Description

Launched in 1976 as more of an update to the 365 GT4 Berlinetta Boxer rather than an all-new model; the Ferrari 512 BB’s name didn’t follow previous Ferrari convention. Instead, it borrowed the format used for the Dino and GT4 at the time, referring to ‘5 litre, 12 cylinder’, rather than the individual cylinder capacity. The higher-torqued 5.0-litre Ferrari flat-12 made this Boxer more responsive and flexible than the 365 BB. A revised gearbox, with reduced pressure in the shift mechanism itself, made gear changes in the 512 BB slicker than in its predecessor, too. This particular Ferrari 512 BB is 1 of just 101 original UK-supplied right-hand-drive cars, delivered new to its first owner in July 1979. It was handed over at the Maltin Car Concessionaires in Henley-on-Thames by none other than British racing driver, Innes Ireland - winner of the 1961 United States Grand Prix. His signature still adorns the original warranty book, as well as the signature of John Surtees on the inner door panel. This stunning Berlinetta Boxer is now presented in exceptional condition, having spent eight months being prepared by our team of Ferrari specialists. It has received a respray in its factory colour of Blu Dino Metallizzato, while the original cream leather interior has been thoroughly detailed with no need for a re-trim. The mechanicals have been overhauled, and all four corners of the suspension have been stripped, re-plated or repainted, and then reassembled to our exacting standards. For enthusiasts and collectors seeking a beautiful flat-12 Ferrari with superb history, it doesn’t get any better than this 512 BB. The low mileage is well documented; the history file is full of old invoices, registration documents and MOTs; and the car even retains its complete and original book pack, period Pioneer radio, jacking kit and space-saver spare wheel.
