Classic Car Overview

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys Paris event, 5 February 2020.
  • Offered from the Poster Car Collection
  • Just 820 km from new, one of the lowest-mileage 512 BBs in existence
  • Thirty-four years of previous single ownership
  • Overwhelmingly original throughout

Delivered new to the U.S. to an owner in Texas in May of 1981, the 512 BB presented here, bearing chassis number 35409, had been purchased by an enthusiast and collector of sports cars who paid $90,000 for the car at Auto Palace of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where the car was federalised for use in the United States. As stated on the purchase invoice, the odometer read just 400 kilometres. A further 314 kilometres were accrued in EPA testing.

Fascinatingly, the 512 BB would barely be driven over the next 33 years, remaining in storage in the owners garage, still wearing plastic on its doorsills. In 2014, chassis number 35409 finally rolled out of the garage in Texas, was purchased by its next owner and flown across the pond to the UK, where it has remained ever since. Importantly, in March of 2016, the car received a mechanical recommissioning, which included a full engine-out service and replacement of the cambelts and clutch.

Today, chassis number 35409 remains as one of the lowest-mileage 512 BBs in existence, having been driven just 820 km from new. Unrivalled in originality, this is a 512 BB worthy of inclusion in the worlds finest Ferrari collections.

  • Est reste 34 ans chez le mme propritaire

Livre neuve en 1981 aux tats-Unis un automobiliste du Texas, la 512 BB prsente ici, chssis n 35409, a t achete par un passionn et collectionneur de voitures de sport qui a pay pour lacqurir 90 000 $ Auto Palace de Pittsburgh, en Pennsylvanie, o elle a t adapte aux rgles fdrales pour pouvoir tre utilise dans ce pays. Comme le prcise la facture dachat, le compteur kilomtrique indiquait tout juste 400 km. Au cours des essais pour lEnvironmental Protection Agency, 314 km de plus ont t parcourus.

Il est fascinant de constater que cette 512 BB na t pratiquement pas utilise au cours des 33 ans qui ont suivi : elle est reste labri dans le garage du propritaire, portant encore les protections de plastique sur les seuils de portes. En 2014, cette voiture n 35409 est enfin sortie de son garage du Texas : elle a t achete par son actuel propritaire, qui la importe en Angleterre o elle est reste depuis. En mars 2016, la voiture a bnfici dune rvision mcanique, avec une opration dentretien complet du moteur incluant le remplacement des courroies de transmission et de lembrayage.
