Good news for Jenson Button, Formula One driver fans. Bonhams had just announced that the 1978 Ferrari 512BB Berlinetta Boxer will be sold public. The event will take place on April 11th 2011 at the Collectors' Motor Cars at the RAF Museum, Hendon.
There were only 952 512 BB cars produced and this one is one of them. It's really an honor to drive such a supercar, when you know it makes you feel great even now after so any years since it was produced.
Of course time was a little cruel with it as in the last 33 years it needed repairs and adjustments that sum ?94,000. Just last year, the 512 BB had its last serious intervention that included re-gassing the air conditioning system, tire change and different other insignificant corrections.
The reason Button decided to give up the car is that his busy life at work doesn't allow him the luxury to enjoy the car as he should.
An estimative price for the car was established at ?90,000-?110,000 or at least this is what Bonhams, Head of Motor Cars, declared.
