Although it would perhaps take the eye of an enthusiast to differentiate between the 1985 Ferrari 412 and its predecessor, the 400i, the differences between the two were not insignificant. For the 412, the graceful Leonardi Fioravanti design was further refined by Pininfarina to incorporate a higher boot-line that increased luggage space, a deeper front air dam to improve aerodynamics, redesigned sill panels, body-coloured inserts, and a new wheel design, behind which lay a Bosch ABS system as standard—a first for Ferrari.

Meanwhile, at the business end of the car, the displacement of the V-12 engine was increased to 4,942 cc, resulting in a power increase of 8% to 340 bhp. Accelerating from 0–62 mph was brushed off in just 6.7 seconds, swift even by modern standards, and the tachometer would happily nudge 150 mph flat out. The leather-clad cabin was also tweaked to improve the ergonomics of the switchgear and ensure that cross-continental journeys could be dispatched with a minimum of fuss.

According to the accompanying original warranty manual, this 412 was delivered to its first owner in Venice in May 1986. Painted in the elegant colour of light blue and trimmed in cream leather, it presents in fine condition. The aforementioned warranty manual shows a rich service history throughout its life, with the most recent official service in 2013 at 34,012 km, and was acquired by the consignor four years later.

This is a lovely, understated Ferrari for any occasion.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/lf19.
