The 408 4RM featured an innovative hydraulic four-wheel-drive system developed by Ferrari. The system, called "4RM" would later go on to be used in the Ferrari FF
Two copies were built. The first one, chassis no. 70183, was painted in red and was fitted with an all-steel welded chassis and was built in June 1987. The second one, chassis no 78610, was painted yellow and had an aluminum frame bonded with adhesives. The second car was completed in September 1988 and is now exhibited at the Galleria Ferrari in Maranello.
The model name was linked to the characteristics of the engine, with the 40 in 408 standing for its 4.0 L displacement, and the 8 representing the number of cylinders. The abbreviation "4RM" stood for “4 Ruote Motrici”, meaning four-wheel drive in Italian.
The 408 4RM is powered by a 90 ° rear and longitudinal mounted 4.0 L V8 that produces 300 hp (224 kW; 304 PS) at 6,250 rpm and 373 N⋅m (275 lb⋅ft) of torque. The engine has a compression ratio of 9.8: 1 and a bore and stroke of 93 mm and 73.6 mm respectively, bringing total displacement to 3 999.66 cm³ (4.0 L). The engine also features double overhead camshafts with four valves per cylinder, as well as Weber-Marelli fuel injection and dry sump lubrication.
Hidden headlamps, also commonly known as pop-up headlamps, hideaway headlights, are a form of automotive lighting and an automotive styling feature that conceals an automobile's headlamps when they are not in use.
Depending on the design, the headlamps may be mounted in a housing that rotates so as to sit flush with the front end as on the Porsche 928, may retract into the hood and/or fenders as on the 1963–2004 Chevrolet Corvette, or may be concealed behind retractable or rotating grille panels as on the Dodge Charger, Mercury Cyclone, or the 1960s Buick Riviera, which pioneered the feature.List of Ferrari road cars
