Footnotes

  • Having reasserted itself at the top of the supercar hierarchy with the first 'Boxer' - the 365GTB/4 BB - Ferrari went one better with its successor: the 512BB. Displacement was increased by enlarging both bore and stroke, while in addition the compression ratio was raised and dry-sump lubrication adopted. The result of all these changes was a useful increase in torque which, coupled with revised gear ratios, made the 512 more tractable.

    Changes to Pininfarina's inspired coachwork were, not surprisingly, few. The running gear likewise came in for only minor revision while the already excellent all-round ventilated disc brakes remained unchanged. Inside, the 512 remained virtually the same as before but for the welcome adoption of multi-way adjustable seats in place of the fixed originals. Road & Track magazine had achieved a speed of 175mph (280km/h) in the preceding 365GT/4 BB, and although lack of road space prevented the discovery of their test 512's capability, Ferrari's claimed maximum of 188mph (302km/h) was felt entirely realistic.

    In 1981 the model was updated with Bosch fuel injection, becoming the 512BBi. Once again, maximum power remained unchanged but there was more available at lower revs and torque increased still further. Possessing an engine directly related to Ferrari's contemporary Formula 1 unit, as well as being both lighter and faster than the legendary Daytona, the 512BB was one of the most capable and exciting supercars of its era and is still capable of providing all the thrills that an enthusiastic owner-driver could wish for.

    Finished in classic Rosso Corsa with tan interior, this left-hand drive 512BBi was purchased and imported by the current (third) owner from Gullwing Motor Cars Inc of New York, USA. UK duty was paid at time of entry (February 2018) and the Ferrari was registered here on 20th June 2018; it has had only one owner since arrival. Accompanying paperwork shows that the second owner kept this car in Dana Point, California from 1986 to 2018.

    Since 2018, the Ferrari has been kept covered in a professional long-term storage facility. The vendor advises us that the car starts well and has been run on short distances periodically, covering some 200 miles in the last three years. The car has been detailed and the battery maintained as required. The original coolant header tank was replaced in July 2021. Currently displaying a total of 16,000 miles on the odometer, and described by the vendor as in generally good condition, this Berlinetta Boxer is offered with a V5C document and MoT to June 2022.
