Peroni Nastro Azzurro - Giacobazzi - MO 391677

Recently I obtained this Peroni advert lightbox. Thought it was a nice item for my garage. As such I shared this photo on Facebook. Someone remarked it looked liked the garage Giacobazzi.

So that triggered me to do a quick search and I hit this article:

Funny enough this article does display my Ferrari 400 as well - same photo as used in the header of this blog. I suspect they used my blog for this article.

In any case this reminded me about the fact Enzo Ferrari did had a Ferrari 400 as well as outlined by this blog:

I totally forgot it's the one displayed in the Giacobazzi museum:

I'm surprised I never further looked into this. The chauffeur of Enzo clearly mentioned it was a 400 Automatic. On the back the 400 Automatic emblem is clearly visible:

But it is equipped with a manual gearbox. I now wonder what is the VIN of this car and what is mentioned on the tag at the steering wheel. Has it been changed to a manual?

Furthermore I noticed it does have the 400i wheels with the TRX tyres.
