Boxer is the term given to any horizontally opposed or flat cylinders engines, hence the name Berlinetta “Boxer”. The early Ferrari BB512’s used a mid-mounted 5 litre carbureted flat-12 Cylinder engine, hence the 512 moniker. Somewhere around 930 BB’s were built between 1976-1981. The 512 badge was resurrected to bare homage to the legendary TR 512 race cars of the 50’s. With the engine immediately behind the cabin there is an unusually intimate connection between the driver and machine. The rear track was widened compared to the early 365 Boxers to improve handling and stability. These were considered supercars in their day and targeted directly at the Lamborghini Countach.

Outside of one meticulous repaint and reupholstered leather seats, this Berlinetta 512 is all original and presented here in classic Ferrari red with tan leather. The second generation Boxer has a more refined interior. The seats were lower and better padded, the dash display more visible and there was more emphasis on luxury accents. This Ferrari was part of a well-known Ferrari collection and has been professionally maintained. It comes with all the proper paperwork, manuals, tools and spare tire. It is serviced and ready to be enjoyed. The later BB 512’s were fuel injected, however carbureted Ferraris clearly bring a premium. Here is an opportunity to enhance your Ferrari collection with a rare and desirable supercar and last of the carbureted Ferraris.
