Well bought indeed.
I'm not watching the 456 market like a hawk but I did read the comments on that one and the last few I've paid attention to it was shocking how much maintenance a few have had over the last 6-7 years.
Love the TdF.
While our cars have a bit of a reputation for maintenance, its pretty clear that deferring regular maintenance is a prescription for real issues and bills down the road.
So far my experience is that it is a fairly straightforward automobile to work on ... if you can turn a wrench you can own a 456!!!
Fully agree! Although it is all relatively straightforward, it is usually impossible to do any job quickly. There's often many steps to take, all in the right order, but if you take your time it's a great car to work on.
Agree... just replacing the speed sensor I had to remove a section of the exhaust system..but it was built to come apart like it needed to....
Now a real challenge is no wiring schematics for the early 456GT/GTA
My car came with over 75k$ in receipts for work. Nothing major, just regular maint, some break downs and some “nice to replace since we can”. Some of it honestly looked like making busy work for some dealers. That said, I don’t think they are very difficult to work on compared to some cars. Replacement parts being the trick. Some more than others it seems.
I saw that there are 3 black 456 for sale right now in the USA.
Cld you post that invoice? Id love to see it
Oh it was over a course of many years, a stack that took a long time to compile.
Oh no worries then… I was excited to see a single invoice for 75,000 as its 2x my biggest one..,
Sent from my iPhone using FerrariChat

Gated 1999 456M GT in Northern California: https://www.sanfranciscosportscars.com/used-vehicle-1999-ferrari-456m-gt-m-c-972/
34k miles for $80k, Argento Nurburgring/Nero.
I think it was just recently listed, but I may be wrong.
It wouldn't be kosher to reveal the gentleman's name but he may well rejoin this site now that he is the proud owner of my '03 456M GT. That's right. Beloved Bella is going to a new home. I know she will be loved as that has been the basis for the whole deal as I wasn't really looking to sell. But I got talked into it. I will stay active on the forum as I look for another adventure. But I do think someone should take over the maintenance and updating of the 456M register for US cars that I have assembled and managed. Unless of course, I end up in another 456M.
All that having been said, to all the users of this forum, this is without peer, the best community of car enthusiasts, owners, and model aficionados I have ever encountered. You people are fantastic, supportive, knowledgeable, witty, and the best group ever!! Thanks. Seriously, you folks are a major benefit of ownership of these magnificent cars.
I'm in shock
As am I. I wasn't looking to sell but the gentleman knew exactly what he wanted and was able to be more than sufficiently convincing. I'll merely share that the 456M GT market, were it to take this deal into account, would be significantly more robust that it has been recently. Similar to recent trends with the 550. I'll be back. The hunt for a next adventure is already underway!
Hopefully you still pop in time to time, legacy knowledge goes a long way.
It is interesting, I myself was in a position willing to pay significantly more than the market price for the right 456M and ended up doing just that. I may have overpaid (according to the market) but my spec is perfect and if I wrecked it I could not just go out and buy another one like this and assume it is all sorted, etc...I think when the dust settles and the junkers are off the market these will be more valued. 4 seats. V12. Small footprint.
I shall still be here. The hunt is on for another adventure but this was a deal out of the blue (TdF blue that is....) and just felt right for all parties. Haven't fallen out of love with the 456 or even other front V12s (550/575). I really like this era of the V12.
Dude, likewise. Is this you??
She looks great and I hope it goes very well.
I am watching this one attentively!
Same here ! I would have bought this had I not found a similar 2003 last year.
Car is awesome
Not mine. I have a GT, Grigio Titano/Cuio, having it's 30K service w/belt as we speak
Happy servicing then. I apologize. I thought this might be your car.
About an hour ago, 97’ 456 GT sold for $83,000. Noted rock pecks and rocker panel dents. Market headed upward.
