Ferrari 512 BB LHD 1982

Allmän beskrivning : The Ferrari BB was first introduced in 1971 at the Turin Salon as the 365 GT4 BB and was a major move forward from the outgoing Daytona, most notably due to the mid-mounted flat-12 engine. This change in engine location was Ferrari's attempt to move away from a GT car and more into a supercar; a direct rival for the Lamborghini Miura and subsequently Countach. There were only 400 365 GT4 BBs produced from 1973-1976 before Ferrari moved on to the 512 BB, the updated successor. Not only was the 512 an improvement in terms of usability, but also raw performance, mainly due to the larger 4.9-litre engine with dry-sump lubrication. Further improvements included a higher compression ratio, wider track and tyres to accommodate the 360bhp, capable of reaching 60mph in the mid 5 seconds. Stylistically, the 512 BB remained similar to its beautiful predecessor; twin rear lights and tailpipes being the most notable change, but even moving into the 80s, the Boxer was still one of the most stunning cars available.The final development of the Berlinetta Boxer was unveiled at the 1981 Frankfurt Salon, the 512BBi. It had minor differences however to the outgoing 512 BB - chiefly the adoption of Bosch K-Jetronic fuel-injection system instead of the Weber carburettors used previously. For many clients, the addition of fuel injection was a welcomed change; so much so that, today, the BBi is considered to be the most functional of all the Berlinetta Boxer models made by Ferrari.Adopting fuel injection also increased the performance resulting in an extra 20 lbs/ft of torque over its carburettor predecessor, and the power-plant proved to be far more manageable overall. A sprint from 0-60mph took 5.4 seconds and it could reach 174mph.For the most part, aesthetically speaking, the BBi retained all the 512 BB character. By 1984, the final year of production before being replaced by the Testarossa, less than 1,000 512 BBs had been made.The car we are offering for sale here was delivered new to Rome, Italy in November 1982. It was specified from new in Argento Metallizzato over Sabia hide, both of which remain original today. The car has been well cared for by its small handful of owners and maintains a comprehensive service history during its time in Europe and more recently the United Kingdom. The 512 BBi is one of the first fuel-injected cars to come from Maranello and its mid-engined layout makes it one of the most stunning designs to come from Pininfarina.

om Ferrari
Den första Ferrari väg bil var de 125 S introducerades 1947 och drivs av en 1,5 L V12 motor, eller hur?
Tja det är inte riktigt så enkelt, Ferrari faktiskt producerar e Tipo 815, 1940 Tipo 815 ritades av ex-Alfa Romeo ingenjörer Alberto Massimino och Vittorio Bellentani och Enrico Nardi enligt Enzo sällskap men juridiska frågor med det tidigare intresse Alfa Romeo hindrade Ferrari från att lansera Ferrari marque vid den punkten.

Enzo fick fram en rad fina väg bilar på 50-talet och 60-talet, men de var bara för att finansiera sin passion racing, väder GT / Sportbil eller Grand Prix. 50-talet såg födelsen av Ferraris mest minnesvärda bilar, 250 GTB (tour de France) 250 Testa Rossa, 250 GT SWB bara för att nämna några.

Under ytspänningen växte dock. I November 1961 erfaren försäljningschef Girolamo Gardini gjorde ett ultimatum till Enzo: om spänningar fortsatte skulle han lämna företaget. Som ett resultat var Gardini avsattes, liksom Scuderia Ferrari manager Romolo Tavoni, överingenjör Carlo Chiti, experimentell sportbil utveckling chief Giotto Bizzarrini, och ett antal andra, som stod vid dem.
Utan Chiti och Bizzarrini utvecklingen av vad som skulle bli den mest kvintessensen Ferrari och idag världens dyraste bil, 250 GTO, var vid en svängpunkt. 250 GTO projekt räddades av en ung ingenjör Mauro Forghieri och lång tid racing bodyman Sergio Scaglietti som klev in och tog över programmet med kända resultat.

Förutom 250 GTO, Ferrari launced sådana mästerverk som 250 LM, 250P, 275 GTB, 365 GTB / 4 "Daytona" under 60-talet
I slutet av 60-talet Ferraris prototyper framgång fick ett abrupt stopp av en ny konkurrent, GT40. Ford vände sig till Lola för att producera en Ferrari slog långdistans racer efter Enzo hade klippt affären av med Henry Ford II gör det senare absolut koka av vrede. Samarbetet mellan Ford och Lola skapade den mäktiga Ford GT40 som gav Ferrari några tunga hits i Le Mans 24 framöver.
I slutet av 60-talet FIAT köpte 50% av bolaget, med start en utveckling som har lett till en ny massproducerade era av Ferraris.
