"The second Premium offering is a 1984 Ferrari BB 512i, a European-market model from the final year of production and one of 1,007 fuel-injected Berlinetta Boxers built. The car has received service in 2022 including a new timing belt, a valve adjustment, fresh transaxle seals, new tires, and more."
This 1984 Ferrari 512 BBi is one of 1,007 fuel-injected Berlinetta Boxers built over a four-year production run, and it is powered by a mid-mounted 4.9L flat-12 paired with a five-speed manual transaxle. Finished in Rosso Corsa over tan leather, the car features center-lock metric wheels, disc brakes, Bosch fuel injection, air conditioning, a Bluetooth stereo, aftermarket speakers, and a gated shifter. The car is said to have been individually imported from Europe to the United States when new and remained in Georgia with its original owner until 1999, when it was acquired by an owner in California’s Bay Area, from whom the current owner acquired it in 2011. Work in 2022 included a timing-belt service, adjusting the valves, setting the timing, resealing the transaxle, and replacing the tires, axle boots, spark plugs, air filters, exhaust gaskets, and drive belts. Now showing 18k miles, this 512 BBi is offered on dealer consignment as part of the Mohr Imports Monterey Collection Sale with recent service records, manufacturer’s literature, uninstalled audio equipment, a tool roll, a clean Carfax report, and a clean California title.
The Pininfarina-designed bodywork was executed by Scaglietti, and construction consists of a steel semi-monocoque with front and rear subframes, aluminum doors and clamshells, and lower panels in fiber-reinforced plastic. This example is finished in Rosso Corsa, and features include pop-up headlights, fog lights, a front spoiler, and NACA side ducts. The car is not equipped with side-marker lights. Paint-meter readings are provided toward the end of the gallery.
Five-spoke center-lock metric wheels with Ferrari etchings are mounted with three-ear chrome knockoffs and wear 240/55VR415 Michelin TRX tires, which were installed in May 2022. Each corner is equipped with disc brakes.
The interior is upholstered in tan leather, and the cabin is finished with contrasting brown carpeting. Equipment includes air conditioning, power windows, and a gated shifter as well as aftermarket speakers and an Alpine CD player with Bluetooth connectivity. A removed Pioneer equalizer is included.
A three-spoke Momo steering wheel sits ahead of Veglia instrumentation that includes a 200-mph speedometer, a tachometer with a 6,500-rpm redline, and auxiliary gauges that extend to the center of the dashboard. The stitching above the glovebox is not straight. The five-digit odometer shows 18k miles, approximately 4k of which have been added by the current owner.
The 4,943cc F110A flat-12 was rated at 335 horsepower and 333 lb-ft of torque when new. Fuel delivery is controlled by a Bosch K-Jetronic injection system utilizing twin CIS fuel distributors. In March 2022 a timing-belt service was performed by Grand Prix Motors of Campbell, California, during which the engine was removed from the car, the engine bay was cleaned, the valves were adjusted, the timing was set, and the timing belts, air filters, exhaust gaskets, spark plugs, and drive belts were replaced. The car passed a California emissions test that month, and then in May 2022 the distributor was disassembled and cleaned, and the rear crankshaft seal and the battery were replaced. More than $15k in receipts from 2022 are viewable in the gallery below.
Power is delivered to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transaxle. In May 2022 the transaxle was resealed, the fluid was changed, the CV axles were greased, and the axle boots were replaced. Additional photos of the underside are presented in the gallery below.
Recent service records are pictured in the gallery and will accompany the vehicle.
The California Bureau of Automotive Repair applied the above label to the car in July 1999, which corresponds with the first time the vehicle was subjected to (and passed) California emissions testing.
The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists registration activity in Georgia and California, with entries as early as 1995.
