1973 Ferrari Daytona Replica
This Ferrari replica was 1 of 2 cars built for and screen used for the TV series Miami Vice. During the series, you might remember this Daytona getting blown up and replaced with a White Ferrari Testarossa. But do you know why? The show producers were contacted by Ferrari who was upset for the use their use of a fake Ferrari while portraying it as real. Therefore it was replaced with a real Ferrari.
The 2 Daytona’s were traded off for a replica Testarossa which was modified for stunt use. The Daytona’s were slightly modified then sent to Canada and used in the John Candy movie “Speed Zone”. When the Daytona’s returned, the nice one known as the “Camera Car” was sold off. This car, known as the stunt car, was in such rough shape that it was left for dead, stored outside in the desert.
During its acting life, this stunt car was highly abused and repaired over and over again and put right back in use on the set. It had been damaged so badly that even the chassis had to be replaced.
Volo Auto Museum purchased this car in “As-Is” condition and did a cosmetic restoration preserving as much originality as possible.
The car has fully been authenticated by owner history and other documents. However the real authentication comes from the car itself. Because it was damaged so much, all the repairs are evident. The most notable, the passenger side is 1 ¼” shorter than the driver’s side because of a rear end collision. Also in the first season, the producer placed the nose mounted Ferrari emblem in the wrong location and moved it to its proper location in season 2, the repair is evident.
