In many ways, this is certainly not your typical Ferrari.
When you think about a Ferrari, the images that your mind probably conjures are those of mid-engined supercars painted in bright, bold red, with driver’s car sensibilities, curvacious design, and unforgettable performance. While the Ferrari 400i is certainly a true Ferrari, it’s quite a far cry from the Ferraris we know today, and even most of the classic Ferrari models that we as car enthusiasts celebrate. Take for example the fact that in true classic Ferrari nature, the 400i boasts a 4.8-liter V12 engine under the hood, but the power goes through a 3-speed automatic transmission. With its plush interior and grand touring character, this 80s Ferrari isn’t just a unique car in itself, but this specific 1982 Ferrari 400i for sale at Ferrari Westlake has quite a unique story of its own.
The 400i was a Ferrari that was never made to be sold in the United States market, meaning that examples of the car that have arrived stateside were imported in order to arrive to our shores. What that means for this car was that its story starts unsurprisingly in Italy, where it was first registered owner was none other than Ferrari S.p.A. Modena itself. Being owned within the company, the car could have been driven by contemporary Ferrari F1 drivers or even Enzo Ferrari himself. However, early in its life, the car was brought to California, where it was eventually restored and remains today. In 2021, this Ferrari 400i won the Gold Award in its class at the San Marino Car Classic. Coming with a unique configuration featuring a burl-wood center console, separate air conditioning for front and rear passengers, and still with manuals, documents, and the original toolset, this Ferrari 400i for sale at Ferrari Westlake on duPont REGISTRY is a stunning example with an incredible story.
