Berlinetta Boxer is the name for a series of cars produced by Ferrari in Italy between 1973 and 1984. They used a mid-mounted flat-12 engine, replacing the FR Daytona, and succeeded in the Ferrari stable by the Testarossa.
Production of the BB was a major step for Enzo Ferrari. He felt that a mid-engine road car would be too difficult for his buyers to handle, and it took many years for his engineers to convince him to adopt the layout. This attitude began to change as the marque lost its racing dominance in the late 1950s to mid-engine competitors. The mid-engine 4-, 6-, and 8-cylinder Dino racing cars was the result, and Ferrari later allowed for the production Dino road cars to use the layout as well. The company also moved its V12 engines to the rear with its P and LM racing cars, but the Daytona was launched with its engine in front. It was not until 1971 that a mid-engine 12-cylinder road car would appear.

The Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injected 512BBi introduced in 1981 was the last of the series. The fuel injected motor produced cleaner emissions and kept the same power as the 512BB but achieved it at 6000rpm, nearly 12% lower. External differentiators from the 512BB besides badging include a change to metric sized wheels and the Michelin TRX metric tire system, small white running lights in the nose, and red rear fog lamps outboard of the exhaust pipes in the rear valence. Only 965 512BBi Left hand drive cars were produced and our car was first registered in 1984.
