Ferrari Classiche certified 20,458 miles; major engine service in 2008 Accompanied by service invoices, manuals, and tool kit Claiming only 20,458 original miles and certification by Ferrari Classiche, this beautiful 512 BBi is a particularly fetching example. Chassis number 45929 was completed by the factory in January 1983 and distributed to the famed Brussels retailer Garage Francorchamps in May. The berlinetta was then purchased new and imported to the United States by Michael Sheehans European Auto Sales in Costa Mesa, California. It was subsequently federalized by Dick Fritzs well-known Amerispec Corporation in Danbury, Connecticut. By 1989 the car was titled in New York, and in 1992 it was offered by Jim Carpenter of Tempe, Arizona. In 1996 the Ferrari passed to Mauro Cipolla of Seattle, and it was next sold to an Arizona-based owner around 2000. In August 2000, the BBi was purchased by Harry Matthews of Colorado, and substantial work was performed over the next few years by Ferrari of Denver, including an engine-out service, as documented by numerous invoices. In 2009 the Ferrari was purchased by Michael Ferrante of Tewkesbury, Massachusetts, and it then proceeded through a short succession of owners before being sold in March 2015 to the consignor. As the Bill of Sale notes, the transaction included a full belt service and a new clutch, as well as the promise of factory certification. In November 2015, a Ferrari Classiche Red Book was issued, declaring that 45929 remains a matching-numbers example in every major mechanical respect, retaining its proper chassis, engine, gearbox, differential, suspension, brakes, wheels, and bodywork, as well as being finished in its original color combination. Currently displaying 20,458 miles, this outstanding 512 BBi is accompanied by original manuals and a tool kit, and is documented with the Red Book, service invoices, and a documented provenance by marque historian Marcel Massini.
