French title

The Ferrari 512 BB that we present today was sold new in France and was registered on November 22nd, 1979. Painted in Rosso Corsaand fitted with a black leather interior, it obviously had only three owners until today. Its current owner bought it during a sale organized by Maître Osenat on December 14th, 2003. The odometer now shows 21,193 non-certifiable kilometers. The owner of the car told us that he had driven a lot with this BB, he would have had the clutch and belts replaced 8,000 kilometers ago. It is in rare original conditions, it has never been repainted and its patina is unique on this kind of cars. Its interior is also entirely original. This BB still has her almost complete tool kit, as well as its spare wheel. All the specific elements of a French version are present, like the wheels with a nut and not a central butterfly, white front plexiglass and not orange, or yellow headlights and fog lights. We were able to test the car for a short distance in order to verify in particular the shifting of the five gears, which went OK. However, the Ferrari requires a general overhaul in order to be able to take the road, we thus noted a defect of sealing at the level of the cylinder head covers. The 512 BB is a great automobile to drive, extremely efficient and much sought after in a carburetor version. This copy is particularly desirable because of its rare original condition!
