1979 Ferrari 512BB - Classic Car For Sale


Registration no: HLK77T Chassis no: 25571 Price: Refer Department Ferrari is sensitive to criticism and to intimations of lack of prestige. The Maserati and Lamborghini factories in and near Modena had already put into production sophisticated mid-engined cars while Ferrari was still selling the Daytona as its premier sports car. Unquestionably the Maserati Bora and the Lamborghini Miura were stealing sales from Ferrari and so, to achieve superiority in this state of the art sector, Ferrari developed a new car from scratch. The engine was a 4.4 litre flat 12 cylinder unit derived from FerrariĆ¢€˜s then Formula One engine, whilst coachwork was a sleek and aggressive berlinetta design by Pininfarina. Driving the new car, the Boxer, was a special treat. Compared with the Daytona it was light, responsive and a little more forgiving. However, like the Daytona, it had an abundance of power and demanded the utmost in concentration from its driver were its outer limits to be explored. The usual Ferrari development and improvement programme took place and culminated in a new, more powerful Boxer in 1976. Called the 512BB, this revised model used an enlarged version of the original Boxer engine bored out to 4.9 litres, thus enabling Ferrari to increase horsepower slightly while at the same time achieving a substantially higher torque rating. In 1981 the glorious banks of Weber carburettors gave way to super efficient Bosch fuel injection in order to meet American emissions requirements. Delivered new in 1979, this 512BB has covered only 19,000 miles from new and is described by the vendor as in excellent order throughout. In 2005 HLK77T was restored by renowned Ferrari specialists, Racing Technologies (now known as Autofficina) with full photographic record and proofs of work. The engine and suspension were fully rebuilt and interior re-trimmed. Offered in the classic colour combination of Rosso Corsa with Nero leather interior and Alcantara dash, this vehicle comes with original alloy wheels, V5 registration document, air conditioning and current MoT. Without question, the finest we have seen for many years.
