EXTERIOR
With is angular lines, pop up headlights and of course, those iconic 5 spoke star alloys, the Ferrari 400i wholly embraces the 70s/80s era in which it was conceived. Finished in a stunning historic shade of Blu Pozzi, which was created to honour French Ferrari importer Charles Pozzi, this V12 grand tourer posses a wonderfully distinguished demeanour.

The deep blue non metallic solid paint sits free from any swirls or scuffs after some careful attention from our inhouse detailing team. On closer inspection there are a few minor age related chips and imperfections, but nothing to detract from the Ferrari’s classic charm.

INTERIOR
2+2 layouts are often a bit of a disappointment, but here in the 400i things are rather different. Rear seats present just enough space for 2 adults and are surprisingly comfortable; separated by the gearbox tunnel their shape and luxurious leather upholstery provide excellent cushioning and support. The lavish leather extends throughout the cabin, with the classic combination of Crema with Blu Scuro details spanning to the front seats, dashboard and even the beautifully stitched headlining.

The classic thin rimmed leather steering wheel is a real highlight of the interior, a subtle touch that epitomises Ferrari’s dedication to driver satisfaction and quality.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Fitted with a 4.8L V12 the Ferrari 400i utilises a Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection to increase reliability and reduce emissions over its carburetted 400 predecessor. Producing 310 bhp it manages 0-60 in 7.7 seconds and goes onto a top speed of 149, which was blistering by the standards of the day. Paired to a 3-Speed automatic the torque and gearing combination perfectly suits the GT style of driving the 400i was designed for; allowing the occupants to cover large distances in the fastest and most comfortable manor possible.

Mechanically this 400i is in very good condition, with invoices showing over £13k spent on the car since 2017 which includes servicing, a full new exhaust system and much more.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Completing the period aesthetic of the 400i, a set of 15? 5 Spoke Star alloys sit in impeccable condition. All four corners are shod in a set of matching and correct Michelin TRX’s, which were fitted less than 100 miles ago at a cost of £1,500.

Brakes function well after a recent overhaul which included full refurbishment of all four callipers and new pads fitted at both front and rear axles.

HISTORY FILE
This Ferrari 400i was first registered by Maranello Egham on 21/02/1980, as 1 of 180 cars ever destined for the UK RHD market. The car was initially a dealership demonstrator before being sold to its first private owner in April the same year, with just 835 miles on the clock.

Unfortunately many Italian cars of this era were susceptible to corrosion and this 400i was no exception. Invoices show the car was taken back to Maranello for an extensive overhaul in 1988 after falling into a state of disrepair. 5 pages of parts outline the extent of the work, which included many new panels, all new trim, a complete respray and much more, all of which concluded in a bill of nearly £28,000. Another invoice from around the same period also shows a complete overhaul of the suspension, gearbox, brakes, windows and a full engine out service, which also totalled over £18,000.

The car was sold in 1991 and has had 4 keepers throughout its life, including the current owner who purchased the car is 2017. Since purchasing the car he has invested over £13k ensuring the car is up to standard, with invoices for bodywork/paint, a full new exhaust system, braking system rebuild, a new set of correct TRX tyres and a minor service all present in the vast history file. The comprehensive history file shows almost £81k worth of invoices and dates back to 1988, outlining much of the cars life, with some service stamps from the early 2000s also helping to fill some gaps.

Present with the car is the original leather wallet with some original books, incredible history file, complete tool kit + tool roll, V5 and 2 sets of keys.
