Films: Ferrari 512 BBi Is A Piece of Art

Ferrari 512 BBi Is A Piece of Art

When Holger Schubert created his studio-garage space, he did what any self-respecting, Ferrari-loving, minimalist architect would do: he took his work-of-art 512 BBi and built everything around it. As any showcased work of art deserves to be, Holger’s car is in the spotlight and on the pedestal that is the studio garage, which was designed and built for the specific purpose of working and living alongside the Ferrari. Holger shares the details of his car and of his enviable space, which includes a 16-foot driveway bridge, a ramp to roll the car outside to start, and some of the best views a car can take in of the Pacific Ocean.

I propose the dominant reason for the back tilting ramp may also be so that the car is not started in the enclosed living space, thus the smell of vehicle exhaust is avoided.

Is it weird that this film made my eyes well up with tears? …. When I was around 12, my dad came up the driveway one night with a new 512 he had ordered in Modena. He claims is was the first one in brown — a very dark, metallic saddle-leather color that was just beautiful. And the sound of the acceleration (in the film at 1:47) just floored me. Thank you Petrolicious. Keep producing great stuff.

The BB 512 is my favorite Ferrari of all time. I never thought I would like a Ferrari not painted red….especially a Boxer! The 3/4 angle shots of the car are pure auto porn! If you are thinking of having a garage/living space like this check with your local city agencies first. There are many strict rules where building or converting your place similar to this set up is illegal. I tried to do this when I owned a home 20 years ago and the city I live in rejected all my applications for building permits. They cited fire hazards.… Read more »

Absolutely beautiful, everything from the car, the color, the studio, the ramp, everything! However, I’m with Matthew on this, I’d rather have the carbed version since I think it looks even better and there’s just something special about the sound of a carbed engine.

That is the kind of studio that I would love to work in. I love the Ferrari in that colour – it’s tasteful and not too showy. Rolling out = no fumes in the studio – nice. I wonder how it rolls back in? I’ve seen an identical videoed location but with a Maserati Grand Tourismo. I wonder if this is the same architect and he has replaced the Mazza or a different architect with the same style of studio build? Great video, thanks.

Indeed. Maserati used Holger’s space for the shoot. In 2009 Maserati partnered with Architectural Digest in search of the perfect dream garage. His garage won the contest.

I’ve wanted to do this in a much more humble space, but I wonder, does the car smell up the place? When I pull up my car is hot and smells like oil and old car. I’d love to do it in my office, but I can’t stink out the clients and co-workers.

Another incredible video! I would absolutely love to incorporate a garage into a living space for some Datsuns some day. Thank you for sharing!

Thank god for Tuesdays!

Another great Petrolicious video. Love the Boxer (especially in that colour) which is one of the most underrated Ferraris of all. Unlike Holger I would prefer the earlier Carb version as I find the extra details of the BBi a little fussy. Also the carb car has proper imperial measured wheels and tyres plus it is a little more powerful too.
Curious I saw a picture of a Ferrari 250 California LWB in the same place on Instagram recently any chance there will be Petrolicious video of that masterpiece too?

The Ferrari 250 California was at Holger’s garage for a special project, but alas not for one of our videos. We hope to get our hands (or lenses) on one in the future though.

It’s my favorite part about Tuesday, coming to Petrolicious and seeing another fantastic video. I love this space!

“A ramp to roll the car outside to start.” So simple yet so effective. Although I’m not sure if I’d get any work done in an office like that.
Thanks for this website you guys. Visiting here has become part of my daily routine.
