GALLERY: Ferrari 512BB

Carrera Ferrari 512BB LM 1979 NART

The ManicSlot Mini Review


  • Carrera are still the only slot car manufacture to make the Ferrari 512BB
  • Strong 'from the box' performance
  • Impressively detailed slot car
  • Front and rear lights
  • 2 adjustable magnets
  • Reverse direction switch


    • Average non magnetic performance


    The Carrera 512BB was popular when released but has not achieved the fame of Fly classics or the likes of Scalextric GT40s. This means you can still manage to pick up one of these beauties for a modest price although mint condition 512BBs are getting harder to find. The car is fun to drive although it does feel a little heavy.

    The 512BB has awesome magnetic track performance (as tested on my Carrera track) - this car features in the ManicSlot's top 10 magnetic lap times alongside the likes of and Sideways, no small achievement!

    Love the Carrera 512BBs. I got one on sale for my son (age six) and it's been a superb car, easy to drive out of the box, predictable, and looks great. For the price these cars are a steal.
