Succeeding the front engined Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona the Berlinetta Boxer series saw production between 1973 and 1984. This marked the first in a series of road going Ferraris equipped with a mid-mounted flat twelve engine. The Ferrari 512 BBI was the third and final iteration of the Berlinetta Boxer series introduced in 1981 and marked the arrival of fuel injection instead of traditional Weber carburetors.
This Ferrari 512 BBI was delivered new via Modena for Ferrari of Horsham, Sussex in August 1982 to a Mr. J.P. Asher and optioned in Blue Chiaro over Tan, the same specification it wears today. The car benefits from a superbly documented maintenance history from new, with numerous invoices present from both Ferrari main dealers and specialists. In recent years the 512 BBI has been subjected to a complete restoration by marque specialists DK Engineering with no expense spared and has enjoyed several thousand miles since completion. Further documentation includes MOT certificates, original document wallet, service handbook and owner’s manual.
