We are pleased to offer 1981 512 BB/LM factory built silhouette racer s/n 35527. A N.A.R.T. car, this 512 BB/LM features a double Le Mans race history. 512 BB/LM s/n 35527 was race prepared and fitted with multiple upgrades by Motion Products. The engine was rebuilt by Motion Products and features titanium rods; aluminum flywheel; forged 11.5–1 racing pistons; racing grade piston rings; ported cylinder heads; titanium retainers and high lift camshafts with journals. The Lucas fuel injection system and fuel distributor were rebuilt and tested by Kinsler. The engine was dyno tested and tuned for best power and torque with 526 horsepower at 7,750 rpm with the maximum torque of 399 lb/ft at 5,774 rpm.

The original 512 BB/LM engine is also with the car. It was rebuilt at the end of 2001 and has had only two races since the rebuild. 512 BB/LM s/n 35527 comes with multiple gear sets and drop gears, special transfer gears, main shafts, two near new sets of BBS wheels and an older set of BBS wheels. It also has a spare lower nose.

A lighter (and faster) second series 512 BB/LM, this car won the 2001 U.S. Shell Ferrari Historic Challenge in the Disc Brake class and could easily do the same in the 2003 European Ferrari Maserati Historic Challenge.
