As the name suggests, the Ferrari’s engine was enlarged to 4.8 litres, with the V12’s power increasing to 335bhp. A top speed of nigh on 150mph was possible, and the Ferrari 400 also had a 120-litre fuel tank, making it a magnificent grand tourer. While a five-speed manual gearbox was available on the 400, most buyers opted for the three-speed torque converter. For fast, long journeys or gentle cruising, this automatic gearbox suited the Ferrari 400 perfectly. This particular Ferrari 400 Automatic was delivered in April 1979.
