Delivered new through Lancaster Garages, Colchester in March 1978, these 512 presents in its original ordered colour combination of Argento Silver over an Ash Black leather interior. This example has travelled only 14,320 miles from new, and the paintwork and interior are in superb condition. A total of 929 512BB examples were produced from 1976-1981.

Completely original and optioned with factory air conditioning, power windows and a full leather interior, this is one of the finest examples in the country and has been meticulously kept and maintained by its previous owners.

The rear-mid mounted 4.9L Flat-12 is in excellent running order and the 5-speed manual feels smooth and precise.

Accompanying this vehicle is the original tool kit and space saver, as well as the original service books and owner's manual in the original Ferrari wallet. In immaculate, original condition and ready to be driven from the showroom floor, this example would complement any garage or collection.

The 512 Berlinetta Boxer rightfully resurrected the name of the earlier 512 racer, providing the pinnacle of Ferrari performance at the time. Combining classic Pininfarina styling with the outstanding performance of the mid-mounted flat 12, the 512 provides the speed, sound and feel that Ferrari are so well known for. The shape is so familiar, so iconic, and so quintessentially Ferrari”, making these increasingly rare cars extremely desirable.
