The striking and skin peelingly fast Ferrari 512 Berlinetta Boxer was introduced for the October 1976 Paris Auto Show.
Penned by Dino design legend Leonardo Fioravanti, the 512 BB was an evolution of the 365 GT4 BB, the first flat 12's ever produced by Ferrari and featured a new front chin spoiler, NACA intakes on the flanks four signature taillights in replacement of the previous six.
The fastest road car in production at the time, the 512 BB surges from 0-100 in just 5.1 seconds and reaches an eye watering top speed of 302 kmh.
This proper Maranello supercar outperformed fierce competition like the Lamborghini Countach LP400 not just on paper but in almost every road test imaginable too.
One of just 101 right-hand-drive examples ever produced, delivered new to the UK this simply unrivaled 1978 512 BB was optioned from factory in the stunning combination of Grigio Argento over Black leather trim.
Benefiting from a professional bare metal restoration, re-built to exacting specification the way this car presents today is a credit to the previous custodian and an asset to the next.
Outside, the shut-lines are to the factory standard, the correct paintwork has a deep glass-like finish and highlights just how well the car has been maintained and the original Cromodora alloys are wrapped in period correct Michelin XWX tyres.
Inside, everything is original, from the Momo steering wheel to the factory radio, dash dials and analogue chrome gated manual transmission.
Available with the car is the complete and original tool kit accompanied by an all-encompassing leather cloth folio with delivery receipts and an original parts catalogue.
A true supercar of our time, the 512 BB carries an aggressive road presence with a louvered rear grill and signature twin tail lights no other car can match.
A Blue Chip investment piece, this rare and exceedingly well restored car is at the leading edge of collectability internationally. A landmark in the history of Ferrari you can see, touch, feel and seriously sink your teeth into.
