Description

The 512BB is widely regarded as the first proper mid-engined road car offered by Ferrari. While the Dino had already been in production for a few years, the Berlinetta Boxer was the first mid-engine 12-cylinder with supercar contention.

The 512 paid homage to and improved upon the 365 GT4 BB. Unique styling cues of the 512BB include 4 rear tail lights, NACA air ducts to assist with rear brake cooling, a lower nose & chin spoiler, and twin exhaust pipes.

This particular example once belonged to the infamous Kroyman Ferrari collection and is finished in stunning Blue Sera. The classic Ferrari beige interior features daytona black accents, blue carpeting, and the coveted 5-speed gated shifter. The 5.0L flat-12 and sends roughly 360 horsepower to the rear wheels. This car came racing onto the market with a top speed of nearly 200MPH, and topped competitors such as the Lamborghini Miura and Maserati Bora.

The BB, or carbureted examples were never offered to the U.S. market. Enzo was under the impression that with U.S. environmental and safety regulations, the V8 examples would suffice for American roads. Around 930 carbureted (BB) examples were produced over a 5-year run. In 1981, Ferrari moved to a Bosch K-jetronic fuel injection system thus giving it the BBi classification.
