Enzo Ferrari - Michele Alboreto - Ferrari 412 - Lancia Thema 8.32

Yesterday I visited Munsterhuis and when browsing around in their showroom I saw some Ferrari books in the lounge room. One of them was about all the models produced. So I flicked through it
and read the pages about the 365/400/412. The 412 had an interesting remark which I was not aware off:

One of the Lucky owners of the car was Michele Alboreto who was given a 412 by Enzo Ferrari to mark the birth of his first daughter, with the comment, "now that your family has grown, you'll need a 2+2".

I guess Michele must have been really fortunate as he also got a 8.32 from Enzo :

Ebay Photograph Ferrari 365GT4 2+2 Paris Motorshow 1972

I'm stunned and outbid again on another photograph offered on Ebay. Apparently 4 different people have been attempting to win this item. And they have been bidding serious money. Especially compared to other more attractive or rarer Ferrari models. Why? What is happening?

Autoweek Classics : Guilty Pleasure - Ferrari 412

Today I bought the Dutch magazine Autoweek Classics for an article about a car drawing artist. By surprise I noticed it had a one-page article from one of the editors about the 412. And as the title reveals it was his guilty pleasure. He recently had an opportunity to drive one (400i) but it had dissapointed him but this was mainly due to a poor adjusted engine. If he happens to read this blog update I offer him a second chance and opportunity to do a small test drive in my 400. In return he needs to write a proper story about it.
