Japan : Magazine Car Graphic 4 - april 1981 : Ferrari 400i vs BB512


A very nice submission by one the readers - Merci Guillaume! I knew about it as I had seen the magazine for sale Ebay, not only very expensive but the shipping costs are even more expensive. So you can imagine I'm very pleased with this unique addition for the online archive (despite I can't read Japanese).

As for the Japanese, they happen to have a large amount of Italian car admirers and owners. So I'm actually quite curious to know how many 365/400/412 ended up overthere.

Ferrari 412 convertible / cabriolet

On FChat I spotted this archive having these unique Ferrari 412 convertible photo's:
Apparently they are from the US Magazine Road & Track:

Not many 412 convertibles are around. Only 1 was offically was produced by Ferrari and I'm aware of 2 made by Jankel. I'm unsure by whom this one was done, I suspect it's a Straman conversion.
