Engine no. F110A*00162*

- In same ownership since 2002
- Much recent mechanical work
- Nobel and pleasant engine

This fine European-spec model was delivered in April 1982. According to Marcel Massini's report, it was exported to the US and then sold new to its first owner in Toronto. Its current owner purchased it in 2002 at an auction run by Maître Poulain for Artcurial. As the catalogue indicated, the car had been restored; the paint had been stripped back and the car resprayed in red, while the upholstery and carpets were redone by the renowned trimmer Antoine, all going to explain its fine condition today. Keen to ensure that it was in good health mechanically, in 2015 he entrusted the car to Sampaio Automobiles in Le Mans for a full service, including an engine overhaul, clutch replacement and check of the gearbox seals. It was then also fitted with a stainless steel exhaust, bringing out still further the wonderful sound of the engine. The work carried out in recent years amounts to more than 40,000 € and all the service bills since 2002 are available on file, along with a valuation report from 2015, which confirms the car's excellent state of preservation. During our road test, we noted that all the dashboard instruments, interior lights and air conditioning operate correctly. With a recorded mileage - most likely original - of just over 45,000 km, this attractively presented model is offered at a particularly compelling estimated price. It will be delivered with its tool case, space-saver spare wheel and the socket for the centre-locking wheels. This is a real opportunity to get behind the wheel of a superb Pininfarina-designed Berlinetta, one of only 1007 cars built.
