1998 Ferrari 456 GTA

When Ferrari released the 456 GT it changed the perception of a high-performance 2+2. Refined and elegant comfort and performance were the orders of the day, and the Pininfarina-designed body is as intensely beautiful as the car is luxurious and fast.

Powered by a sporty 436-hp V12 engine, with a four-speed automatic (456 GTA), its aerodynamics and handling characteristics are unlike those of any other 2+2.

The 456 was the ultimate four-person conveyance, and some consider it to be the ultimate in practical supercar automotive design. This particular example is in excellent, like-new condition with less than 10,000 miles.
