At its launch in 1992, the Ferrari 456 was, simply, the best GT ever. We think that it was also the best looking Ferrari of the 90s.

Designed to be a Grand Tourer and not a hardcore supercar the 456 is (or tries to be) a civilised Ferrari, if there can be one.

There is even some space on the back seats for two adults. It is also front engined, something that may seem strange to Ferrari fans and has an automatic transmission option something that, then, seemed strange to everybody...

But this did not mean that the 456 was not an original Ferrari. It was simply a car that can be driven in comfort at low speeds but when you really pushed it, it could reach 186mph and feel as sharp as any other Ferrari.
