1984 Ferrari GTi 400 From the Estate of Greg Garrison + 1981 Personal collection Robert E. Petersen.

And another known one:

It's the car owned by Dean Martin, see blog:

As you can see it was sold for a very good price in 2007. There is another one listed on the same auction which got even sold for 52k USD.

Very high prices for the US Market, I'm not sure if this is caused by the famous owners of these. This one came out of the private collection of Robert E Petersen (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_E._Petersen). Both were having the "desirable" manual gearbox as well.


Ferrari 412 Convertible Scaglietti Prototype

By surprise I came across this unique one-off. I have made another blog about this one but this photo and auction was unknown to me. So here you go:

Emergency Triangle - Triangolo di segnaliazone - Triangle de pre-signalation

This was another item that was still missing. And of course I had to obtain the correct one. In the Original owners manual it's listed as an item but not actually displayed. It's shown though on the eurospares catalogue:

I checked with another owner who had the Original with his car. It appears to be made by a company called "costaplastik" in Macherio. The green color of the casing is a bit faded  but other then that it's pretty ok. Of course the price paid was ridiculous. But it's good for my nightrest as it's another step to completion.

A very nice timelapse recording of a 400i engine rebuild and more by APT Performance cars in Barcelona. I have now added this company to the sidebar as well. Excellent job Kike!

Auto Gespot : Ferrari 400i Orland Park (IL)

This spot made me happy. Nice to see the car being used and by the looks of it he's taking his son to a soccer game. How cool is that. Furthermore it looks like to be in a good condition. To bad about the US sidemarkers. Strange to see it without a front license plate but I like it though. I also noticed it does have the Original Tornado decals on the Vitaloni mirrors (I still have plenty left for sale, see my blog: http://erwin400.blogspot.nl/2016/01/for-sale-tornado-by-vitaloni-decal.html). And the rear lights seems to have been reversed, meaning blinking lights on the inside instead of the outside. By many the 400 is considered an ugly car. Well, on this parking area I see only ugly cars except the 400
Compliments to this owner. See the link for more supporting photo's:

Spotter Lamborarri
  • Orland Park (IL), United States of America
  • First time spotted in Orland Park (IL)
  • It isn't very often I get to spot classics, and it's even rarer that I spot a classic Ferrari. So you can imagine my surprise spotting this insanely rare Ferrari 400i at my cousin's soccer game at some random park. The owner was really chill and said this is the first time his car has ever been photgraphed, and I think he was almost as excited about that as I was to see this car to begin with. He said he drives it around the area sometimes so hopefully I will get to see it again. According to various websites, they only built around 850 of these and roughly 500 are left today.
