Leading Ferrari 400 Parts Supplier
First introduced at the 1976 Paris Motor Show, the new Ferrari 400 was offered in two models: 400 Automatic, the first Ferrari to have an automatic transmission, using a GM 3 speed automatic transmission and 400 GT using a five-speed transmission. Only 502 units were built, 355 of these automatics and 147 manuals with no US versions made due to America’s smog and safety regulations. The automatic was chosen by 70% of buyers. The chassis of the 400 was virtually structurally identical to its preceding 365 GT4 2+2 model but it differentiated with a smaller body color spoiler on the lower edge of the nose, five bolt fixing for the five spoke alloy wheels and some interior alterations from stitch style and pattern, changes to the switchgear on the center console and door release catch styling.
In 1979 the 400 was updated to the 400i with a Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection system. Although this improved the cars emissions, it took the power down from 340hp to 310hp, like in the smaller Ferrari 308 GTBi. The 0-60 mph sprint was still an impressive sub 7 seconds and had a top speed of 150 mph. Ferrari strove for elegance with this car and you can tell from first glance this was a classy supercar. Featuring pop-up headlamps, overly obvious five-spoke wheels, luxurious interior and a large diameter pre-airbag steering wheel. The only initial difference between the 400 and 400i were the fuel injected engine and the ‘i’ badge on the tail but when Ferrari updated the 400i in 1982 there were more significant differences. New camshaft profiles and exhaust manifolds helped raise engine power slightly to 315hp and lower profile Michelin TRX tires were added. The exterior had a narrower front grille to expose the fog lights with the rear fog lights now housed in the bumper and the natural alloy grille between the headlamps and the satin black tail fascia were now body color. The exterior mirrors were more elegant and came bearing a small Ferrari shield similar to those on the Ferrari 328. As for the interior this was revised with different upholstery patterns, door panels and a center console with an array of new electronic switchgear.
