Auction - Bonhams - Ferrari 365GT4 2+2 - Daytona

Somehow this old auction from 2014 popped up on my radar today:

Only adding it here for the records and mostly for the fact the first owner part-exchanged it for his Daytona. Now I'm curious to know who the 1st owner was.

Coachwork by Pininfarina Registration no. KKJ 453N Chassis no. 18101 Engine no. 18101

Update 1-11-2022:

18101 was bought new by Sharps Advertising Limited, London, probably for its Chairman, Mark Ramage, who subsequently bought two 400s.

Mr Ramage had previously owned a Daytona and a number of other V12 Ferraris.

Both his 400s also still exist and are in very good condition. His second 400i is the well known one in New Zealand

Somehow I missed out on this article as it was published earlier this week. Sorry, it's a Dutch article but a very good one. The trigger for this column is the upcoming auction of Niki Lauda's 365GT4 2+2 as per blog:

And apparently the writer is a huge liker of this model. Bottom line; it's pure art:

TikTok - Ferrari 400i Swiss / CH

I spotted this one on TikTok. Adding it here for the records. Apparently it's a freshly imported 400i from Swiss to the Netherlands. I'm curious to see where it will show up. The guy is a autotransport chauffer - sorry it's in Dutch but he seems to like this model.

Auction - Ferrari 400i - Didier Pironi

Another auction. Adding it for the records and the first ownership:

This Ferrari 400i was sold in April 1980 via the Paris Ferrari dealer Ch. Pozzi in Paris to the then Formula 1 driver Didier Pironi. Pironi was still driving for Tyrell in 1980. One year before he signed with Ferrari.

For Sale : rear bumper Ferrari 400i phase 2

I'm offering this for sale for someone else. Contact me if interested.

It's a rare original rear bumper for a 400i phase 2 but fits any other model too. It's used but in a good condition. If your 400i has this type of bumper you might consider to buy this one as spare. Changes are slim you will find one if your current one gets damaged somehow (you would not be the first one being hit in the back).

Asking price € 1.200,-  located in the Netherlands.

Art - Ferrari 412 by Michael Gillett

 Another nice piece of art via

This just came to me and I knew I had to get it on paper. A custom Ferrari 412, with fender flares inspired by the Detomaso Longchamp, recessed tail lamps, and black paint. Getting it to look black on red paper was a challenge, I think I've been more successful than this in the past but I'm happy with the results regardless.
