Picture of the week - Ferrari 512 BB Brochure show Engine Bay

This is one page of the 1980 (approx) Ferrari 512 BB sales brochure. It shows the engine of the Berlinetta Boxer from the top. What an impressive engine! It's basically half the car and so nicely presented.
What I find though even more interesting is that Ferrari presents the red car on a yellowish ground while the brochures border and background is designed in a bright orange color. Horrible, I find. The brochure itself has a bulky oversize format is probably worth quite a bit of money today. But let's not talk about the display, but rather about this amazing engine with the large number of carburetors and a 5 liter displacement.

Nice. I have the same brochure, and the one for the contemporary 400i - same layout, but more decent colors...
