And it has very nice photoshoot as well. But that's not the reason for posting it here. On yesterdays blog I had a USA brochure listed by the Ferrari dealer Chinetti. And as I mentioned in that blog, both the BB512 and the 400 were cars that officially were not sold in the US.
This advert reveals this is one of those very few that made it straight into the USA from the Ferrari factory. And it also mentions the first owner as well. Since he was a known man I was able to find out he was 55 when he got the car in 1986.
Ferrari 412, year 1986. Colour dark grey metallic with a dark beige full-leather interior. This magnificent Ferrari 412 was delivered new straight from the Ferrari factory in Maranello (the original warrantee card is signed by Mr. Biavati of Ferrari Administrazione). Then the car was shipped to the USA where it was registered fo road use on 7 May 1986. The first owner was Mr. Morton Viner, agent of the Hollywood stars Dean Martin, Shirley McLaine and others. After him the Ferrari had three more US owners. The last of them was Mr. Mashimo Yukitake (Director Japan Music Agency). In the year 2011 the car was sold to the current owner in the Netherlands. This fine Ferrari 412 is in superb original top condition. The car looks brand new AND the car drives like new! This Ferrari 412 has driven only 33747 miles. The car has been fully inspected by a Dutch Ferrari specialist (Ital Auto). The automobile features an automatic gearbox and new tyres. The Ferrari comes beautifully documented; a top specimen!
This Ferrari is for sale at Smiths-Veglia.
