Features

1983 Ferrari 512 BBi s/n 44809 has been fastidiously maintained, is extremely well-documented from new, is fully serviced and ready to go. Full EPA and DOT releases, fitted with nicely integrated federalized bumpers and side markers, with the catalysts and smog equipment removed. Finished in truly superb original Rossa Corsa paint with no black “Boxer bottom”. Has an extremely nice black leather interior with black insert stripes and an “as-new” dash without shrinkage. Only three well-documented owners from new. Comes complete with all tools and their briefcase, the rare warranty book and warranty card, the owner’s manual, the parts book and carrying pouch and has the correct original thin line spare wheel and tire. Only one owner for the last decade. The engine was twin-turbocharged in 1984 and while it has never given any problems, it has just been rebuilt and the turbos removed. Fitted with new CP pistons and rings, new valve guides and new main and connecting rod bearings on its original standard specification crank. Thanks to a mere 16,513 original miles from new the engine was in extremely good condition and needed little besides the new pistons, rings, bearing and guides. New cam belts and tensioners plus new accessory drive belts and all new water hoses were installed. The transaxle and differential were in excellent condition and after inspection needed nothing! The brakes and suspension are all in excellent condition and have been full serviced. The exhaust system is now all original. All new air inlet tubes and air boxes. Copies of all invoices on file. The interior is all original and is in excellent condition, showing only very minimal wear and no shrinkage. The original Pioneer radio and equalizer are still in place and work well. The carpets are in very good condition, with only minor wear where the driver’s left foot rests. The engine compartment is very clean and nicely detailed. Much of the plating on the metal components has been renewed, and items such as the intake runners and air boxes are freshly powder coated and in “as-new” condition. The front compartment is very tidy. The windscreen washer reservoir shows as new, and the spare tire and spare tire well liner are in place. The underside of the deck lid is in good shape and the tool roll and all tools with their pouch and carrying bag are also in place, as are the full jack kit and jack bag plus the emergency roadside reflector. It even has the original emergency trouble light. 512 BBi s/n 44809 is a low-mileage “Pride of Ownership” Ferrari and thanks to the fresh rebuild runs and drives as new. The engine starts immediately and runs smoothly, making a unique and pleasurable flat-12 sound which is actually quite quiet, thanks to the original exhaust. It pulls cleanly, has acres of torque and makes great power. The transmission shifts well, including second gear and the clutch is light and easy to use. The chassis is tight yet compliant, and the brakes are rebuilt and effective. This car is exceptionally nice, needs absolutely no excuses made and will not disappoint.
