FACTORY OPTIONS INCLUDE:- METALLIC PAINT, VM 8500 LEATHER INTERIOR

One of just 101 UK supplied cars, this special Ferrari was a rare sight on British roads, replacing the Daytona at the top of Ferrari’s line-up.

The engine shared its internal dimensions with the V12 from the Daytona, but was spread out to 180° as on Ferrari’s 1970 Formula One car and was mounted above a five-speed manual transmission. One major difference in this engine was its use of timing belts rather than chains.  The name 512 referred to the car’s 5 litre, 12 cylinder engine; a deviation from Ferrari’s established practice of naming 12-cylinder road cars (as the 365 BB) after their cylinder displacement. The engine was enlarged to 4942 cc, with an increased compression ratio of 9.2:1. A dual-plate clutch handled the added torque and eased the pedal effort.

Engine power was 360 bhp (268 kW) @6200 rpm giving the car a top speed of 179 mph, and an acceleration time of 0 -62 mph ( 0 – 100 km/h) in 5.4 secs.

Available for immediate inspection in our London showrooms.
