- Well spec’d through Maranello Concessionaires
Replacing the preceding 456, this physically larger model was a genuine four-seat grand tourer and thus extremely capable. The front engined, V12 powerplant was shared with the 575 Superamerica pushing this significant motorcar passed the magic 200mph point. Guitar legend, Eric Clapton, owned a similar model as did many other Ferrari collectors who recognised its understated styling and powerful performance.
This much-loved example, presented in Argento Nürburgring 101/C with a contrasting Bordeaux 4481 red leather and Bordeaux 481 carpet interior, was originally delivered from the Ferrari's Carrozzeria Scaglietti plant to Maranello Concessionaires in Egham. The first owner specified red brake calipers with carbon ceramic brakes, 19” modular wheel rims and Pirelli tyres externally, as well as heated front seats, a plumbed-in ‘infotainment’ system to keep up to date with the outside world and a Navtrak anti-theft system. Additionally, ‘Scuderia Ferrari’ shields were applied along with rear parking sensors. We are pleased to report that this Ferrari has been used for the exact purpose for which it has been designed, that is to say, trans-continental touring as husband and wife having used it on many such occasions, the F1-style gearbox certainly helping with the distances. With light stone-chip wear associated with use, this benefits from a recent service and an MoT test certificate valid until September 2023.
Interested parties should note that the current registration does not come with the car and that a new one will be issued.
