Ferrari 400i

The elegant angular lines and airy greenhouse of the 365 GT4 2+2 marked a new design direction for Ferrari. Unveiled at 1972¡¯s Paris Auto Show, this square-cut new four-seater looked much different than the Ferrari 365 GTC/4. Moreover, it was stretched over a longer wheelbase — 106.3 inches (2700mm) versus 98.4 (2500) — and had a wider track

, allowing it to have proper rear seats.

But otherwise, it was nearly identical to the Ferrari 365 GTC/4 under the skin. Both had independent suspension front and rear with self-leveling units in back, power-assisted disc brakes, power steering, and a robust tubular chassis. The GTC/4¡¯s 4.4-liter 320 horsepower V-12 and five-speed transmission also carried over untouched. But because of America¡¯s new smog and safety regulations, the car was never imported into the United States.
A revised version appeared at Paris in 1976. Called the 400 GT, its V-12 displaced 4.8-liters. But the most important mechanical change was the gearbox: This was the first Ferrari available with a factory-installed automatic transmission. Ferrari adapted General Motors¡¯ state-of-the-art three-speed Turbo-Hydramatic for use with the V-12 and created the Ferrari 400i Automatic. It was a very popular move for owners.
Externally, the Ferrari five-speed-manual 400 GT and the Ferrari 400i Automatic were nearly identical to the Ferrari 365, save taillights reduced in number from six to four and the addition of a small front spoiler. The interior, however, was substantially revised

, with new seats and more leather trim, making it much more luxurious.
The Ferrari 400i would soldier on into the mid 1980s. The main revision came in late 1979 with introduction of fuel injection. The Ferrari 400i (for injection) was offered with both the five-speed and automatic. Fuel injection spread to the rest of the Ferrari lineup within a year.

The Ferrari 412 replaced the Ferrari 400i in 1985. Unveiled at the Geneva Auto Show, it was at the time the only Ferrari imported into the U.S. by the factory. Displacement grew slightly to 4.9-liters, and the body received minor detail changes, with bumpers now painted the same color as the car. The last Ferrari 412s were made in 1989, a demonstration of the lasting elegance of the car¡¯s shape.

. Even within the same segment, such as recumbent bikes, an expensive, feature-rich bike might be best for your workout partner, while you might prefer a solid yet simple machine. At each price point, however, there are highly rated recumbent bikes.
Schwinn, makers of all types of road bicycles since the turn of the 20th century, is one of the more recognizable names in recumbent bikes. The 200 series, including the 220, 230 and 240 models, is comparable to health club units in many ways and have prices the average consumer can afford. Most models cost less than $500 as of February 2011 and feature magnetic resistance, built-in exercise programs, a heart-rate monitor and a large LCD display. “Consumer Reports” named the 230 a “best buy” and the 240 has a 4.5 star rating based on compiled user reviews, according to Consumer Search.
Lamar Fitness is a growing player in home workout equipment with a line of recumbent bikes that are versatile, sturdy and feature-rich. Lamar occupies the luxury segment, which may be too high end for some consumers. The Lamar 7250 starts at about $799 on the low end, while the 7450 retails for up to $2,199, as of February 2011. Both models feature a step-through design, meaning you don’t have to swing your leg over the middle support like you do with some recumbents. They use magnetic resistance with 20 preset levels and 16 workout programs. The 7450 features a telemetric heart-rate monitor that uses both the grip and a chest strap for accurate measurements. Star Trac acquired Lamar in 2008, but the product line remains under the Lamar banner, as of 2011.
Advances in materials, construction methods and electronics have made entry-level recumbents more attractive. The Marcy ME 709 is one such model, starting at under $150, as of February 2011, and providing eight resistance levels, or plenty for beginner and intermediate exercisers. The large LCD display tracks speed, distance and calories burned, but the unit lacks a heart-rate monitor and cup holder, standard items on more expensive models. It is easily portable, featuring transport wheels at the base, and it has an adjustable, padded seat.
The R514 by Nautilus packs the features of a health-club recumbent bike into a package costing under $500, as of February 2011. Its robust feature list includes telemetric heart-rate monitoring with the chest strap included, water-bottle holder, magazine rack and an LCD display with all your relevant information. There are two programmable user profiles and seven preset profiles from which to choose. The seat features lumbar support, and the bike has a fan to keep you cool.
