THE FERRARI 456

Not since the 412's demise in 1989 had Ferrari offered a '2+2' and when the 456GT debuted at the Paris Salon in October 1992 it was obvious that the long awaited newcomer eclipsed all Maranello's previous four-seat Grand Tourers. Although new from stem to stern, the 456GT incorporated elements familiar to generations of Ferrari cognoscenti - front-mounted four-cam V12, rear transaxle, tubular steel spaceframe chassis and all-independent suspension - while making an appearance for the first time were electronically-controlled adaptive suspension and a six-speed gearbox. Essentially a de-tuned version of that powering the 550 and 575, the new 5.5-litre V12 unleashed no less than 442bhp at a lowly 6,250rpm yet remained smooth and tractable from idling speed to red-line thanks to its state-of-the-art engine management system. F40 excepted, the 456 was the most powerful road car developed by Ferrari up to that time, yet despite delivering supercar performance this relatively unstressed engine has proven to be very reliable.

For the 456 Pininfarina worked its magic once more to create a subtly beautiful curvaceous body that contrasted with the hard edges of its predecessor. Although bereft of extraneous aerodynamic devices, the 456 remained stable up to its maximum speed of around 190mph, a figure that made it the world's fastest production four-seater passenger car.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This automatic transmission example of the 456 M GT has covered only 10,500 miles from new and comes with factory manuals and tool kit each in their own leather bag in addition to a car cover. Finished in silver with black leather interior, the car is in great condition. The car's history file contains numeruous service recipts documenting the care that it was given. The current owner purchased the low mile grand tourer in 2013 and has been sparingly enjoyed it since. Recently, the car received four new Pirelli tires, now with less than 500 miles on each. Given the fantastic condition and rarity, with only 650 456M GTAs produced, this is certainly a prancing horse not to pass up.
