A civilized 2+2 coupe that follows in the footsteps of the old 400i and 412i models, the 456 series was introduced in 1993 and continues to give Ferrari owner an opportunity to thrill (or frighten) two rear-seat passengers, provided thy are not very tall. It's engine is shared with the 550 Maranello, only 49 bhp shy. Like the 550 Maranello, this car is a blast to drive. It will reach 60 mph in just over 5 seconds, which for a car that weights 2-tons is very good. 150 mph comes in less than 30 seconds. Remember that this car is not just a sports car, It's a sports luxury coupe. And actually this is the fastest luxury coupe available anywhere. With an estimated top speed of 185 mph, huge vented-discs brakes that can haul it to a stop from 60 mph in just 120 ft., and handling that befits a car displaying the prancing horse on its grille, the 456 can make time on almost any paved road you care to name. Fill its back seat and trunk with luggage, help your favorite traveling companion into the passenger seat and you're ready to devour the road to your favorite weekend getaway, in style. That is , after all, what GT cars are for.
UPDATES: Minor exterior changes include a different front grille. New model called 456M GT / GTA
