Profile

New European legislation on noise and pollution forced Ferrari to make major modifications to the 365 BB and so, in 1976, the 512 BB was born. Exterior changes included larger wheels, a new front spoiler and extra cooling ducts, while the engine was enlarged to nearly 5 litres.

However, the new larger engine was actually down on power and performance as legislation had enforced a lower maximum rpm. This was addressed, to a degree, in 1981 with the addition of Bosch fuel injection taking power to 360hp.

While many believe it does not have the charisma of its predecessor the Daytona, there can be no denying that the BB has its own place in supercar history thanks to its stunning looks and mid engine design
