1979 Ferrari 512 BB with period race history.

This example was first delivered as a UK car in late 1979 to its first owner Mr John Foulston. Foulston was famous for having an extensive collection of race cars and for owning Brands Hatch Race circuit.

This Boxer was a personal favourite of his and was always maintained meticulously. In 1980 when the car was just one year old, Lanzante were commissioned to upgrade the car with Genuine Ferrari LM specification parts including Pistons, Camshafts, Carburettor upgrades and an Exhaust system. Foulston subsequently then started to race the car.

Purchased in 1984 by its second owner Mr Robbie Sterling, of Group C sport car and Le Mans fame, the car received further upgrades and continued to be used in competition, until conversion back to road going trim.

The car remains in this specification to this day along with its early 512 BBLM (mark 1) Front splitter, Ram air fed air boxes, AP racing brakes, Fully adjustable Koni shock absorbers, Heavy duty clutch, 11 & 9 inch wheels and extended rear wheel arches.

The current owner has been in possession of the vehicle since 1992. The car is presented in a very near to concours condition having had a full engine rebuild, a bare metal re-spray and various other work carried out by marquee specialist Mototechnique.

A substantial history file accompanies the car detailing all servicing and MOT's during its 40,000 miles on the road, and the vehicles period race history.

A unique opportunity to purchase this stunning example.
