The Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer 512 was first introduced in 1976 to succeed to the Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Berlinetta Boxer. Both cars were similar in many ways. The 512 is recognizable thanks to its slightly larger body proportions, added front spoiler and NACA ducts in front of the rear wheels. Pininfarina designed the Ferrari BB 512 with a cut to make it look graceful. The body was built by Scaglietti and was the last Ferrari to be entirely hand-built. The 1977 Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer 512 boasted a mid-mounted flat-12 engine with a capacity of 5 liters, which gave the name ’512’ to the model. 0 to 60 mph were reached in 5.5 seconds and the car would cruise at 150 mph easily. A fuel-injection version of the model was introduced in 1981 to replace the 1977 model.
Although the flat-12 configuration of the Berlinetta Boxer 512 was used on Formula 1 cars earlier, the BB wasn’t a successful race model. However, the BB 512 was elected best all-around sports and GT car by Road & Track in 1978, thanks to its impressive performance.
