When he gave it the beans, that didn’t sound absolutely awesome at all 🙂

Lovely video and the sound from that engine is magical.

I think I know that country lane too (Staple Lane off Epson Road??). Been there with my 2000 GTV and more recently the Integrale EVO2. Great to stretch the cars there, but look out for the cyclists!

It is indeed Staples Lane. The Shere Hill Climb is held on it in September.

I love a story where the car is passed down the generations.
I’m driving my dads MGA, and hope to pass it to my boys one day.

bravo !
i noticed the car also has a booted gearlever.
never seen that on a daytona before.
long may you and your heirs enjoy this fine motor car !

Booted gear lever is unique to UK cars. I’m not sure if it was fitted by the factory for them or fitted at the dealer prior to initial delivery. The UK importer did make some dealer fit changes to cars at the time (notably adding the Ferrari script on the bootlid of 246 Dinos) so I suspect it is the latter.

Well done, Matthew.

Indeed, best part of the video is between 4:25 and 4:40, THAT SOUND.

This guy is a model exotic car owner. Get out and drive! Awesome film as usual.

Nice video Matthew, you’re a fortunate guy and we’re enriched to be able to share a few moments with you and your car. My kind of guy, drive them while you’ve got them and plan to pass them to someone else to be able to do the same.

Beautiful car and a beautiful story. Keep it in the family forever! When I was just out of college I was working in Saddle Brook NJ. There were two other companies in our office building – Sealed Air and Dow. Someone had a red Daytona which was driven to the office occasionally. I think it was a Dow executive. I remember sitting in the parking lot in my company car – a Ford Maverick of all things – and waiting to hear the Daytona start up, warm up then drive away. Nothing else sounds like a Ferrari 12.

Bravo Matthew – nice to finally hear your voice and thank you for sharing your car with us. I particularly loved hearing the car go through the gears at around 4 minutes. Thank you once again.

Great to see your car in action and hear your voice after reading your comments on the site for so long, Matthew! Lovely car!

This brings back wonderful memories of playing with a similar Daytona last summer. The owner, much like Matthew, uses his car like it is a car, albeit a rather special one.

Great video as always. Beautiful car with soundtrack to match. And that Matthew fellow seems like a really nice guy.

Matthew, Congratulations ! You use the Daytona as it was meant to be used. I drove my Daytona 60′ k’s in the last 6 years and there is no better car on Long 1’000km journeys a day than the Daytona. Just feel the seats…..! Thanks for a great Portrait and congrats again ! P.S. one critic to General observations about the Daytona: The steering on the Daytona is not heavy, only the muscles should be appropriate..;-))

Boy, what a sweet sound! Truly the iconic GT of all time. Great video and Matthew is a very lucky (and considerate) man, but he does talk a little funny!

Nice film Matthew, I recognise many of the locations! Bellissima. Great to see such a valuable car not being locked away.

Great video. Love Matthew’s ethos of passing the car through the generations!

Haven’t watched the video yet. Nearly 30 years ago my wife asked about my favorite car and that’s how I came to receive a bespoke watercolor of a 365 GTB/4 for my thirtieth birthday. This is a little too close to – well, it’s exactly – my dream of a daily driver Daytona. If you hear muffled sniffling in the next few minutes, that’ll be me.

sublime, a wonderful 6min distraction before getting back to work

Many owners of these exotic cars do not realize that they were meant to be used and driven, and then they complain when the cars give them trouble. My experience is that the cars that are driven most are also the ones that give least problems.

Thank you for the kind comments, Jim and Andrew, I’m really pleased with how the video came out, not least because it was freezing cold the day we shot it (why the driving gloves are still on in the interview 🙂 )

Huge thanks to the Petrolicious team especially the film crew – Charlie and Yannick.

Matt,

I’m glad we finally did it, and I love the results. I just wish I were there in person for the shooting. Enjoy the Daytona in good health!

Good to see one of the regular contibutors cars and being able to put a face to the ‘voice’. Nice one Matthew. Lovely car.
Maybe one day I might be brave enough to step forwards!

This is the film I’ve been waiting for years to see. Matthew you deserve to own this car. You are the perfect Daytona owner! May you own it for many more years in good health.
