2000 to 2004, the current owner uses Red Line synthetic oil in the car, waxes the car only with Zymol wax, only hand washs it (no brushes!!!), and uses Connolly Hide Food on the leather regularly. He always warms the car up for 5 minutes before driving it, then gives it VERY light throttle until the oil temp is above 80° C. The A/C blows cold; the car doesn’t overheat; it runs beautifully, tracks straight and true, and is an absolute dream to drive.

As per the current owner: This 512 BB has never seen redline as long as he has owned it. Because the owner lives in Oregon, it has seen rain a couple of times. When in the garage, it sits under a flannel Exoto car cover with the battery on a trickle charger.
