Ferrari 512 BB

Ferrari 512 BBNew European legislation on noise and pollution forced Ferrari Company to make major modifications to the 365 BB and so, in 1976, the 512 BB was born. Exterior changes included larger wheels, a new front spoiler and extra cooling ducts, while the engine was enlarged to nearly 5 litres.

However, the new larger engine was actually down on power and performance as legislation had enforced a lower maximum rpm. This was addressed, to a degree, in 1981 with the addition of Bosch fuel injection.
