This is not a mis-print, it is a 1997 Ferrari 456 GTA, UK supplied Right Hand Drive, with 38k Miles for £39,995.

We have priced her to sell, probably within the trade, in days, not weeks. Our car is finished in Grigio Titanio with Bordeaux Red Leather. It was supplied on 7th March by Maranello Sales, Egham to its first owner, a Mr. Tony Reeves, of West London. The car has a Full Service History with 15 Stamps in the book, the last service, which included Cam Belts was at Carrs Ferrari in July 2018 with minimal mileage since then. She has had 7 ownes from new and comes with all Handbooks and Service Books, drives like a new car and is ready for its new owner.

Have a flick through Ferrari's back catalog and you'll discover a rich vein of talent for creating superb front-engined V12 GTs. Think of the 1964 275 GTB or the 1968 365 GTB/4 Daytona for instance. Revealed at the Paris Motor Show in 1992, Ferrari had a surprise in store for the assembled press pack. The 456 GT marked a line in the sand for the great Italian marque. Gone was the excess and flamboyance of the 1980s, in its place a more studied, elegant approach to design. Acknowledged as one of Pininfarina's finest pieces of work, the aluminum coachwork was chemically bonded to a tubular steel chassis, and a new 48-valve V12 was brought in to power the flagship Ferrari.

Not since the 412's demise in 1989 had Ferrari offered a '2+2' and when the 456GT debuted at the Paris Salon in October 1992 it was obvious that the long awaited newcomer eclipsed all Maranello's previous four-seat Grand Tourers. Although new from stem to stern, the 456GT incorporated elements familiar to generations of Ferrari cognoscenti - front-mounted four-cam V12, rear transaxle, tubular steel spaceframe chassis and all-independent suspension - while making an appearance for the first time were electronically-controlled adaptive suspension and a six-speed gearbox. Essentially a de-tuned version of that powering the 550 and 575, the new 5.5-litre V12 unleashed no less than 442bhp at a lowly 6,250rpm yet remained smooth and tractable from idling speed to red-line thanks to its state-of-the-art engine management system. F40 excepted, the 456 was the most powerful road car developed by Ferrari up to that time, yet despite delivering supercar performance this relatively unstressed engine has proven to be very reliable.

For the 456 Pininfarina worked its magic once more to create a subtly beautiful curvaceous body that contrasted with the hard edges of its predecessor. Although bereft of extraneous aerodynamic devices, the 456 remained stable up to its maximum speed of around 190mph, a figure that made it the world's fastest production four-seater passenger car.

Our car is in the perfect colour scheme, is in a near p[erfect condition, was supplied by The Ferrari Centre to a previous owner, has covered a very low mileage, is fully serviced and is the best value on the market today, without excpetion. Please be quick at this price.
