In-game descriptionEdit

"One of the leading from the supercar trend of the '70s, competing for the highest top speed alongside the Countach."


Ferrari launched its first mid-engine sports car, the 365 GT4 BB, at the Turin Motor Show in 1971 as an answer to Lamborghini's now legendary Miura[1] model. The letters "BB" in the car's title stood for "Berlinetta Boxer", as a reference to the car's coupe body style and its horizontally-opposed "boxer" engine; the pistons of each cylinder bank were positioned exactly opposite each other on a flat plane.

The 365 GT4 BB started delivery in 1973, but was not so well-received in the supercar market. So, just three years later, Ferrari produced an evolved version of the car called the 512 BB.

The major change was an engine that was enlarged by 600 cc, giving it 5.0 liters in displacement (the name 512 refers to the engine, a 5.0-liter, 12-cylinder). It pumped out 355 HP, which was actually 20 HP less than the 365 GT4 BB's power plant, while torque was 28.9 lb-ft higher at 332.7 lb-ft.

The 512 BB featured a steel tube space frame; the body was composed of steel, aluminum, and reinforced fiberglass. The car's svelte shape was penned by both Pininfarina and Scaglietti. Ferrari claimed both the 365 and 512 had an official top speed of 188 mph (303 km/h), a response to the 186 mph (299 km/h) top speed of the Lamborghini Countach.

There was a major supercar boom in Japan at the time, and popularity was split roughly 50/50 between the 512 BB and the Countach; making them fierce rivals in the Japanese market as well as the world stage.

TriviaEdit

  • Prior to update v1.38, this vehicle was not permitted to enter the Boxer Spirit event in Gran Turismo Sport. This was most likely because the in-game engine classification is V12, as the car's engine is actually not a true boxer engine, but a flat 180-degree V12 with each crankpin used by two opposite pistons (true boxer engines use only one crankpin per piston) and dual camshaft (the BB actually stands for Berlinetta Bialbero).
  • This car, the McLaren P1 GTR '16, the Renault Sport Mégane R.S. Trophy Safety Car and the Toyota Crown Athlete G Safety Car are the only non-Gr.4/Gr.3 cars that can have the light covers changed. In case of the 512 BB, it changes the color of the front blinker lights.
