Description

The original 456 grand tourer was designed by Pietro Camardella at Pininfarina which was available in GT and (from 1996) GTA forms. The difference in name signifies the transmission: the former has a six-speed manual and the latter has a four-speed automatic developed in partnership with FF Developments, in Livonia, MI (which was later purchased by Ricardo Engineering in the UK). This was the fourth automatic transmission ever offered by Ferrari. The 5.5 L (5,473.91 cc)[3] 65° V12 engine was derived from the Dino V6 rather than the more conventional 60° V12s used in the 412 and Daytona. It produces 442 PS (325 kW; 436 hp), with 4 valves per cylinder and Bosch Motronic M2.7 engine management. It could push the 1,690 kg (3,726 lb) car and four passengers[citation needed] to a top speed of 302 km/h (188 mph) making it the world's fastest production four-seater grand tourer.[citation needed] Acceleration from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) takes 5.2 seconds, with a 13.4 second quarter-mile time. At the time of its development, it was the most powerful road car ever developed by Ferrari (aside from the F40). In 1996, the engine management system was changed to Motronic M5.2 management and the engine with the updated system.was given the F116C code.
The name 456 is derived from the fact that each cylinder displaces 456 cubic centimetres. This was the last Ferrari to use this naming convention until the 488 GTB. Despite its exceptional performance, the 456 has a relatively unstressed engine, which has proven to be a very reliable unit. A further developed version of this engine was used in the front engined 550 Maranello grand tourer that was introduced in 1996 and which became the most powerful naturally aspirated Ferrari road car aside the 456.
The chassis is a tubular steel space-frame construction with a one-piece composite bonnet and body panels of aluminium. The body panels are welded to the chassis by using a special "sandwich filler" called feran that, when laid between, allows steel and aluminium to be welded.
