Auction - Bonhams : Ferrari 412 “ Two Owners - 9000 Miles - Manual - Stunning ”

 Just for the records:

Genuine time-warp cars are rarer than you think – or than some advertisers would have you believe.

This, however, is one such example. With under 9,000 miles on the clock and a full history, we can see it attracting an awful lot of attention, not least because we think the 412 has started its inexorable rise into the stratosphere to join the rest of the collector Ferrari models.

We estimate somewhere between £80,000 and £100,000, fully justified when you set against the condition and provenance of the car it’s buying.

Magazine article - Classic.Retro.Modern. 400i 2+2 = A Forgotten Ferrari Gran Turismo

I received this one today. It's a unknown magazine to me. In any case, it has a splendid article about the 400. So it's now added to the download folder in the archive. Happy wafting everyone!

Youtube : Leonardo Fioravanti: il designer di F40, Testarossa, 288 GTO e Daytona - Intervista di Davide Cironi

A must see episode. A great interview with Sig Fioravanti. Of course there is a snippet about the 400. 
But overall a great lesson about design and the "courage of simplicity".
Perhaps the best Ferrari creations were made by Pininfarina under his regime, bless him.
