The warranty card within the original service book for this beautifully coloured Ferrari 400i states that Lancaster Ferrari of Colchester, Essex, sold the car on February 18th 1984 to its first owner, a Gentleman in Ashfield, Suffolk. Maintenance stamps in the service book are by well-known and established dealers of the marque such as Stratton Motor Company of Wilmslow, Maranello Concessionaires, and Talacrest. A sales invoice on file shows that established marque specialist Talacrest sold the Ferrari to our vendor on February 2nd 1993 when the odometer recorded 42,720 miles. The stated colours of the car are Blu Ribot with a Tobacco interior. Accompanying this car are the Ferrari document holder containing a hand book, the service book, and a dealership guide, there are copies of previous V5 and V5C registration documents, and several expired MOT certificates dating from 1995 onwards. Also, there are many maintenance invoices from Talacrest and respected Ferrari specialist Vincent Mezzullo of Byfleet, Surrey. With just 53,400 miles displayed on the odometer, the vendor describes this lovely 400i as having the expensive when new option of front and rear air conditioning and being in 'good to very good overall condition'.
