First registration 03.1988
Only 270 built
Swiss road registration with veteran entry
The Ferrari 412 made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in 1985. The one offered here is a rare version, namely one of only 270 built with manual transmission. From 1985 to 1989, a total of 576 were built, so there were still 306 with automatics.
This Ferrari 412 was delivered after its completion in the color Nero metallizzato and Pelle Bianco (leather white) by the Ferrari dealer at that time, Garage A. Cecchin, in Versoix, in March 1988 to the first owner in Geneva. Subsequently the owner history is known, the car always remained in Switzerland. It was regularly serviced and no expense was spared. This beautiful Ferrari 412 is matching numbers and is, with original, just under 39’000 km and veteran-tested, in top maintained and very original collector condition. The original radio/tape Blaupunkt New York is still installed and the owner’s manual is present. The on-board folder with service booklet, owner’s manual and complete exhaust maintenance document belong to the car as well as the original on-board tools and the car cover. Many invoices and all keys present.
Over twelve years after the launch of the 365 GT4 2+2, Ferrari presented the fourth generation of the range, the 412, in April 1985, still looking very similar to the 365 GT4 2+2 of 1972 but revised in many ways. With the change, the series received a larger 4.9-liter (4943 cc) V12 engine with an output of 250 kW (340 hp). For the first time at Ferrari, an anti-lock braking system was also offered in the 412. It was the first Italian car with ABS as standard.
The bodywork by Pininfarina had been changed only in details, as was the case with the transition from the 365 GT4 2+2 to the 400 GT. Technical innovations included the use of a Bosch K/KE Jetronic, electronic ignition, a new exhaust system and a larger twin-plate clutch. In the interior, there were modified mounting points for the seat belts, electric seat adjustment and revised head restraints.
As before, there was a choice of manual or automatic transmission, but by now an automatic had become standard on luxury coupes and the manual transmission was optional.
The Ferrari 412 rolled off the production line from spring 1985 to early 1989. In this time 576 examples were produced.
