Ferrari 512BB

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 more than 40 years and was bought in 1979 by René Herzog, at the time a professional racing driver and collector. The Ferrari has therefore always been maintained at the best technical level and is in absolute top condition! The original and very rare Conolly beige leather interior with Daytona seats is in new condition. The 5-liter, 12-cylinder boxer engine runs and sounds great. It is the most sought after carburettor version of which only 929 have been produced. Herzog drove professionally in the touring car championship (predecessor of the current DTM) in the 1960s - 1980s. Among other things, the sports car world championship with several Ferrari's 512 BB M and later at international classic car races with the Ferrari GTO, Ferrari SWB and Shelby Mustang. In 1971 Herzog took part in the sports car championship together with Herbert Müller in a Ferrari 512 M. In 1979 he bought this Ferrari 512BB, the street version of the 512 M, to drive to the races. The Ferrari was adapted at the time, including a special set of wider wheels, rear fender widening 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 cigarette lighter / ashtray, but it is indeed 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, at this stand the last major overhaul including replacement timing belt plus some minor restoration work took place for an amount of almost 40,000 Swiss Francs. The Ferrari is damage-free, smoke-free and still has a German registration. All changes have been approved by the TÜV, documentation is available. There is also a letter from Rene Herzog where he confirms the history and adjustments.
