Ferrari’s newest Berlinetta Boxer model was introduced at the 1981 Frankfurt Salon, and although it appeared to be very similar to the outgoing model from a distance, its biggest change was found under the rear clamshell and in the new model’s nomenclature. The 512 BBi replaced the 512 BB’s four Weber carburettors with a Bosh K-Jetronic fuel-injection system, hence the “i” in 512 BBi. This upgrade proved the 512 BBi to be much more user-friendly, making the car not only easier to start but also easier to maintain.

For many clients, the addition of the fuel injection was a welcome change, and the 512 BBi is often considered to be the most liveable of Ferrari’s Berlinetta Boxer models.

The 512 BBi also received a handful of cosmetic updates, including fitting exposed driving lights in the nose, shortening the aluminium egg-crate grille, and fitting rectangular parking lights in a new shroud for the exhaust at the rear. Just 1,007 examples were built from 1981 to 1984, before production transitioned to the Testarossa.

Italian-delivered from new in 1983, this late model Boxer was specified in the traditional colour scheme of Rosso Corsa with a Nero leather interior. The mileage is a very sensible 31,000 recorded kilometres from new, with we are pleased to note a major service completed in 2015 at a cost of 11,000.

Offered with the relevant tools, books, invoices for maintenance and repair, and described as being in good condition in all respects, these Boxers are amongst our favourite Ferraris from all eras.

Délivré de nouveau de l’Italie en 1983, cette modèle Boxer a été spécifiée dans le schéma de couleur traditionnelle de Rosso Corsa avec un intérieur en cuir Nero. Le kilométrage est 31.000 kilomètres enregistrées de nouveau et la voiture a eu un grand entretien en 2015 à un coût de  11.000.


La voiture et livrée aves les outils, les livres, les factures pertinentes pour l’entretien et la réparation, et décrite comme étant en bon état à tous égards, ces boxeurs sont parmi les Ferraris préférées de toutes les époques.
