Revealed in 1992 at Garage Francorchamps in Belgium, it was the first road car launched under the auspices of renowned former Ferrari president, Luca Cordero di Montezemolo. In his own words it was ‘a totally new kind of Ferrari in every sense of the word’. A completely new 5.5-litre Ferrari V12 engine was mated to a six-speed manual transmission, with a sophisticated suspension set-up and freshly designed switchgear. In 1996, the Ferrari 456 GT four-speed automatic was launched.
This Ferrari 456 GT is one of just 141 six-speed manual cars imported from Italy by Maranello Concessionaires and was first registered in May 1995.
It is presented in the unusual and striking factory specification of silver Argento Nurburgring with blue hide (Connolly leather A4307) and Otranto (light blue) carpets in addition to tailored navy over mats. This Ferrari 456 GT was first registered in Jersey and was brought onto the mainland permanently in 1997. It has evidently been very well cared for throughout its life, with just five registered keepers on the logbook and a genuine low mileage of only 38,790 miles from new.
An excellent example of an early model year car, this 456 GT is equipped with the highly desirable six-speed manual transmission, making it an increasingly sought after car among collectors and enthusiasts alike. An extensive file of invoices and old MOT certificates accompanies the car, and it is complete with the original tan hide tool case, leather owner's wallet and all of the original factory books.
The car is in superb condition and presented with outstanding maintenance history, having 20 stamps in the service book and more recently has undergone extensive servicing by Foskers, including cam-belts, tensioners and a full annual service.
