Description

This front hood comes from Ferrari 512 BBChassis 35529 was the second 512BB competition delivered to Scuderia Bellancauto in Rome. The car is interesting because it received a particular aerodynamic body designed by engineer Armando Palanca.

Known as 512 BBB (the third B stood for Bellancauto), the car made its debut at the 1981 Monza 1000km. It then played the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the same year and the 6 Hours of Pergusa without too much luck. In 1982 there were still changes and the only participation was that of the 1000km of Mugello.

New bodywork for the last configuration in 1984, when the BBB took part in the Imola race of the endurance world championship and in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
