Pininfarina, who are also responsible for all the recent Ferrari road cars, used many of the styling cues also used for the Ferraris. If there is something as a 'poor man's Ferrari', this should be it.

Not only consumers found the 406 Coupe very attractive but the 'experts' were impressed by the design as well as it received many awards in 1997 and 1998. Most notably 'The most beautiful Coupe of the world 1997' (Milan Triennale), 'Car design award' (Turin) and 'The most beautiful car of the year 1998' (Festival of Chamonix).

At its introduction in 1997 two powerplants were available for the 406 Coupe, a 2 litre straight four engine and a 3 litre V6 engine. From 2001 the 406 Coupe is also available with the 2.2 litre HDi Diesel engine, the much praised direct injection 'common rail' Turbo diesel engine also found in the large Citroen and Peugeot saloons.The V6 engine was also revised to give 10 additional horses.

The 406 Coupe is built by Pininfarina in Italy.
