The Ferrari 400 and 412 models are lesser-known front-engined 2+2 coupes. Their design is derived from the 365 GT4 2+2 version of the famous Daytona. Production began in 1976, with the improved 412 introduced in 1985 and phased out in 1989.
The 400 Automatic or 400A was introduced at the Paris Motor Show in 1976. It was the first Ferrari to offer an automatic transmission, in this case a 3-speed unit from General Motors. The engine, based on the Daytona's, was a 4.8 L (4823 cc) V12 producing 340 hp. Mounted in front and driving the rear wheels, the traditional GT car layout allowed Ferrari to fit four seats in the stylish coupe.
The 400 was improved for 1985 with an increase in displacement (to 4943 cc) and a restoration of the original car's 340 hp. ABS was offered for the first time on a Ferrari, and the automatic transmission was retained.
