1978 Ferrari 400 GT

Based on the front-engine, rear-drive 365 GT4 2+2, the 400GT’s is a four-seat grand-tourer that in period competed against the likes of the Aston Martin AMV8 and Jensen Interceptor. Ferrari introduced the 400 GT in 1976 at the Paris Auto Show. The car was an evolutionary advancement from its predecessor with a bigger 4.8-litre V-12 engine that produced 20 more horsepower, now up to 340. The car retained the 365 GT/4’s Pininfarina-styled angular notchback coupé body, now with four taillights instead of six. Perhaps most noteworthy was that GM’s Turbo-Hydramatic transmission became optional equipment, which outraged purists and the press alike.

The car was spacious, luxurious, and a capable performer in the GT class. Just over 500 examples were built until 1979 (with approximately two-thirds equipped with automatic transmission). In 1979 the 400 became the 400i when the 4.8-litre engine received Bosch fuel injection to satisfy increasingly tight emissions requirements worldwide.

This Example

Not only is this striking 1978 model in Blu Scurro with 4.8-litre motor one of the last front-engined V12s with carburettor, this 5-speed manual example is one of only 147 manual cars produced. Not your typical Ferarri - a must-have for collectors of rare and unusual machines.
