Launched during October 1981's Paris Salon, Ferrari's 512i BB most notably marked the arrival of fuel injection on Ferrari's Flat-12. Replacing the familiar Weber carbs (seen on almost every previous Ferrari model) fuel injection not only improved an engine's flexibility but made it much easier to maintain as well as prolonging the lifetime of the engine. The BBi remained in production for almost three years. A few minor detail changes were made to the bodywork with clear reflectors inserted into the front bumper and supplementary driving lights now exposed in the grille. There were also new wing mirrors. 1007 fuel injected Boxer's were completed of which just 43 were right-hand drive making this the rarest variation of the RHD Boxers. This took entire BB production to just over 2300.
This BBi offered for sale by DK Engineering was delivered new to South Africa in January 1983. The car remained in South Africa until November 2008 when it was imported to the UK. Having spent 95 percent of its lift in Sunny South Africa this car has never been subjected to salty road driving conditions resulting a totally corrosion free example. The vehicle is finished in Rosso with Tan hide and Black Daytona stripes. In December 2008 the engine was removed from the car and cambelts were replaced. At this time the engine also had its valve clearances checked and adjusted. The gearbox was in need of a full rebuild and this was carried out at no expense spared. In June 2009 the clutch was also replaced. Just 300 miles have been covered since the car received its major a service and has now covered an indicated 42,000 miles. The car is currently fitted with upgraded AP brakes but can easily be converted back to standard. Presented in stunning rust free condition the car is ready and reliable in every respect for the next owner to use and enjoy - an opportunity not to be missed!
