A little background into the TV Miami Vice Car
Cars used on the show were not genuine Daytonas, due to the price (ca. 1980s they were selling for around $100,000-$200,000, currently they bring a 1 millon to 1.5 millon) and rarity of the genuine Ferraris. The cars used in the show were built around the chassis of a Chevrolet Corvette C3 by Tom McBurnie; the first car, known as Car One, was based on a 1976 Corvette, while the second, known as Car Four, was based on a 1981 model. Both cars had 350hp engines and 3 speed automatic transmissions, the latter of which can be glimpsed in the episode "Junk Love". The replica cars (affectionately known as "McBurnies" after their creator) used fiberglass body panels with a black plexiglass nose section, containing clear panels over the two sets of headlights. Originally the seams of this plexiglass nose
They were constructed by specialty-car builder Tom McBurnie, of Thunder Ranch, in El Cajon, California, and were available in both kit and turnkey forms. In the '80s complete cars sold, on average, for just under $50,000, while individual body panels started at $6,500 each. That's still plenty pricey, but provided Ferrari looks were all you were after, the Thunder Ranch 'tona was a relative bargain.

In His Own Words
Miami Vice "Daytona" builder, Tom McBurnie
I worked for a company in Newport Beach called Trend Imports. I used to paint and customize Ferraris there. I suggested that we do a replica Ferrari. At first I wanted to use a Camaro chassis, but we needed the independent suspension of the Corvette. I started in 1980, and it took one year to get everything fitted and ready to build. The first four California Daytona Spyders went to the owner of Trend Imports. The first and the fourth are the ones used on the show.

[Miami Vice transportation coordinator] Ben Haggerty used to hang out at Trend Imports, and he was the one who recommended to [director and show creator] Michael Mann that he use the Ferrari Daytona Spyder. They leased one for the pilot and then purchased it and another for the second season. One was a '76, and the other an '81.

Currently, I am working on many projects, including the 356 Speedster, 550 Spyder, and 718 RSK.
