This engine represents the pinnacle of Ferrari Daytona race engine development (to this point) and produced an amazing 110 HP/liter. All of the available modifications were done to make this power with a flat torque curve (relatively). The dyno run was made with the air box and racing mufflers in place. While expensive, this Daytona Comp engine made the kind of power that vintage racers dream about. Coupled with a lightened race car (2,700 lbs.) this combination was devestatingly fast. Not for the faint of heart or wallet!
