FERRARI 512 BBI
The BBi was the final variant of the 512 Berlinetta Boxer which was originally launched at the Frankfurt Salon in 1981. Although the styling had basically remained unchanged externally, new features were the re-designed front and rear bumpers, engine louvre arrangement, wing mirrors and the addition of NACA side ducts. Alloy wheels became the same width front and rear fitted with Mitchelin TRX tyres.
The main differences related to the cars engine upgrade to a Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection system which offered far more reliability, better balance of drivability and performance.
Chassis no. 041825 that we present here, was originally supplied through Garage Francorchamps S.A. of Belgium in May 1982. Much of its early life is unknown, however in recent years the car has been meticulously maintained and prepared by marque specialists Bob Houghton Ltd, with over £70,000 being spent with them between 2014 - 2018, since which time the car has covered less than 200 miles. In 2018 it was also awarded its Ferrari 'Red Book' Classiche certification that confirms the car still retains its original chassis, body, engine and gearbox.
Until recently the car has resided with a very prominent, well respected UK based collector and presents extremely well throughout. It comes complete with an original 512 BBi pouch, handbook, original factory sales brochure, tool roll and history file.
Fantastic value for money!
