1995 Ferrari 456 GT
A really super 456 GT 6 speed manual that has covered 55,000 miles in the hands of four owners with a full service history. It remains in remarkably good original order in all respects. Unusually it comes with the expensive, hence rarely ordered and unused Schedonni complete luggage set that remains unused in its protective bags.
This 456 was first delivered via Ferrari main dealer HR Owen in Old Brompton Road, London on the 1st January 1995 as confirmed in the original stamped service book. The first owner was a well-known Ferrari collector, Fred Smith, based some miles away in Yorkshire. The second owner was also based near York, however the third owner who purchased the Ferrari took it south to Poole whilst the last owner, a Ferrari collector of some standing based in the Cotswolds purchased the car for his collection a few years ago. In this last ownership it has sat along-side some great examples of the marque including a 275 model owned for some 46 years!.
What unites each owner is their very careful use and care of this 456, confirmed not only by the cars condition but also by its service record as follows:

The last service carried out by Neil Korns of Omega Motorsport, a noted Ferrari technician included the all-important belt change. He has tended to this last owners notable collection for many years.
It is rare to find such a nice early 456 manual model that has been so carefully used and maintained. The car drives very nicely as one might expect from its fine order with super detail. It comes with all original books in the correct wallet, history file, tools, all keys and the above mentioned luggage set.
