Ferrari 512 BB LMs at Monterey

Illustration for article titled Ferrari 512 BB LMs at Monterey

While Porsche 935s are supremely awesome and the DeKon Monzas force us into shit-eating-grin mode, we also dig the few oddball machines that wind up in the IMSA ranks at Monterey. For example, we present to you the Ferrari 512 BB LM. While it wasn't a particularly successful race car, it's pretty close to as sexy as it gets. The above model was campaigned by Charles Wegener of West Chicago, Michigan. It placed sixteenth under the crushing weight of a 935-and-Monza sea. The #100 BB of Kurt Schultz finished 26th. Still, we love these Ferraris just for being there. We could stare through that rear Lexan for hours. And we would have, were there not a race going on. [HowStuffWorks]

I love the BBLM. There are always a couple that run at Mont-Tremblant during the Ferrari Festival. They simply sound glorious. The 935s may have won races, but the BBLM provokes an emotional reaction the Porsches doesn't even come close to emulating for me.
