1988 Ferrari 412 : The Atypical Tipo F101 (by Petrolicious)

The Ferrari 412 might not carry the same cachet as the marque’s truly definitive road cars, but the three-box design of Maranello’s stately GT was made with the same ingredients as its more iconic kin, and the result is aging better than anyone would have guessed had you asked them even five years ago. Styling by Pininfarina, thrust by V12, it was a marked departure from Ferrari and their trusted design partner’s curvaceous work in the 1960s, but the 412 stayed true to the Ferrari ideals of fast-paced grand touring spiked with a dose of Italian verve. Only 576 examples of the car were ever built—the last of a lineage that began in 1972 with the 365 GT4 2+2—and finally, more than thirty years later, the boxy but sleek design is being regarded for what it is instead of what it’s not.
