‘Collection by Vermant’ is pleased to offer this April 1980 Ferrari 400i for sale, on behalf of a Ferrari collector. The car is immaculate original condition, with matching numbers, a powerful 4.8-litre V12 engine (306 hp). The power is delivered to the rear wheels through a 3-speed automatic gearbox.
The car was delivered to its first owner, Mr. M.A Cowan, on 19 September 1980 by UK-based “Maranello Concessionaires Limited”. The car was finished in beautiful Grigio Argento Metallic and came with a black leather interior with red accents. The owner paid £34,057 for this splendid car. The documents show that the Ferrari replaced an Aston Martin V8.
The car was frequently used in the early years – and impeccably maintained, as attested by the original service book, invoices and MOT documents:
6 October 1980 = Service 1,200 miles
1 December 1980 = Service 3,000 miles
2 March 1981 = Service 6,250 miles

At the end of 1990, the car was purchased by a flamboyant Italian, who had travelled to London to ring in the New Year. During his short jaunt, he decided to buy this stunning Italian thoroughbred for himself.
He drove the ‘400’ from London to his home on Lago Maggiore, incurring a stiff fine en route – because of his enthusiasm. This ‘memento’ comes with the car.
The car was used infrequently and retained its original British number plate. Nonetheless, it was superbly maintained in the following 25 years by the owner’s personal mechanic.
In 2015, the current owner, a Belgian Ferrari collector, bought the car.
Since then the ‘400’ has covered a mere 60,772 original miles, with several investments made in the car in the last five years. The car received new brakes and a stainless-steel exhaust system, the injection system was fully revised, a new original steering wheel (NOS) was fitted and the car underwent a major service.
Finally, the electrical systems were checked and the bumpers restored…No effort was saved.
Moreover, this 400i comes with all the correspondence prior to the sale, a copy of the purchase invoice, the Ferrari UK price list, multiple invoices, MOT documents, the sales agreement and the original document folder with the owner’s manual and service book. The original spare wheel and jack in its bag as well as the rare toolkit can be found in the boot.
An exceptional opportunity to acquire a 400i in its original condition, which has been used for just ten years and has always been cherished by its owners. A genuine car, with a patina and history, at an unbeatable price!
