A special version of the BBC Model B was produced for export to the USA, and to Germany. These models had a redesigned mainboard, internal shielding to reduce electromagnetic interference, and all options (Econet, 8271 disk interface, speech) fitted as standard.

The US model had modifications to its display circuitry, to suit the 60Hz refresh rate used by NTSC televisions. The German model had a translated version of MOS.

Some US Model Bs were left unsold, and were converted back to a UK specification and sold at a reduced price. These are functionlaly equivalent to a UK Model B, but the numbering of ICs and selection jumpers does not correspond to those listed in service documentation.
