BEING SOLD WITH TITLE
The name 456 is derived from the fact that each cylinder displaces 456 cubic centimeters. This was the last Ferrari to use this naming convention until the 488 GTB. Despite its exceptional performance, the 456 has a relatively unstressed engine, which has proven to be a very reliable unit. A further developed version of this engine was used in the front-engined 550 Maranello grand tourer that was introduced in 1996 and which became the most powerful naturally aspirated Ferrari road car aside from the 456.
The chassis is a tubular steel space-frame construction with a one-piece composite bonnet and body panels of aluminum. The body panels are welded to the chassis by using a special “sandwich filler” called feran that, when laid between, allows steel and aluminum to be welded. Pininfarina was responsible for the bodywork of the 456 until 1996 when production was moved to Ferrari. All early cars have Pininfarina script and badge, whilst all Modificatas only have the disegno Pininfarina scripts.
