The Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer 512i was offered between 1981 and 1984, as the successor to the Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer 512 introduced in 1976, and replaced by the Ferrari Testarossa after the production was discontinued. The car was powered by a 5-liter, 12-cylinder, mid-mounted engine, following the success of the Dino, which was the first Ferrari-built car to use the same engine layout. The 1983 Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer 512i was the most refined Berlinetta Boxer, equipped with a Bosch fuel-injection system that gave the car the i in its name. The emissions were largely reduced and the car’s handling and drivability were improved significantly. The Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer 512i featured a dry sump system, a dual plate clutch, and an all-around independent suspension system. Although the model wasn’t the most powerful of the BBs, the added torque and smooth driving experience made it very enjoyable.
