The 456M, in its GT and automatic gearbox GTA guises, is the evolution of Ferrari's highly successful interpretation of its traditional 2+2 models.
First introduced in 1992, the 456 GT was the marque's first car designed with the 21st century in mind and has been much appreciated by Maranello's clients for the way it provides saloon-class comfort and roominess combined with class-leading performance and all-round ability.
A true four-seater coupé, the 456 GT was also the first modern Ferrari to revert to a front engine, rear-wheel drive layout, with the gearbox in unit with the rear differential for ideal weight distribution as well as plenty of space for passengers and luggage.

The Ferrari 456 and 456 M was a front-engined grand tourer designed by Pininfarina.
The 456 was produced from 1992 until 2003. It was an overdue replacement for the defunct front-engined 412 as the company's premium 4-seat V12 car.
The updated 456M was replaced in 2004 by the 612 Scaglietti. It was the last Ferrari model to use pop-up headlamps.
