The 456 M, in its GT and automatic gearbox 456 GTA versions, brings the evolution of a particularly well received model to clients who in a real Ferrari appreciate roominess combined with flexibility of use.
A further step in the company's tradition of 2+2 cars, the 456 M provides a high-performance 334 cu. in V12 engine but at the same time guarantees the comfort and roominess typical of a GT car. The most rational way to roominess and maximum-performance in terms of safety and easy driving conditions is a layout with a front engine and a rear gearbox. The aerodynamics being a top priority, the front part was designed in a clear-cut way and a spoiler was integrated in the rear bumper.
The particular shape of the front spoiler and bonnet and the development of the rear extractor guarantee an improvement in the 456 M forecarriage lift and penetrative capacity rate. Design by Pininfarina.
