We love the Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona. It's most definitely a classic, made famous in part by its appearance as Don Johnson's favored ride in the classic '80s television series Miami Vice... but we won't hold that against it.

The specific example you see above just crossed the block at the 2013 Barrett-Jackson extravaganza in Scottsdale, and it cleared a cool $495,000 after the buyer's commission was factored in. The 1972 Daytona features a sweet-sounding V12 engine mated to a five-speed manual gearbox.

Plus, it's brown, with a tan interior. Stunning. Check it out in our high-res image gallery above, and be sure to read through its official auction description below.

      The "Daytona" in the Miami Vice series was a replica, built on the Corvette's chassis. It wasn't the real deal. The Testarossa was real, though a "stunt double" was often used for that one.

        Not only that, but the Miami Vice Daytona was a convertible not a coupe. Specifically the car was from McBurnie Coachworks.

      I prefer the 90s and newer Ferraris. These can be actually very affordable (although very costly to maintain). You can find very decent, very low mile, 355 spyders from the late 90s for $50k or so, Or at least you used to until a couple years ago. And given the worthlessness of today's $, and the fact that the average new car purchase price is over $30k, this is a screaming bargain.

      This is my favorite exotic car of all time, but I prefer the convertible.

      I remember when these used to go for a million plus in the 80's.
