1981 Ferrari 400i s/n 34845, finished in a very attractive silver metallic with a very nice burgundy leather interior with black inserts. This 400i has been a California car since new, with all ownership records back to the original owner and only three known owners in total. California plates and title, but probably no longer legal in California because of the ever tougher smog laws. Owned by a retired aerospace engineer with an impressive documentation file. Has the original owner’s pouch and hand book and the jack kit. Fitted with a well-integrated sun roof with a sliding inner cover, from new with factory dual air and lots of trunk room and space in the back seat for the kids. Has excellent and correct Michelin 240/45 ZR 415 tires. Being an automatic, Ferrari 400i s/n 34845 drives via GM’s well-proven and bullet-proof Turbo Hydra-matic three-speed transmission. The 400i retained Enzo Ferrari’s long tradition of cam chains and so does not have the dreaded cam-belts that often need an expensive replacement, so common on the Fiat-era Ferraris. This 400i is powered by a 4823cc V-12 engine with dual overhead cams making 340 horsepower, has only 33,013 miles from new, and is very user friendly thanks to the dual A/C.
