512 BB – German delivery
- Rare color combination ex works
- engine overhaul in 2007
- since 15 years in last hand
This 1979 Ferrari 512 BB is a German delivery and has been in last hand for 15 years
The Ferrari 512 BB was introduced in 1976 as the successor to the 365 GT/4 BB. The designation Ferrari 512 referred to the 5.0 liter engine and the 12 cylinders, analogous to the racing sports car Ferrari 512S.
A total of only 929 units of the 512 BB were built between 1976 and 1981. The 512 BB was replaced in 1981 by its slightly modified successor, the 512 BBi, which had slightly less power than the BB.
The car we offer was delivered new via Auto Becker in Düsseldorf. The original exterior color was Blu Dino Metalizzatto with beige leather 3218, both changed already in the 1980’s, as an old bill of sale from 1989 already proves that the car was already red at that time. This was common and a large number of Ferraris were repainted in Ferrari red in those years, as it was in keeping with the spirit of the times.
The current German owner bought the car 15 years ago in Switzerland, where it had been since the 1980s. The car is registered in Germany and there are no further import duties in Germany. In 2007 the engine was overhauled in Switzerland on his behalf by Sportgarage Ruch AG.
The original on-board folder is no longer available, but there are maintenance invoices from 2000, 2003 and 2007 as well as the Swiss exhaust maintenance booklet with entries from 2000, 2001 and 2003.
The car can be inspected by appointment at any time in 33415 Verl. A lifting platform is of course available for this purpose.
