Ferrari 400i 2+2
At the 1976 Paris Auto Salon, Ferrari introduced the new 400 2+2, its replacement for the 365 GT4 2+2. Featuring distinctively angular styling by Pininfarina, the 400 continued to provide luxurious and spacious high-speed transportation for up to four passengers, powered by a front-mounted 4,823 cc V12 engine with dual overhead camshafts. Precise handling was provided by a fully independent suspension, while both a five-speed manual gearbox and a proven GM Turbo Hydra-Matic 400 automatic transmission were available, encouraging broad appeal for the new model.
Equipped with a numerically low final-drive ratio, the 400i was a very strong performer capable of comfortable and extended high-speed cruising in the best Ferrari GT tradition, with a top speed of 150 mph. Produced in 400 and 412 variants from 1976 until 1989, just 2,383 examples of this limited-production series were built.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in August 2009 at the Portola Hotel & Spa and Monterey Conference Center, Monterey, California.
315 bhp, 4,823 cc V12 engine with dual overhead camshafts and Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection, five-speed manual transmission, four-wheel independent suspension with unequal-length A-arms, coil springs and ant-roll bars, and four-wheel disc brakes. Wheelbase: 106.3”.
