The Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer 512 was first introduced in 1976 to replace the first Berlinetta Boxer, which was only produced for a very short run. After the success of the Dino series, which featured mid-mounted engines for the first time, Enzo decided to make a 12-cylinder mid engine model. The BB 512 boasts a flat-12, 5-liter engine, propelling the car from 0 to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds. Design-wise, the BB 512 is recognizable by its graceful Pininfarina bicolor body, and a wider rear end for better handling. The 1978 Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer 512 was a refined sports car, with a small chin spoiler added on the front end, and NACA ducts to help with brake cooling.
The first Boxer was introduced at the Turin Auto Show in 1971 but production only started two years later. The performance of the 1978 Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer 512 was quite impressive and most of the models still run comfortably at 150 mph.
