Description

Dutch title
Chassis n°29823
Engine n°00515

- Matching numbers
- Sold new in France by Pozzi
- 3rd hand, consistent maintenance

This gorgeous Ferrari 512 BB was sold by Ch. Pozzi SA to Mr. R. from Port Leucate in the south of France in November 1979 and is presented in its most desirable colour combination: grey, "Daytona" leather seats in burgundy and black. The service logbook has been regularly stamped and shows a meticulous servicing until 1995, at the purchase by the previous owner. The car was then acquired in 2006 by the current owner. A technical inspection report from 2006 to date bears witness of a highly consistent maintenance. This BB512 has a mileage of just over 58,000 km and just came out from a complete overhaul. We can only recommend this marvel, delivered with its full original case including user manual, warranty and stamped service logbook, as well as the radio manual. Rarer than the injection version (929 units compared to 1,007 with injection), the 512BB is the very last Ferrari with carburetors. Having known only a limited amount of owners, this example of French origin with matching numbers, maintained with care and in one of the most attractive colour combinations, offers an undeniable appeal. Prices of these BBs have considerably dropped since 2015. The BBs are currently at their lowest price in today's market : it is undoubtedly the right time now to acquire them!
