Enzo Ferrari founded Scuderia Ferrari in 1929 to build race cars. His long and distinguished history of podium finishes confirm that he did this quite well. The road cars didn't arrive until 1947 and even then only as a concession to keep his beloved, but expensive, racing program funded. Today the prancing stallion is recognized around the world, symbolizing luxury, power, speed, and wealth.

The 512 BB was introduced at the 1971 Turin Salon. It followed the 365 GTB/4 Berlinetta Boxer - Ferrari's fastest road car to date. The 512 BB engine was mounted behind the passenger compartment. The Pininfarina styling was similar to the 365 GT4 BB, but with a chin spoiler and NACA ducts to cool the exhaust system. The wider rear track aided handling and a dry sump helped lower the center of gravity. The 512 BB's 4.9-liter flat-12 was mated to a five-speed manual transmission. It boasted a higher compression ratio than its predecessor yet retained the four triple-barrel Weber carburetors.

The 40/60 weight distribution could make handling tricky at the claimed 188 mph top end. Despite slightly less power than its predecessor, the 512 BB produced more torque which allowed for better drivability and acceleration. In particular it matched up quite well with its nemesis, the Lamborghini Miura, and held its own with the new Countach. Interestingly, this car was used by Road and Track Magazine - driven by Sam Posey - in a 1982 'Super Car' comparison with Lamborghini.
