The Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer 512 succeeded to the Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Berlinetta Boxer (the first BB, which was only produced for a short period of time). The new model featured the same mid-mounted flat-12 engine with an increased capacity of 5 liters, compared to the 4.4-liter displacement of the earlier model. A dry sump system was added to lower the car’s center of gravity and help it scavenge oil. The 1976 Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer 512 wore the same Pininfarina-designed body than its predecessor, with slightly larger proportions to improve the car’s handling. Few modifications were made to the bodywork, the main changes being the addition of a front spoiler and low-drag air inlet design ahead of the rear wheels. Most of the components were retained, including the five-speed transaxle.
Although the Ferrari BB wasn’t very successful on the track, the model was quite popular among car enthusiasts. The cost of adapting the Berlinetta Boxer 512 to comply with the safety and emission regulations of the U.S. market was high and Enzo Ferrari decided not to go through with this project. No EXAMPLEs were officially imported to the U.S. by Ferrari but third parties organized a grey market and it isn’t too difficult to find a 1976 Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer 512 nowadays.
