Rare Original 3000 Mile Ferrari BBi LHD

Although a thing of beauty, a low mileage classic Ferrari to me is under used and possibly under valued by the owner. We will probably never know why this car has only covered 3000, but is it now so rare that adding miles may scare any future owners into not using it for fear of devaluing it?

Current for sale on ebay at £310000, mileage this low will make it a sound investment.

 

Details from eBay listing -

We are pleased to offer this brilliant investment opportunity of a 3000 mile from new Ferrari BBi .340 bhp, 4,942 cc horizontally opposed alloy 12-cylinder engine with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection, five-speed manual transaxle, front and rear independent suspension with unequal length A-arms, twin rear coil springs, an anti-roll bar, and hydraulic dampers, and four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes. Wheelbase: 2,500 mm.Ferrari chose to display their newest Berlinetta Boxer model for the very first time at the 1981 Frankfurt Salon. Although it was largely similar to the outgoing 512 BB, the major change in this new model was the replacement of the older car’s carburettors with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection, hence the “i” in 512 BBi. The fuel-injection system proved to be vastly more user-friendly, with its bedrock characteristics of easy starting and smooth running and no fussy maintenance and tuning required for the carburettors, as on prior models. Whilst its iconic Pininfarina design remained largely unchanged, the 512 BBi received a handful of minor cosmetic updates: the aluminium egg-crate grille was shortened, exposing the driving lights in the nose, and rectangular parking lights were mounted in a new shroud for the exhaust. Production stretched from 1981 to 1984, and during that time, just 1,007 units were produced. This lovely example is probably one of the best preserved cars in the world today. A totally original car with only 3.000miles from new this BBi is German registered and ready for any inspection in Germany.It has all its tools, books and manuals, some service history due to low mileage, and also a recent service. It still preserves it's totally original paint and the leather interior looks and smells like new.A real time capsule not to be missed by any serious collector.Priced correctly at £310.000 Please feel free to contact us for any further information about this rare car.veloceclassic@veloceclassic.comvelocesports@yahoo.co.uk
