In 1971’s Turin Motor Show, Ferrari gave its answer to all its critics in the best way it could. The Berlinetta Boxer was an entirely new model and the first road-going Ferrari not to feature a V-configuration engine reflecting Ferrari’s motor racing heritage. Instead, it had a 12cylinder 4,4-litre four-cam “boxer” engine. It was styled by Pininfarina, one of Maranello’s most important contributors during the following years. This specific car was acquired by the Museum through auction in Great Britain.
