The Ferrari 456 is a front-engined Grand Tourer in the true tradition. It was an overdue replacement for the, by then, creaking old front-engined 412 which had been the company's premium 4-seat V12 car for years, and the new car's sleek lines and excellent pedigree secured a warm reception from the motoring community, and deservedly so. In our opinion, the Ferrari 456 is a capable, powerful, and frankly, totally undervalued sports car with the a greater appetite for long-distance touring than any other we can name. Being finished in the distinctive combination of Black, with a Black interior, this left-hand drive Ferrari appears ‘fresh' and modern despite being due to celebrate its 20th birthday reasonably soon. From order and manufacture, this Ferrari was destined for the Gulf, indicated by the red intake manifolds but was intercepted by a wealthy businessman from Metz in France who owned and operated theme parks. In 2007 some twelve years into his ownership of this Ferrari, his business fell into difficulty and this car was sold relatively quickly to Germany before it could be seized if his business became bankrupt. The German gentleman who bought it has kept it until today with records of any servicing work during his ownership, but sadly none prior, the latest not 500kms ago included a major service with the obligatory change of cam belts. Apart from the service book the car has a full book pack, and two sets of keys accompany the car which shows a, believed genuine, 50,000kms. Fitted with a manual gearbox, always considered preferable in a 456, this Ferrari has four brand-new tyres, is accident-free and presents in very good all round order, particularly the interior which has stood up well with very little sign of age and use. Everything in the car works as you would expect, and this elegant, four seat Ferrari drives exceptionally well. We believe that the 456 still offers the greatest value for money in Ferraris from the last 30 years, and with the manual gearbox is a fine sports car. Almost impossible to beat at this price level, what's not to like?
