In this episode of Seen Through Glass, we dive headfirst into the world of the Ferrari 456 GT, a forgotten gem that's now available at a steal of around 35 grand. This four-seat V12 monster, once priced at a whopping 170,000 pounds, offers a unique blend of power and comfort that's hard to come by. Our host visits DK Engineering to check out a pristine model previously owned by none other than the legendary Eric Clapton, showcasing meticulous restoration work that brings this classic back to its former glory.

Under the hood, the 456 GT packs a punch with its 440 horsepower engine, making it the fastest four-seat car of its time. Despite its weight and potential maintenance issues like faulty window regulators and suspension leaks, this Ferrari promises a refined driving experience that's perfect for long European road trips. With its elegant design and smooth ride, the 456 GT exudes a sense of sophistication that's hard to match, even by modern standards.

While some may criticize its lack of immediate power response compared to contemporary supercars, the 456 GT remains a favorite among collectors and enthusiasts alike. Its manual gearbox adds to the driving experience, offering a level of engagement that's often missing in today's cars. So, if you're in the market for a classic Ferrari that combines performance, comfort, and style, the 456 GT might just be the perfect choice for you.
