Ferrari 512 BBi

The Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer (BB) is an automobile which was produced by Ferrari in Italy between 1973 and 1984. Replacing the front engine Daytona, it was the first in a series of Ferraris to use a mid-mounted flat-12 engine. The Boxer was designed by Leonardo Fioravanti and was the first mid-engine road-car to bear the Ferrari name and the Cavallino Rampante (prancing horse) logo. It was replaced by the Testarossa, which continued to use the Flat-12 engine.
Production of the BB was a major step for Enzo Ferrari. He felt that a mid-engine road car would be too difficult for his buyers to handle, and it took many years for his engineers to convince him to adopt the layout.
The Bosch K-Jetronic CIS fuel injected BB 512i introduced in 1981 was the last of the series. The fuel injected motor produced cleaner emissions and offered a better balance of performance and driveability. External differentiators from the BB 512 besides badging include a change to metric sized wheels and the Michelin TRX metric tyre system, small white running lights in the nose (grill), and red rear fog lamps outboard of the exhaust pipes in the rear valance. Just 1,007 examples were built from 1981 to 1984, before production transitioned to the Testarossa.
The car we have on offer today was supplied by Modena via Stratton to Hew Dundas of London in September 1983, and is 1 of 42 UK right hand drive cars produced. The car is a fantastic example and has competed in some concours events achieving top honours in its class. A Ferrari Classiche Certification has been awarded to this car proving its originality and also comes with a fully documented history file, original book pack, original sales brochure and a workshop manual.
