1984 Ferrari 512 BBi

Published By

Before the Testarossa there was the 1984 Ferrari 512 BBi, a truly beautiful Berlinetta Boxer exotic car. What’s not to love about the BBi? Seductive Italian coachwork combines with a 4.9L 12-cylinder engine producing 340 horsepower for your driving pleasure.

It is a horizontally opposed boxer engine design with fuel injection, making it the first 512 Berlinetta Boxer to drop the carburetors in favor of fuel injection technology. This was the most advanced Ferrari BB of its time.

Ferrari only made approximately 1,007 total 512 BBi models from 1981 to 1984. It was nearly impossible to get one in the United States due to regulations but there was a way to acquire one in Europe and have the necessary modifications performed to legally drive a 512 BBi in the United States. This is one of them.

If you are looking to add this 1984 Ferrari 512 BBi to your collection, today is your lucky day. The reputable RM Sotheby’s is making it available for sale via auction. This gorgeous 512 BBi was recently refinished in its original factory black exterior with a beige leather interior.

A 5-speed manual transaxle puts drivers in control of the flat-12 engine, which is behind the cockpit in this rear-wheel drive sports car. That means you get a vintage Ferrari driving experience when sitting behind the wheel of a 512 Berlinetta Boxer.

Luxurious and sporty, the ‘84 Ferrari 512 BBi remains one of the iconic brand’s most recognizable models from the ‘80s. Adding this Prancing Horse to your garage comes with prestige and plenty of urges to take it for a spin. Welcome to the Ferrari way.
