Produced between 1985 and 1989. the Ferrari 412 was the final glorious flowering of the '400' series of luxurious four-seaters that had commenced with the introduction of the 365GT/4 2+2 in 1972. Representing evolution rather than revolution. the 412 debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in 1985. replacing the 400GT. The latter's quad-cam V12 engine was enlarged to 4.9 litres for the 412. which also gained anti-lock brakes. a revised interior and bumpers colour co-ordinated with the bodywork. while an improved front air dam and raised boot deck further reduced the already low co-efficient of drag. By the time production ceased in 1989. Ferrari's finest 2+2 had been in production for a remarkable 17 years. though its exclusivity meant that there were seldom more than 200 sold in any one year.
