by Charterhouse Auctioneers




A 1983 Ferrari 400i automatic, registration number UOB 646Y, chassis number 44819, engine number F101C010864, gearbox number FG821173, Blue Ridot. Launched in 1976 as the 400GT, it was the first Ferrari to be offered with automatic transmission as an option. The lavishly appointed Maranello flagship featured self-levelling rear suspension, power steering, optional air conditioning and the mighty V12 engine. This particular 400i is one of only 152 right hand drive examples manufactured and has covered only 35000 miles from new. Finished in Blue Ridot coachwork with a Sabbia (cream) leather interior, this Ferrari features an electric sunroof. The Ferrari was supplied to its first owner a Mr R Back by Marranello Concessionaires, Egham, Surrey, for a not inconsiderable £41000 (original bill of sale on file) a sum which would have purchased a substantial house in 1983. Offered with a comprehensive history file containing a letter of all previous owners, receipts, the original bill of sale, a letter from Marranello Concessionaires Archive confirming the build specification and chassis, engine and gearbox numbers, MOTs and its original handbook and service book. This very original 400i was purchased by our vendor last year as a longterm investment but unfortunately due to health reasons he reluctantly has to let a new custodian take over ownership of this handsome grand tourer.
