Ferrari 365 BB
Ferrari GT4 365 Berlinetta Boxer Tyres
- The first Ferrari 365 BB came fitted with 215/70-15 Tyres front and rear.
- The 215/70 WR 15 PIRELLI CINTURATO CN12 and 215/70 WR 15 Michelin XWX are both fantastic tyres in this size.
- Soon Ferrari fitted 225/70-15 Tyres to the rear.
- If you need the larger rear tyre on your Berlinetta Boxer, we would recommend fitting 215/70VR15 Michelin XWX on the front, with the 225/70 WR 15 Michelin XWX on the rear.
- For inner tubing Ferrari 365 BB tyres we would suggest the Michelin 15/17H to be the best fit.
History of the Ferrari 365 Berlinetta Boxer
The 365 GT/4 BB debuted at the 1971 Turin Motor Show. It was designed to compete with the Lamborghini Miura and the newly built Lamborghini Countach, and it was first sold in 1973 at the Paris Motor Show. The Pininfarina-designed body was inspired by the P6 show vehicle, which featured pop-up headlights. The 365 GT4 BB shared the same number designation as the Daytona, however, the Boxer was vastly different. It was mid-engined, with the engine being placed longitudinally rather than transversely. The engine generated 375 horsepower.
The V12 engine was installed atop the five-speed manual gearbox. The use of timing belts instead of chains was a significant distinction in this engine. The 180° V12, although referred to as a Boxer, the BB actually fitted a flat engine. There were 387 produced in total, with 88 models produced in a right-hand drive configuration, with only 58 for the UK market, making it the rarest of all Berlinetta Boxers.
