Ferrari Type 512 BBi

Ferrari introduced a stunning new mid-engine car at the 1971 Turin Motor Show to compete head-on with the Lamborghini Miura and Maserati Bora supercars. All new from the ground up, the new model featured a low, wide and sensuous Pininfarina design and hand-built body by Scaglietti. Reminiscent of Ferrari's Formula 1 racers, it was powered by a mid-mounted "boxer" twelve-cylinder engine, displacing 4.4-liters. The new model, named 365 GT4 BB, was finally released as a production car in 1973 and marketed as the fastest road car ever offered by Ferrari.

In keeping with tradition, the car was relentlessly refined and an improved version was released in 1976 as the 512 BB with an enlarged engine and significantly more torque. In 1981, Ferrari introduced the 512 BBi at the Paris Salon, with the "i" reflecting the installation of Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection, allowing easier compliance with U.S. emissions standards, while maintaining performance. As expected, the 512 BBi was capable of remarkable performance numbers: zero-to-sixty times of 5.4 seconds, a top speed of at least 175 miles per hour and a quarter-mile time of 14.3 seconds, at 103 miles per hour.

The 512 BB designation can be broken down; the 5 indicates the displacement, although it is actually just under at 4942 cc, the 12 represents the number of cylinders that are capable of producing 360 bhp. The first B is for Berlinetta, which is essentially a closed coupe, the second B stands for Boxer. The name 'Boxer' comes from the engine which is vertically opposed, meaning the cylinders are arranged in a flat configuration and opposed to each other by 180 degrees. This was the first time Ferrari had used a Boxer engine in a road going car and the Flat 12 made it possible to mount the engine above the transmission, which allowed the space to create a better driving position. The Boxer engine was extremely powerful giving a top speed of 188 mph, 0-60 in 5.5 seconds and 0-100 in just 13.2 seconds. The positioning of the engine also added to handling the centralized weight allowing for faster cornering. The car is built around a tubular steel frame which holds the engine, transmission, steering and suspension components. The cabin is made of steel, the lower body panels are formed from fiberglass and the nose and tail are clothed in alloy clamshells. The panels joints are all obvious, with no attempt made to hide them. The wishbone suspension is surrounded with twin coil springs at the rear and the steering is rack and pinion. All of the details add to the pure race driving experience. When designing the Boxer, Pininfarina did away with years of Ferrari design culminated in the Daytona and created a true racing car for the road. The Daytona looked back, the Boxer forward to a new era of mid-engined supercars. The Boxer was low slung and racy and was in direct competition with the mid-engined Lamborghini Miura. Ferrari had their racing heritage, experience and dominance with the 312PB to draw from and this gave the Boxer its competitive edge. The racing influence is carried into the spartan interior. The car is designed and built around the driver.
