Ferrari built upon the success of its first mid-engine production car, the 365 GT4 Berlinetta Boxer, with the introduction of the 512 BB in 1976. Reverting to Ferrari’s more typical nomenclature, the new 512 featured a small chin spoiler, exposed driving lights, rectangular rear parking lights, NACA ducts ahead of the rear wheels, four taillights in lieu of six, and a tail 1½ inches longer. In 1981, Ferrari offered the advanced and reliable Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection system for the first time in a 12-cylinder Ferrari, hence the “i” in BBi.
For the Ferrari faithful, the addition of the fuel injection was a welcome change, and the BBi is considered the most civilized of the Berlinetta Boxers. The fuel injection brought about an increase of 20 foot-pounds of torque, helping the car feel much more tractable overall. With a potent 335 hp, performance remained extraordinary, and the 512 BBi could reach 60 mph from a dead start in just 5. 4 seconds, leading to a healthy top speed of 174 mph. By the time production came to an end in 1984, Ferrari had built just 1, 007 fuel-injected BBs before they were replaced with the Testarossa. The model was also the last Ferrari to be hand-built under the guidance of famed coachbuilder Sergio Scaglietti. Examples from the final year of production are particularly sought after, as Ferrari only produced approximately 144 cars in total.
The magnificent 1984 Ferrari 512 BBi featured here is finished in stunning Deep Red over black leather interior and has been fitted with every available option, including factory air conditioning, leather interior, power windows, and more. Purchased new, it was delivered to Southern California to world-renowned Pebble Beach-winning Bill De Carr. Bill restored over 45 Pebble Beach-winning classics and was so sought after that Enzo Ferrari himself tried to hire him. With over 30 years of single Southern California ownership, meticulously maintained to the highest standards and very well-preserved, this 1984 Ferrari 512 BBi is the perfect addition to any premier collection. This is an incredible opportunity for the most demanding investor, collector, or enthusiast to acquire a Ferrari 512 BBi that is what I believe to be one of the very best, lowest-mile examples on the market today.

Upon its introduction in late 1984, the Testarossa stunned the world with its avant-garde styling. Long low and wide, the Testarossa appeared even more so thanks to the extensive use of horizontal slatting, a feature that would be replicated both on other Ferraris and on many other lesser cars. Yet beneath these striking ...
