Five Favorites from the Greenwich Concours d’Elegance Spectator’s Lot

How's that?

4. 1979-1985 Ferrari 400i
Ferrari’s edgy grand tourer from the early 1980s was often overlooked thanks to stunners like the 512BB, the Testarossa, and the 288 GTO. With its significantly toned down, but still unique bodywork penned by Leonardo Fioravanti of Pininfarina, it’s easy to see why. It originally sold as the 365 GT4 2+2, before being updated twice to become the 400 and the 412 coupes. This specific model’s “400i” designation denotes the use of Bosch K-Jetronic electromechanical fuel injection in place of the original six-Weber carburetor setup for the 4.8-liter V-12, resulting in over 300 horsepower and a top speed of 149 mph. Only, 1,305 400i’s were ever made.
