Daytona Shooting Brake from the 70s
About the 70s Daytona Shooting Brake
The son of a famous U.S. Italian car importer Luigi Chinetti was an advocate of the shooting brake and coachbuilding. The early 70s saw him commissioning custom coachwork based on his Daytona. A brand-new Daytona was delivered from North America to create the a one-off winged wonder. The extraordinary butterfly rear windows were a flourish of genius. When parked he would not have been able to gain access to the back of the car normally – whereas loading it from the side allows easy entry to the boot. Behind the steering wheel only walnut panelling: the instruments are mounted centrally in the Daytona Shooting Brake dashboard.
