The Ferrari 456 and 456 M, a four-seat V12 Gran Turismo, was produced from 1992 to 2003 and was the replacement for the 412.
The 456 was another Pinninfarina design and available as GT and GTA (automatic). The 5.5 L (5474 cc) 65 ° V12 engine was derived from the Dino V6.
The engine produced 436 hp (325 kW, 442 hp) with four valves per cylinder and Bosch Motronic 2.7 engine management. This propelled the 1690 kg car, with four passengers, to 302 km / h (188 mph), making it the world's fastest production four-seater. The 456 accelerated to 100 km / h (62 mph) in just 5.2 seconds. At the time it was the most powerful car ever developed by Ferrari (aside from the F40).
The model name 456 is derived from the number of cc displaced by each cylinder. It was a detuned version of the 550 and 575. Despite its supercar performance, the 456 had a relatively low stressed, reliable engine.
The Modificata 456 M was presented in 1998 and had undergone many changes to improve the aerodynamics and cooling. The interior was refreshed too with new seats, fewer gauges on the dashboard and a new Becker stereo. The 456 was the last Ferrari model with pop-up head lights. The power increased slightly on the Modificata to 442 hp (330 kW; 448 PS) through the Bosch Motronic 5.2. In the last year of its production (2002/3) customers could specify their vehicle with the Carrozzeria Scaglietti Program. In 2002 this program was launched with much excitement at the Geneva Auto Show. With Michael Schumacher's own 456M GT as an example, customers together with Ferrari personnel, could create their own car. Such cars were called Tipo 456M GT (A) Scaglieti.
