverage on this puppy...
