1987 FERRARI 412 I

This stunning car has travelled a mere 19997 Km which equates to just 12425 miles.

Supplied new in Europe and exported to Japan.

Having now been rescued from a garage in Japan where it had sat for over 10 years with the injection system in pieces and no one there with the ability to repair it, this with poor values of 412 cars over the last 10 years meant it sat in the sun waiting for someone to come along and bring it back to its former glory.

Still sat on its original tyres!!

In the Spring of 1985 the final evolution of the Pininfarina designed 2+2 series was introduced, with the presentation of the 412 model at the Geneva Salon. The 412 model designation referred to the swept volume of a single cylinder, thus the V12 engine had been increased in size to 4943cc, by providing a 1mm larger diameter bore of 82mm allied to the same 78mm stroke, producing a claimed 340 bhp at 6000rpm.

As with the preceding 400i series cars it was fitted with fuel injection, and was available either with a five speed manual gearbox or a three speed automatic transmission. However, on this model there was no external badging to denote that a car was automatic, the tail badge stated simply 412, whichever gearbox was fitted. The engine type reference numbers were to F 101 E 070 and 010, with chassis type numbers F 101 EL 170 and 110, for the automatic and manual examples respectively.

The V12 engine was bored out to 4,942 cc (from 4,823) with a corresponding 8% increase in power (to 340 bhp) and a 9.5% increase in torque for a 0-62 mph time of 6.7 seconds, and a standing quarter mile of 14.6 seconds compared to 14.8 for the 400i. The 412 was also the first Ferrari to offer Bosch ABS as standard.

The bumpers of the 412 were body colour coded, and the door mirror design was a larger more rectangular profile than that of the last 400i models, without the small enamel Ferrari shield. Internally the seat design altered, along with the control layout on the centre console. Like the 365 GT4 2+2, and the 400 series, right or left hand drive power assisted steering was available, and again there was no USA market version. Similarly, the bodies were constructed at the Pininfarina factory in Turin, with the fully trimmed shells shipped to Ferrari for fitment of the mechanical components.

A total of 576 examples of the 412 model were produced during the production run, in the chassis number range 56275 to 82153. It would be another three years before a 2+2 model reappeared in the Ferrari range catalogue, with the 456 GT, and nearly seven years before automatic transmission would once again become available on a Ferrari.

Having just undergone a full restoration including full concours re paint, leather re conolised, the V12 Daytona engine has had new belts and oil seals throughout and looks and sounds delightful.

With V12 Daytona values getting higher by the day there isnt a Ferrari out there that represents better value for money with investment growth potential than this car.

This amazing car could well be one of the best low mileage examples to be found in the World today.

Truly immaculate
