Remember the Ferrari 355 Sport Scaglietti sold at auction for close to $36 million? Well, this prancing horse is much, much more affordable.
The 1987-built vehicle is estimated to fetch between £40,000 and £45,000 ($58-$65k equivalent), when it will go under the hammer at Silverstone auctions, and for the money, its future owner will get to enjoy its repainted Azzurro Blue body and the V12 engine that was “refreshed with new cam belts, injection system overhaul and oil seals”.
The Ferrari 412i comes with “a smooth automatic transmission”, as the seller states, ABS, Cromodora alloy wheels and air conditioning. On top of that, the classic has traveled for just 19,997km (12,425miles) throughout its lifetime. Did we mention that it has has pop-up headlights too?
The 2+2 GT was sold in Europe, back when it was brand new, and shortly after, was exported to Japan. It was recently discovered in a collection, where it spent the last 10 years of its life, and brought back to the Old Continent, only to go through the previously mentioned refresh.
The vendor says that the car is ready for spring and welcomes all pre-sale inspections, prior to its Birmingham auction, on March 5-6, where it hopes to find a new owner.
