The Ferrari 456 and 456M (Type F116) are front-engine grand tourers which were produced by Ferrari from 1992 to 2003. The 456 was a replacement for the front-engine 412 as the company's V12-powered four seater. The updated 456M, which was the last Ferrari model to use pop-up headlamps, was replaced in 2004 by the 612 Scaglietti.
The 456M (M standing for Modificata) was unveiled in 1998, starting with chassis number 109589. Many changes were made to improve aerodynamics and cooling and the interior – still featuring Connolly Leather – was refreshed with new seats and other conveniences (fewer gauges on the dash, and a new Becker stereo fitted in front of the shifter). The 456 had a smaller grille with fog lights outside the grille. The undercarriage spoiler on the 456M is fixed. The bonnet was the first commercial application of carbon fibre, the previous being made of a composite material.
The total production of the 456 amounted to 3.289 units. These consisted of the following versions:
456 GT: 1.548
456 GTA: 403
456M GT: 688
456M GTA: 650
This M GTA example is one of only 650 examples built, finished in a rare and stunning colour combination with a special order two tone interior. Exceptionally preserved Japanese example in luxury condition.
