2001 Ferrari 456M Coupe GTA 2dr Coupe (5.5L 12cyl 4A)


Review

Driving a V-12 Ferrari feels like an event every time you get behind the wheel. The sound, the tactile impression of the seats and all of the controls is very satisfying and the performance is stunning-lots of torque, effortless acceleration, perfectly balanced steering, cornering grip and powerful brakes, as you would expect. But there are maddening quality issues that far cheaper cars solved decades ago: alarm sirens that die, motor mounts that need to be replaced, windows that don't fit properly and HVAC control surfaces that get sticky with age.


Best Features

Balanced performance--outstanding in every department, beautiful lines, elegantly executed top quality leather interior.


Worst Features

See Review, above. Many of the problems are due to the fact that it is such a low volume production car. The cost of servicing the vehicle is astronomical (e.g. 30,000 mile service costs $8-$12,000) but, after all, when new, it is was $250,000 car.
