Introduced in 1992 as Ferrari’s premier front-engine V12 grand touring car, the Ferrari 456 was among the fastest production four-seater automobiles in the world, second only to the Porsche 959 supercar. It features aluminum Pininfarina-designed bodywork over a tubular steel spaceframe which houses a naturally aspirated 5.5-liter V12 engine producing 436 HP. This 1995 example comes finished in Rosso Mugello over tan Connolly leather and is equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission. Originally sold in Illinois before spending time in California and Texas, this Ferrari is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Florida while showing approximately 41k miles on the odometer.
This 456 GT is one of 1,435 examples with bodywork built by Pininfarina before production was moved to Ferrari in 1996. The car features aluminum body panels, a one-piece composite bonnet, pop-up headlights, integrated fog lights, front fender vents, and polished quad exhaust tips. This example is finished in Rosso Mugello and rides on silver 17” five-spoke alloy wheels dressed in Nitto NT555 G2 tires. The seller describes the exterior to be in excellent original condition and notes a full paint correction was recently performed along with an application of ceramic coating. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a CARFAX report showing a rebuilt/salvage title issued in 2005. A Lemon Squad report is also provided that indicates the rubber seals show signs of age, a coating has been applied to the undercarriage, and the left side mirror trim is broken.
The cabin is appointed with tan Connolly leather and matching carpets contrasted by a black leather dashboard, upper door panels, and a four-spoke steering wheel. Details include silver Ferrari logo door sills, Ferrari emblems on the headrests, a gated shifter with a polished gear knob, and analog Veglia Borletti instrumentation. The car is also equipped with power adjustable seats, power windows and mirrors, automatic climate control, and an aftermarket Bluetooth stereo. The seller notes the cabin was professionally detailed in preparation for sale along with service of the A/C system. The Lemon Squad Report indicates the A/C is not blowing as cold as it should be and some wear is present on the seats and trim pieces.
This Ferrari is powered by an all-aluminum 5.5-liter F116 V12 DOHC engine with four valves per cylinder, dry sump lubrication, and Bosch Motronic fuel injection. Up to 436 HP and 406 lb.-ft of torque is sent to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual transaxle and a limited-slip differential. The chassis includes self-adjusting dampers and self-leveling rear suspension as well as four-piston brake calipers with ventilated discs at each corner. The Lemon Squad report indicates the steering alignment was slightly off and some minor oil seepage is present on the engine.
This sale will include a branded/rebuilt title.
