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 remains 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. Less than 1,000 512 BBs were produced in total. The wonderful RHD car we are pleased to offer was delivered new in May 1977, via UK Concessionaires Maranello in Egham. It was specified from new in Azzuro Metallizzato over Crema hide; the stunning colourway that it wears today. The car features blue stripes in the Crema upholstery, as well as a blue leather dashboard, and blue carpets. The first owner of this car, a Mr. Sydney Frank also placed some special requests for his specification, including painting the car without a black bottom or black aerofoil, but with black covers to the carburettor air cleaners and adding a black painted waist line. The car was subject to a full restoration and engine rebuild in 2016 by Modena based Ferrari Specialist Carrozzeria Autosport. During its restoration it the car was returned to its original colours of Azzuro Metallizzato over Crema from the Rosso/Nero combination it sat in prior to restoration. The car maintains a selection of photographs detailing it's restoration from start to finish as well as the full sales invoice for the work carried out by Autosport. The car was also awarded Red Book Classiche Certification in June 2019, confirming its original colours and matching numbers engine. The car maintains its original tool kits as well as several pages of documents detailing Mr Frank's exchanges with Maranello when specifying the car. The car presents exceptionally well after its restoration and also offers a real investment opportunity being 1 of just 101 U.K. supplied, RHD cars.
