New Photo-Vector Work featuring an Early Ferrari Daytona

New Photo-Vector work. The Ferrari 365 GTB/4 "Daytona" was first introduced with a plexiglass band across the front nose. Coloured black with parallel white lines it covered the front prow of the car along with the circular headlights. A small section was kept clear for the Ferrari badge to show through.
Only the first 530 samples had this feature. US regulations came into effect that prohibited covered headlamps, so the design was retooled to retractable headlight pods without the band.
