A stunning example of this very fast, yet very practical, four-seater coupé presented in Tour de France Blue with dark blue leather upholstery. With just 27,000 miles on the clock, the car is in outstanding condition and has everything needed to become a future concours platinum-award winner.
Our car is a right-hand drive Ferrari 456M GTA 2+2 coupé fitted with a four-speed automatic gearbox and is presented in Tour de France Blue with dark blue Connolly leather upholstery and matching carpets. First registered in May 2003, the car is one of the last of the 650 Ferrari 456M GTAs produced and has covered just 27,000 miles since new.
Produced between 1998 and 2003, the Ferrari 456M (‘Modificata’) was a development of the, by then, six-year-old Ferrari 456, and featured a number of significant changes to improve aerodynamics, cooling and passenger comfort. Powered by Ferrari’s 436 bhp, 5.5-litre V12 engine, the car was available with either a six-speed manual (M GT) or four-speed automatic (M GTA) gearbox.
The front-mounted engine and rear-mounted gearbox achieves near perfect weight distribution and maximises cabin space to the extent that, despite its styling and Ferrari’s ‘2+2’ model identification, Ferrari advertise the car as being a ‘true four-seater’. The car has a tubular-steel chassis and uses ‘Feran’, a special foil that allows lightweight aluminium panels to be spot-welded to steel, to provide a very stiff, but very light structure. With 436 bhp on tap, performance is staggering: the original Ferrari 456’s top speed of 188 mph made it the world’s fastest production four-seater when launched in 1992.
This car is a fabulous example of a design that spearheaded Ferrari’s transition into the 21st century. A full dealer service history, its place in the marque’s range, its condition and its low mileage means it has everything necessary to make it a very desirable investment with all the qualities needed to become a future concours winner.
