FERRARI 456 GT – REVIEW 2015 HQ

Here another video from a new great Official Ferrari Meeting in the south Italy this year at its 1th edition. Organized by the “VETERAN CLUB POLICORO”, the greatest Ferrari Club of Basilicata cause Matera will be the “CAPITALE EUROPEA DELLA CULTURA” (EUROPEAN CAPITAL OF CULTURE) 2019.

This Ferrari Club organize a lot of events which attract the partecipation of over 50 teams from each parts of Italy. This year 55 Ferraris and other supercars from Basilicata, Puglia, Campania, Sicily, Lazio and Calabria atteded at the festival, so be sure not to miss any of the videos I’ve uploaded in the appropriate playlist.

The event has been named LE FERRARI A MATERA and tries to combine passion and culture visiting the suggestive locations of MATERA, the second town of Lucania and also known as “LA CITTA’ SOTTERRANEA” (the Subterranean City), for its historical center called “Sassi”, considered World Heritage Site by UNESCO since 1993, along with the Park of the Rupestrian Churches. The Sassi originate from a prehistoric settlement, and are suspected to be some of the first human settlements in Italy. The Sassi are houses dug into the calcareous rock, with many of these “houses” that are really caverns, and the streets in some parts of the Sassi often are located on the rooftops of other houses. The ancient town grew in height on one slope of the ravine created by a river that is now a small stream. The ravine is known locally as LA GRAVINA.

The event was enrich by a Regularity Race on the circuit of the KARTODROMO LA PALOMBA, historical track for many Ferrari Club and other kart enthusiasts.

In this video a stunning blue Ferrari 456 GT with italian driving licence plate takes part at the event giving me the possibility to film it in each detail like rims, engine, interior, the logo of the “Cavallino” and to record its noisy start-up and its lovely sound while driving.

The Ferrari 456 GT is an italian grand tourer sports car produced by the manufacturer of Maranello since 1992 to replace the Ferrari 412 as front-engined V12 4 seater.

Presented for the first time at the Spa Francorschamps Circuit, the Ferrari 456GT mounted a 5.5 litre V12 derived from the Dino V6 which can develop 442 hp and 550 Nm of torque, enough to reach a top speed of over 305 Km/h and only 5.2 seconds from 0-100 Km/h.

The name 456 is derived from the fact that each cylinder displaces 456 cubic centimeters (5474cc / 12) to celebrate its amazing engine with 4 valves per cylinder which makes the 456 the most powerful road car ever developed by Ferrari at the time of its development.

The chassis is a tubular steel spaceframe construction with a one-piece composite bonnet and body panels of aluminium. The body panels are welded to the chassis by using a special “sandwich filler” called feran that, when laid between, allows steel and aluminium to be welded.

The design was entirely by Lorenzo Ramaciotti for Pininfarina, already father of supercars like the Ferrari Enzo, the Maserati Birdcage 75th and of the Ferrari Mythos.

In the 1998 was unveiled a revisited version named Ferrari 456M GT (the M stands for Modificata) with many changes made to improve aerodynamics and cooling, and new interior in Connolly Leather. The 456 has a smaller grille with fog lights outside the grille and also had hood-mounted air scoops which can be seen removed on the 456M. The undercarriage spoiler on the 456M is fixed, where the older 456 had a motorized spoiler that began its deployment above 105 km/h, but the engine remained the same with unchanged power. Only 688 units of the Modificata were made.

At the manual 6-speed trasmission was added a new 4-speed automatic shift mounted on both the version and characterized by the “A” acronym. Only 456 GTA and 650 456M GTA were produced.

At the 2002 Geneva Motor Show was unveiled a limited edition of 20 examples with a two color paint scheme and custom leather interior named Ferrari 456 Bicolore Scaglietti.

Ferrari built two Ferrari 456 GT Sedan with 4-door for Nafsas Al Khaddaja, the main member of the Brunei Royal Family. Furthermore the Sultan paid for a convertible version called Ferrari 456GT Spyder.

Another member of the Brunei Family, the Prince Jefri Bolkiah, ordered seven units of an estate 4-door version named Ferrari 456 GT Venice. Each of this car costs around 1,5 Million dollars.

At last was produced a targa top version for the NBA star Shaquille O’Neal based on a 456GTA.

The production ends in the 2002 with 456 GT 1.548 made (3.289 units considering all the version), when was presented the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti.

Complete walk around with each detail like interior, wheels, engine, logo and lights, driving, LOUD starting-up and really noisy exhaust rev sound.
