The Ferrari BB (which stands for Berlinetta Boxer) was in production between 1973 and 1984. It was the first Ferrari with a mid-mounted flat-12 engine, replacing the front engined Daytona. Designed by Leonardo Fioravanti during his Pininfarina period, the car was quite a big change for Ferrari. A mid-engined road car was considered too difficult to handle for normal road use, and for that reason it took many years for the engineers to convince Enzo Ferrari to use this layout for a road car. Due to the increasing success of the mid-engined competition cars, the BB was finally ready in the early seventies. After 11 years of production, the BB/BBi was succeeded by the Testarossa.
The car we have on offer is a beautiful original car, in immaculate and unrestored condition. This BB has only 16.630 miles on the clocks, and comes with full Ferrari service history, The engine, gearbox and differential are recently completely overhauled (documented), while the paint and interior are still in magnificent original condition. This BB was delivered new in USA, and came to Europe in 1992. The car is matching nrs and colours, and comes with all books and tools.
This unique car is a true collectors piece which ticks all the right boxes : low mileage, documented history, immaculate condition and dropdead gorgeous. A great opportunity to obtain a very nice 512 BB, which can only increase in value due to its fantastic original condition.
