"These magnificent 12-cylinder Ferraris have enjoyed gaining cult status for some years now and the angular Pininfarina design was the motivating factor behind this front-engined masterpiece. The design was derived from the almost identical looking 365 GT4 2+2 which, itself, was based on the legendary Daytona. Production began in 1976 when Ferrari revealed it at the Paris Motor Show of 1976. The interior was lavishly appointed with rich leather, fine wood and high-end carpets and, together with a sporting five-speed gearing and V12 engine, made for excellent long-distance touring.This impressive Ferrari 400i is accompanied by a file showing a no expense spared attitude to its upkeep. Servicing invoices from the previous owner total nearly £30,000 with respected specialists Foskers of Kent. The owner passed away in 2002 and the car remained unused and kept in and indoor storage until 2021. This attention to detail has continued with our vendor who has spent a further £20,000 on the upkeep of this stunning car. Works completed include a complete respray, servicing, replacing the brake master cylinder, overhauling the brake calipers and rewiring the ignition module. All four wheels have benefitted from refurbishing and period correct tyres have been fitted at a cost of nearly £2,000. The list continues with the fitting of the correct wheel nuts and centre caps. Offered to auction with a V5c registration document, a current MoT test certificate despite its exempt by age status, an original 400i brochure, owner’s manual and wiring diagram. Not only is this one of the finest examples of this model we have seen but it is offered without reserve and must surely be the perfect user-friendly Ferrari. Consigned by Dominic Lake.
