A rare left-hand drive 1978 Ferrari BB512 will headline Anglia Car Auction’s final Classic sale of 2022 on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th November.
One of 929 cars produced for the global market, Ferrari’s Berlinetta Boxer was originally launched as the 365 GT4 BB in 1973 but was upgraded in 1976 and became the BB512. It was to be powered by a carburettor fed 5-litre mid-mounted flat 12 engine that produced 360 BHP.
Finished in the best colour combination, it was purchased by the vendor in 2015 when it was first registered in the UK and has remained in storage since. The odometer records just 15,982 kilometres.
Prior to the auction, the BB512 will have a cam belt service by a well-known specialist. The spare wheel, toolkit, cover, jack and copper hammer are retained within the car. It’s history file contains the original marketing brochure, workshop manual, export certificate and HM Customs document.
With an estimate of £185,000 – £205,000, this Ferrari is Italian motoring at its finest and a huge investment opportunity for discerning collector.
Speaking of collectors, there are around 50 classics offered at ‘no reserve’, giving potential buyers the opportunity to swell their garages with highly sought marques at a bargain price.
Classics such as a stunning two-door manual 1963 Alvis TD21, one of nine cars from a private, long-term collection belonging to a retired engineer. This Alvis, finished in Alice Blue, has had just three owners from new including the vendor since 1992.
Several of the vendor’s cars have been rescued over several years and subject to restoration only to remain within his own storage. These include a leap of Jaguars – a 1968 E-Type Series 1 4.2 Roadster, a 1991 MkII 2.4 M/OD, a 1954 MkVII Saloon, and a 1955 XK140 FHC LHD project car.
For those looking for a winter project, Anglia Car Auctions is offering around 20 projects including a 1975 Montreal LHD, one of three Alfa Romeos needing restoration. With an estimate of £12,000-£14,000, it has been off the road since 1984, so only has 4,215 miles on the clock.
As well as an incredible line-up of cars and motorcycles, the Classic sale also has over 300 lots of automobila and the unique opportunity to purchase one of 68 original pieces of artwork by global rockstar Chris Rea.
Viewing is offered on Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th November from 9am to 4pm (closing at 5pm). On sale days, the gates open at 9am on both Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th November.
