Ferrari 365 GT4 Berlinetta Boxer

The Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer was produced by Ferrari between 1973 and 1984. Replacing the front engined Daytona, it was the first in a series of Ferraris to use a mid-mounted flat-12 engine. The 365 GT4 BB was first shown at the 1971 Turin Motor Show. Designed to rival the Lamborghini Miura and the newly developed Lamborghini Countach, it was released for sale in 1973 at the Paris Motor Show. 387 were built, of which 88 were right-hand drive.
The engine produced 380 hp, slightly more than the Daytona. The engine was mounted above a five-speed manual transmission. The concept for the howling 4.4-litre flat 12 was taken from the team’s Formula 1 programme, and sung away from its longitudinal, mid-mounted position – a first for Ferrari.
This 365 GT4 Berlinetta Boxer made $510,000 in 2016.
