The ’70s were a slightly troubling time in automotive history. There were some indisputably great cars to come out of the decade, but there were a lot of other big bloated barges being made, and quite a few other questionable decisions. One of these controversial decisions was made by Ferrari, and it was to make a car with an automatic transmission. This accompanied the decision to build the 400 at all in the first place, something a lot of people still consider to have been a mistake on Ferrari’s part. So this is obviously a somewhat controversial car made all the more controversial.
