A superb and affordable V12

Since the introduction of the 250 GTE, Ferrari has always offered in its catalogue a luxurious and grand touring model designed more for the road than for circuits. Based on a 2+2 coupé concept with sedan dimensions, it was in 1972 that the 365 GT4 2+2 appeared, with its characteristic shapes. In 1985, after the 365 GT4, the 400 and then the 400i, it was the 412 that took up the timeless design by Pininfarina. The few aesthetic modifications are intended to rejuvenate a model that has already lived well. The shields are better integrated and the trunk is slightly raised. On the mechanical side, the engine displacement is slightly optimized and reaches a peak of 4,942 cm3 with 340 horsepower still on the program. The V12 can be optionally coupled to an automatic or manual transmission. The self-locking axle is standard, as are the hydropneumatic rear suspensions. The interior is modernized with a new Momo steering wheel and a redesigned centre console. The last representative of the so-called "cubist" Ferrari coupé, the 412 was produced in only 576 units, completing a career of more than fifteen years.

The 412 presented here is a model put into circulation on May 6, 1986 in France. Sold new by the Charles Pozzi establishments in Paris where it was regularly maintained, it was then registered 198 FWY 75. The engine was rebuilt in 2008 and the gearbox in 2011. A major overhaul in December 2015 was carried out at Fiorano Racing and the car was auctioned by one of our colleagues in 2016. The current owner bought it and then started a total paint refurbishment in 2019 (invoice of nearly 7000 € available) as well as the change of the stainless steel exhaust line and collectors for a total of nearly 6000 €. Lovely maintained by its owner collector, he does not hesitate to borrow it for long trips. Our test will confirm us in this idea: the car works perfectly and the V12 coupled to its automatic gearbox is a model of softness. Inside everything works, including the recently overhauled air conditioning. The leather of the seats is superbly patinated by its 30 years of age and remains tight. Today the meter has just over 42,000 km, which seems to be its original mileage. The roadworthiness test less than six months old is valid and the Ferrari is ready to go.
