Top speed listed here is a very optimistic factory claim, I don't think it's really capable of it.
Top speed measured by R&T is 284kph. THe link -
In this test they achieved better acceleration figures than listed here.
0-60mph - 5,1 sec
0-100mph - 12,2 sec
1/4 mile - 13,5@100,5
Curb weight is also wrong, it is 3470 lbs (1574 kg), -

This was probably the fastest car in the world in the 1970s, amazing flat 12 engine.

One of the best supercars ever made. 512 and Miura are two wonderful direct rivals, I love both.

Even though it's called a "boxer" (as in Berlinetta Boxer), it isn't a true boxer.

It's a 180 degree V-12.


The top is a boxer, the bottom is a 180 degree V

My bad... this car obviously has Boxer 12 engine, not V12!

Oh yeah, nice one! This is my favorite Ferrari, and it's quite fast even today! Excellent competitor to the Countach, which I also love!

But what a pity that Ferrari hasn't made any nice middle-engined 12-cylinder since Testarossa, and it's one of the reason why I'm not a Ferrari fun now. Ah, remember old good 60-90-ties, when Lambo and Ferrari were competing nicely with their brilliant cars (nowadays Lambos are still brilliant!)...
