The Ferrari 365 GT/4 Berlinetta Boxer was revealed at Turin in 1971; the first mid-mounted flat-12 engine to feature in a road model. The model and series in fact would develop the nickname of 'Boxer' for its opposing pistons.
The 365 BB was eventually released in late 1973 with the majority of cars only leaving the factory in 1974; a total of 387 were built in the following three years before the car was upgraded to the 512 BB.
However, the 365 remains both the original, lightest and rarest of all the Boxer models, instantly recognisable due to its triple rear lights and 'pea-shooter' exhaust tips.
These factors entail that the 365 GT/4 BB is the most valuable and sought after of the entire Boxer family and with the addition of the BBs being the last truly hand-built Ferraris, values look set to hold strong in the coming years.
The example we are delighted to offer rolled off the production line at the Ferrari Factory in June 1974, wearing body number 168. It was finished in the incredibly rare colour combination of Bianco Polo over a Pelle Blu leather interior both of which are still original to this day.
The car sits today in excellent, highly original condition and is showing just over 26,000 miles from new. It also benefits from being matching numbers and has recently been awarded Classiche Certification from the Ferrari Factory to certify its originality and quality. 365 GT4 BBs have always been and will always remain highly desirable for both their exceptional looks and impressive driving characteristics. This example presents a great opportunity to obtain one of the rarest and most original 365 GT4 BBs and would make a great addition to any collection.
