Vintage car collectors can now set their eyes on a fully refurbished Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer (512 BBi). A successor to the famed Daytona, the 1981 512 BBi was the first Ferrari road car with a mid-engine configuration — a layout the legendary Enzo Ferrari resisted for a long time, fearing that a mid-engine design would be too dangerous for drivers without race training.

Equipped with Bosch K-Jetronic CIS fuel injection to achieve the perfect balance between drivability and performance — hence the ‘i’ in ‘BBi’ — this 4.9L 12-cylinder beast of a racer makes 0-60mph in 5.3 seconds and reaches a top speed of 179 mph.

The pristine condition of this 512 BBi is thanks to having a very few owners over the years, the first owner having held onto this Prancing Horse until 2008, and mainly used it as a collector’s piece. After 33 years, the supercar underwent thorough refurbishment to bring it back to its original condition, and in 2016/2017, this Berlinetta Boxer got a complete engine overhaul. In addition, the Ferrari’s gaskets, rubbers, suspensions and brakes have all been renewed by renowned Brussels Ferrari Specialist GiPi Motors. On the exterior, the Rosso Corsa Ferrari has been topped up to a perfection, giving the two-tone masterpiece the fiery aesthetic it deserves. Most amazingly, the entire interior is original: the cockpit has remained completely damage-free after all these years.

For collectors interested in this vintage supercar, it’s currently selling for €295,000 EUR (roughly $334,390 USD) over at Prins Classics.

Ferrari enthusiasts will also be happy to learn that the revered brand is planning a hybrid supercar and five new models for 2019.
