The Ferrari 365 GT4 2+2 was introduced in 1976 as the successor to the rather larger 365 GT 2+2. With its much sleeker looks the Ferrari 365, also designed by Pininfarina, remained in production with very few styling changes until 1989. It had proved to be a great success for the company. The 412 was introduced in 1985 and this was technically a much improved and modernised version of the classic design, whilst still retaining a timeless and most elegant shape. With a displacement of nearly 5 litres, the V12 engine now produced a healthy 340 hp and ABS was available for the first time in a Ferrari. The Ferrari 412i is the ultimate version of the 400-series four-seat Grand Touring cars and remains highly respected for its performance, luxury and ease of operation.

This very rare right-hand drive 412 is finished in Grigio metallic with Sabbia hide interior and is one of only 306 examples manufactured. Presented in fine condition, this example has covered a mere 45,700 miles from new and features automatic transmission, ABS, air conditioning and alloy wheels.

Supplied with UK registration papers, this elegant GT coupe offers its next owner the enviable opportunity to drive one of the most underrated and best value Ferraris money can buy. In addition, the four-up seating arrangement means the whole family can enjoy the ride.
