Ferrari 512 BB – 1979

Beautiful and very unique Ferrari 512 BB with a demonstrable mileage of only 16,317 KM!

This Ferrari 512 has been in family ownership for over 40 years and was bought in 1979 by René Herzog, professional racing driver and collector at the time. The Ferrari is therefore always maintained at the best technical level and is in absolute top condition!
The original and very rare Conolly beige leather interior with Daytona chairs is in new condition. The 5-liter, 12-cylinder boxer engine runs and sounds great. This is the most wanted carburetor version of which only 929 are produced.

Herzog drove professionally in the touring car championship (predecessor of the current DTM) in the 60s – 80s.
Among other things the world championship sports car with different Ferrari’s 512 BB M and later on international classic car races with the Ferrari GTO, Ferrari SWB and Shelby Mustang. In 1971, Herzog participated with Herbert Müller in a Ferrari 512 M in the sports car championship. In 1979 he bought this Ferrari 512BB, the street version of the 512 M, to ride to the races.
On behalf of Herzog the car was modified by Corse Clienti, Ferrari’s special department for VIP customers and drivers. The adjustments included larger wheels, wider bodywork and a sports exhaust.

After 35 years, Rene Herzog sold the vehicle within the family to his cousin in 2014, the Ferrari remained in Switzerland and was moved to Germany and thus to the EU from April 2017.

This 512 BB has air conditioning and a cigarette lighter / ashtray, but is definitely a non-smoking vehicle.

The Ferrari is technically in an absolutely excellent condition, the interior is as good as new.
In 2011/12 the odometer reading was 016,013, with this reading the last major service including replacement of the timing belt plus some minor restoration work was carried out for an amount of almost 40,000 Swiss Francs.

The Ferrari is damage-free, smoke-free and is still in possession of a German license plate. All changes have been approved by TÜV, documentation is available.
