Unveiled at the 1971 Turin Motorshow as the first mid-engine road car to bear the Cavallino Rampante badge and the replacement for the wildly successful Ferrari Daytona, the 365 GT4 Berlinetta Boxer set the tone for 12 Cylinder Ferrari’s for years to come.
After the release of the Lamborghini Miura and then later the Countach it took Ferrari engineers many years to convince Enzo to adopt the mid-engine layout on his road cars due to his disbelief his customers would be able to handle the drive of a mid-engine Ferrari, however finally with the stamp of approval the challenge was not to go unanswered. Whilst the Lamborghini Countach boasts plenty of showmanship the Berlinetta Boxer outweighed it in athleticism.
Accompanying the new chassis would be an all new version of Ferrari’s 4.4 litre Flat-12 Cylinder engine longitudinally mounted which gulps fuel and air through four enormous downdraft Weber 40 IF3C carburetors to produce a whopping 360HP to the rear wheels.
The resulting rarity of the 365 BB has made it increasingly desirable among enthusiasts around the world, especially as the meaty sounding carburettor engine was later phased out and replaced by fuel-injection technology. The first Berlinetta Boxer was, and remains, the lightest, purest and rarest of the Boxer family.
Being one of just 88 right-hand drive cars ever produced we are proud to offer this excellent numbers matching and very rare Australian delivered 1976 Ferrari 365 GT4 Berlinetta Boxer and is still in its original colour combination of Azzuro Metallizo over Crema trim, showing 24,201 kilometres and is accompanied with its original books, factory Ferrari toolkit and maintenance history.
This 365 BB presents superb throughout, the exterior paintwork and the interior trim has been beautifully finished using all original components making this stunning example one for the collector.
Once a bedroom wallposter car, the Berlinetta Boxer will forever be listed under Ferrari’s greatest hits.
