    Need your help! Wondering what kind of car this is in this Daft Punk video for 'Get Lucky"...front looks American but the interior, rear, and profile shots definitely looks European..its short and starts at 1:18...and returns at 2:25....Maserati? Ferrari? Nile Rogers? :hyper: Awesome!

    I think that it's a Ferrari 400

    NICE WORK! Wow..thank you Sir! I am a big lover of 70's and 80's Euro sports cars, but don't follow them as close as I should....that is one cool Ferrari!

    No, you probably don't. Though some (including myself) find Ferrari's attempt at a touring car rather handsome, in today's market, these are the least desirable Ferrari model--not least because most were automatics.

    Yeah, you can pick them up cheap, but there's no such thing as a cheap exotic car. The repair bills will be the same as a popular model...Unless you can work on it yourself, you'll soon have more money in the car than it's worth.
     
  7. According to what I found, the car is a de-badged 412, which was basically a 400 with larger displacement and a few other changes.

    That car reminds me of a stretched out Lancia Beta.

    That Lancia and this Ferrari were both designed Pininfarina, so they do have a family resemblance.

    And yes, the car in the video seems to be a 412, not a 400. I knew it was a little newer and couldn't remember the model designator for the later version for the life of me.

    Thanks SquierJazz72!

    That looks, and seems to perform, like the K Car of Ferraris.
