1986 Ferrari 412i

1986 Ferrari 412i
Registration Number: D429 NRL
Chassis Number: ZFFYD24C000062799

Launched at the 1985 Geneva Motor Show, the four-seat Ferrari 412i was the ultimate incarnation of the 365 / 400 / 400i series of cars and recognisable from earlier incarnations of the model by its colour-coded bumpers, matt black chin spoiler, raised boot-line and 'flat' five-spoke alloy wheels. Uprated with new electrically-operated front seats, the grand tourer's revamped interior also featured re-profiled headrests and an improved air-conditioning system making longer journeys a touch more comfortable. Utilising the same tubular steel chassis design as its predecessors, but with various improvements, the new car boasted all-round independent suspension which was self-levelling at the rear, power-assisted rack and pinion steering and anti-lock disc brakes.

Powered by an enlarged 4942cc 'quad-cam' V12 engine that developed 340bhp at 6,000rpm, it could be ordered with either five-speed manual or automatic transmission. First registered in August 1986 with the private registration A8 PPS, this right-hand drive automatic 412 is finished in metallic gold with a magnolia interior and chocolate brown dash. In generally good cosmetic condition, the Ferrari starts easily and is in running, driving condition, although the last MoT recently expired 30 May 2019. The recorded mileage is presently 27,681 and correspondence on file indicates the car has only covered approximately 1,200 miles since January 2013. The history file includes V5C registration document, various invoices, correspondence and expired MoTs.

Buyer's Premium for lots 1-10 will be at the reduced rate of 15% plus VAT.

Buying a pre-loved, antique, or vintage item not only provides you with unique style and value for money but it also helps to reduce landfill, and the annual emissions of an antique or vintage piece can be as little as one sixteenth of those of its new equivalent!
