Professional Ferrari 512 Supplier
The Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer (BB) 512 succeeded the 365 GT4 BB in 1976. Equipped with a larger displacement to almost 5.0 liters and a slightly modified bodywork it became the fastest production car at the time. The regular design triple light clusters with a reflector, turn signal and stop light on either side featured on the 365 GT4 BB and 308 were replaced and it had a new multi-tubular frame and an all-independent suspension which reflected Ferrari’s racing experience.
At the last of the BB series, the 512 BBi replaced the 512 BB in 1981, with the adoption of a Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection system instead of the Weber carburetors. This assisted with producing cleaner emissions and offering a better balance of performance and drivability and as a result, it was considered as one of the most functional of all the Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer models. A change to metric sized wheel and the Michelin TRX tire system, small white running lights in the nose, and red rear fog lamps outside of the tail pipes in the rear valance made this model variant different to its replacement.
Production of the The 512 TR started in 1991 and was the evolution of the Testarossa. Its interior was redesigned to increase comfort and ergonomics and the exterior facelift was designed to improve aerodynamics. The looks were also elevated thanks to the bigger 18” wheels. A not so visible change on the TR was the engine and transmission assembly location on the chassis which had been dropped by 30mm to lower the center of gravity to improve the cars roadholding. It returned to Ferraris naming of model titles using characters with the ‘5’ referring to the engines cubic capacity in liters, the ‘12’ the number of cylinders and the ‘TR’ an abbreviation of Testarossa.
The 512 M was the last version of the Testarossa and the final Ferrari to boast a flat 12 engine with only 501 cars produced between 1994-1996. Its power was upped to 446 bhp which gave an impressive top speed of 196 mph. Bringing the decade old car into the modern day, the 512 M had a Bosch ABS system, newly designed steering wheel and modern air con, along with noticeable differences to the exterior to help improve the aerodynamics. The wheels on the 512 M had a unique marmite design - which you either love or hate - but does differentiate the model from the other 512 series. The exterior saw the signature pop up headlamps replaced with fixed ones while the front nose took on a rounder shape and air ducts were stamped into the hood, like the Ferrari 456, making it a racier, lighter, faster and more hi-tech version of the 512 TR.
