This Fuel-Injected Ferrari BB 512 i Is Your Ticket To Early ’80s Supercar Thrills

First unveiled at the 1971 Turin Motor Show, the Ferrari 365 GT/4 BB was the Prancing Horse company’s first “Boxer-engined” model, also denoted as “BB” for “Berlinetta Bialbero” (or “dual camshaft”). After spending four years in (limited) production, the 365 BB was replaced with the BB 512 in 1976. Getting its name from its 5.0L V12 engine, the BB 512 was also upgraded in 1981 via the addition of Bosch K-Jetronic CIS fuel injection, resulting in the BB 512 i.

This particular BB 512 i is one of the 1,007 specimens built over its four-year production run which ended in 1984. It was also the fourth-last unit produced before Ferrari officially pulled the plug on the car. After leaving the factory in ’84, this fuel-injected dual camshaft V12 was shipped to California, where it remained until 2005 when it was sent to London. After being serviced, the car finally made its way to Belgium in 2015. In addition to being in immaculate shape – and having yet to roll over the 20,000-mile mark on the odometer — this ’84 example is also certified by the world-renowned Ferrari Classiche Department. Adorned in the iconic Rosso Corsa red livery, this mid-’80s supercar is currently on offer at Bavarian Motorcars in Harelbeke, Belgium where it carries a price of $281,000.
