The Ferrari 512 was developed and built from 1969 to 1970 as a five-liter 12-cylinder racing powerhouse. There were only 25 ever built, and they were used in the 1970 International Championship for Makes.
The 512 was adopted from the P series prototype racing cars, which were built in the mid-1960s. The engines had a 400+ HP output with a 48-valve mid-mounted and naturally aspirated alignment. The transmission was the Ferrari 5-speed manual, and the interiors were designed for sport and racing performance. The first win that these vehicles had was the 1970 12 hour of Sebring. 24 of the 25 vehicles built were sold to collectors at the end of the 1971 racing season.
