Lot 228: Ferrari 400i

Techno Classica, Coys (2 April 2011)

Ferrari took some time to come into the four seater market although Aston Martin, de Tomaso, Lamborghini and Maserati had established that there was a niche for such a car. When Ferrari did decide to make a real four-seat car, it seems to have shaken up Pininfarina. Presented with the problem of styling a large car with a sporting pedigree, however, the Italian styling house pulled out all the stops. The result is timeless elegance; there are no other words as suitable to describe it. The model went through many phases, starting life as the 365 GT4 and ending as the 412i; it was as beautiful on the day it ended as on the day it first began. This 400i has covered a total mileage of 9,982 miles from new. Always garaged and pampered throughout its life, this classic V12 Ferrari is without doubt a rare find. It presents itself in excellent condition, with both superb original paint and interior, and everything works as it should on such an un-restored low mileage car. It comes with its original tyres, unused spare wheel, tools and recent bills for servicing. Not registered in Germany but with TÜV to 2013, this four-seat Ferrari represents a bargain in this condition. Buyers should note that VAT is applicable on the hammer price if the car is to be used within the EU, however not applicable if directly exported outside the EU with satisfactory proof of export.
