Vehicle Description

Ferrari 512 BB 4.9 V12


Baytree are delighted to offer for sale this immaculately presented 1978 Ferrari 512BB finished in Rosso Chiaro with Pelle Nera interior.

The car has been impeccably cared during its life with a fully documented and detailed service record going all the way back to 1980. Documentation with the car includes the original purchase invoice with correspondence from the first owner and Maranello Concessionaires who supplied the car new in 1978.

For most of the last 20 years or so it has been looked after by Omega Motorsport Ltd in Buckingham, the maintenance carried out during this period is extensive and no expense was spared in this regard.

The most recent service work carried out in April 2020 was done by Bentleys Automotive in Cheshire which included the all important cambelt service. So, in that regard the car is ready to be driven and enjoyed by the new owner.

This particular car has uprated suspension, brakes, and tyres. The brakes are the BB Le Mans type giving better resistance to fade. The exhaust system is the sports ‘spaghetti’ type and give a 15-20BHP increase in power.

It is a car that has been used all year round except for when there has been salt on the roads. It is also very well known to the Ferrari owners club often being used for social functions as well as track and speed events.

The car comes complete with its original owners’ manuals & service booklet, original Ferrari toolkit and a lever arch file containing service invoices back to 1980, MOT certificates back to 1984, purchase documents from 1978, a full workshop manual and various other history including photographs, concours competition certificates (1st prize in 2005) and tax discs back to 99.

Any inspection is welcome and if you would like any further information please do not hesitate to get in touch.
