1981 Ferrari 512 BB

Published By

To this day, the 1981 Ferrari 512 BB is one of the most recognizable models from the prestigious Italian automaker. From 1976 to 1981, Ferrari produced a total of 929 carbureted 512 BB examples, this is one of them. This is a special Prancing Horse featuring a 4.9L flat 12-cylinder engine in the mid-rear of the car.

Combine that with rear-wheel-drive and a five-speed manual transaxle to have the perfect recipe for an authentic vintage Ferrari driving experience. The 12-cylinder engine sounds amazing when it is idling but the way it roars when you get on it is seductive to any gearhead.
