Ferrari 512i Berlinetta Boxer


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.

Supplied by Auto Becker Düsseldorf on the 11th August 1983, this fabulous original untouched example was bought by the President of the Ferrari Club Germany from new.  The Boxer changed hands in 2003, having become part of a Ferrari collection from that date.

We note that the Ferrari is supplied with manuals, service books, tools and jack, and we are delighted to note that the car even wears original paint. Said to run beautifully, this stunning Ferrari has covered a mere 30,000kms from new.

Described as being in excellent condition in all respects, this is a truly collectors-grade example of the iconic Boxer.

Geliefert von Auto Becker Düsseldorf am 11. August 1983, wurde dieses fabelhafte Original vom Präsidenten des Ferrari Club Deutschland gekauft. 2003 wechselte der Boxer den Besitzer und wurde Teil einer Ferarri-Sammlung.
Der Wagen wird mit Handbüchern, Servicebüchern, Werkzeugen und Wagenheber übergeben, und erfreulicherweise trägt das Auto sogar noch seinen original Anstrich. Dieser atemberaubende Ferrari fährt sich großartig, und ist nur 30.000 Km gefahren.
Beschrieben in ausgezeichnetem Zustand, ist dies wahrlich ein tolles Beispiel eines ikonischen Boxers.
