Rare 1984 Ferrari 512 BBi Is One Of Few

This supercar classic is up for grabs!

The Ferrari 512 BBI was commonly referred to as the Ferrari Boxer due to its flat-12 Boxer-style engine. During its 10-year production run, the car was given three different variations, although they all looked similar in appearance. Initially, the car was introduced in 1973 as the 365 GT4/BB, standing for Berlinetta Boxer, and it was a successor to the Ferrari Daytona. The final iteration was the 512 BBI introduced in 1983 with the "I" indicating that the model was now fuel injected. Only 144 were made in the 1984 model year run, and super rare to find, you can bring home this stunning classic supercar to your collection now.

The 512 was a replacement for the front-engine Daytona. The "BB" in the model name is widely believed to stand for "Berlinetta Boxer", and in Italian "Berlinetta" details a sports coupe. The word "Boxer" refers to the horizontally opposed mid-mounted flat-12 engine. According to a Ferrari engineer, BB actually stands for "Berlinetta Bialbero" which means dual camshaft. Behind the doors of Modena, they discreetly refer to it as "Brigitte Bardot" which means "exceptionally beautiful", like the French actress. Brand new, the BBi models sold for about $60,000, but none were built and sold new to the U.S. market. However, the car could be imported into the United States via 3rd parties.

This Ferrari 512 BBi was imported new to California and federalized. It benefitted from a $14,000 mechanical recommissioning. It retains most of the factory-correct finishes, including the Nero paintwork. You can bring this into your vintage supercar collection now.
