1976-1985 FERRARI 512 BB specifications

1976-1985 FERRARI 512 BB specifications Classic and Performance Car

Took over from the 365 BB as Ferrari’s twelve-cylinder range-topper and stayed there for over a decade. Similar to its predecessor, little was changed apart from the lower nose with integrated spoiler to reduce front-end lift. The five-litre flat-12 was treated to Bosch fuel injection from 1981 which added another 20bhp and gave a little assistance to economy. Probably a better bet than a 365 BB, but the fact that four times as many 512 Berlinetta Boxers were built makes them a little cheaper to put in your garage.
