The Ferrari 512BB was a rare sight on British roads, replacing the Daytona at the top of Ferrari’s line-up. Launched at the Paris Motor Show in 1976, the range-topping 512BB was at the pinnacle of 1970’s supercar motoring.
The car’s engine shared its internal dimensions with the V12 from the Daytona but was spread out to 180° like Ferrari’s 1970 Formula One cars and was mounted above a five-speed manual transmission. One major difference in this engine was its use of timing belts rather than chains. The engine was enlarged to 4942 cc, with an increased compression ratio of 9.2:1. A dual-plate clutch handled the added torque and eased the pedal effort. Engine power was 360 bhp (268 kW) @6200 rpm giving the car a top speed of 179 mph, and an acceleration time of 0 -62 mph (0 - 100 km/h) in 5.4 secs.
At the end of the 1960’s, Hans-Albert Zender transformed his great passion for motorsport into something great for all lovers of sports cars. Over the years, Zender grew and increasingly refined its manufacture of exclusive car accessories for car makers and stylists, transforming many of the great cars into something even more special.
Supplied new by Auto Italia Ltd Ferrari, Hong Kong in February 1980, they carried on maintaining the vehicle until 2016. Their invoices, along with Ferrari specialists form an impressive history file. After a recent full service, brake fluid service, anti-freeze service, belt change, new tyre set and engine detailing, this 512 BB is now the perfect addition to any Ferrari collection.
