2000 Ferrari 456 M

$49,591 — $61,071 USED

Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
While most Ferrari models are two-seaters, the 456M holds four, with the usual front buckets and a cozy two-place rear seat. Unlike the 360 Modena, which has a mid-engine design, the 456M’s V-12 engine sits in the front. The 456 also carries a much higher base price — $224,800 versus $138,225 for the 360.

Ferrari describes the 456M as a “2+2 berlinetta” — the numbers denote the seating arrangements, and berlinetta is Italian for “little sedan,” what is commonly called a coupe.

Exterior
The 456M is about a foot longer than the two-seat 360 Modena at 187 inches overall, and it sports styling by Pininfarina, an Italian design studio that has penned numerous Ferraris. A cross-hatch grille, large side scallops, a classic long-hood and short rear-deck profile, and softer lines than other current Ferraris are among the major styling cues.

Body panels are aluminum, except for the carbon fiber hood, and the chassis is steel.

Interior
Body-hugging leather seats in the front and rear are designed to hold occupants securely in spirited driving. The front passenger seat automatically slides forward when the backrest is tilted to ease entry and exit to and from the rear seat.

Under the Hood
The 5.5-liter V-12 — the same engine used in the 550 Maranello — produces 436 horsepower in the 456M and a top speed of “more than 186 miles per hour,” according to Ferrari. Transmission choices are a standard six-speed manual for the GT mo...

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
