Ferrari 365 GT4 2+2 with something unexpected under the bonnet

Not something you see every day 🙂

From the ad copy:

With less than 60,000 kilometres from new this car has recently undergone a complete restoration including:
A refit with the phenomenal BMW M88 286HP straight six engine matched to the Getrag 5-speed gearbox.
(The original V12 power-house is not available)
Custom-made Bilstein suspension all-round.
Complete front-to-back, top to bottom rewire.
Soundproofing inside and out.
And much, much more…

See the listing here (South African car listed on eBay Australia with two days remaining)

  1. Very cool…. A friend of mine has 2 of those, and a 400… All with their original V12 powerhouse….. Have to do a photoshoot some day.

  2. Under what definition of “complete restoration” does an incorrect engine swap qualify?? A ferrari with a BMW engine is not a ferrari.

  3. Normally I would say “Sacrilege!” but the pedigree of the BMW engine is nearly that of the classic Ferrari V12… It’s an odd combo to consider.

    At least it’s not a Chevy V8.

  4. It’s the european equivalent of putting a corvette engine in there.

  5. 1) Is the Ferrari V12 in a BMW body ?

    2) And why not a four cylinder diesel ?
