The Ferrari 365 GT4 2+2, 400 GT, 400i and 412 (Tipo F101) are front-engine V12 2+2 grand tourers made by Italian manufacturer Ferrari between 1972 and 1989. The four models are closely related, using the same body, chassis and engine evolved over time. This rare manual transmission example highlights the improvements made to the series as it came to the end of production. The 4 models ran for 17 years, bringing to an end Ferrari’s longest-ever production series. Just 576 of the final 412 models were produced with our lovely example being 1 of only 270 (GT manual gearbox) cars ever built. This particular example, chassis:ZFFYD25S0000 63595 was originally supplied through the Swiss distributor at the time, S.A.V.A.F. of Geneva. SAVAF stands for Société Anonyme pour la Vente des Automobiles Ferrari. It was one of the first Swiss 412s produced, probably in March or April 1986. It would stay with its singe Swiss owner before being purchased at auction by a prominent German collector in 2003. All European Taxes and Duties have of course been paid enabling any potential new owner to register anywhere in the European Community, so it is, essentially, still a one owner registered car. For almost twenty years it has been beautifully maintained with detailed notes taken of the kilometers driven since it arrived in Germany. A flavour of its keen ownership is listed below in the vehicle engine description.
