Ferrari 612 Scaglietti

Email   small font medium font large font


The Ferrari 612 Scaglietti, named for the Modenese designer who mastered the automotive aluminum form, is designed to be the world's finest four seat sport coupe. In the long-standing tradition of Gran Turismo Ferraris, the goal is accomplished through high tech, avant-garde design. Styling is by Pininfarina, which advances the sports coupe paradigm while paying homage to the famed Ferrari 375MM Coupe commissioned in 1954 for Ingrid Bergman by Roberto Rossellini.

Space and efficiency complementing high performance are hallmarks of the new Ferrari four seater, which attains the highest levels of thrust and balance without sacrificing comfort and luxury. The 612 Scaglietti is the pinnacle of practical Italian automotive style with light but rigid all-alloy construction, a superb 540bhp (DIN) V12 engine displacing just under six liters, the new F1A paddle shift transmission, the first application of integrated stability and traction control in a Ferrari, continuously variable suspension damping, and a host of luxury appointments expected by the discerning drivers who count themselves amongst the Ferraristi. Grand luxury and exceptional functionality combine with supreme driving pleasure in the 612 Scaglietti, the Ferrari for more than two.

Conceptually, the 612 Scaglietti was to be the greatest four seat high performance coupe, relying on light weight and structural rigidity for its performance and comfort while providing adequate power to provide enjoyment in all driving situations. Further, the Scaglietti was conceived as a tribute to Italian design and elegance, showcasing today's technology with echoes of classic styling. The clean-sheet design 612 Scaglietti is inspired and innovative. It does nothing short of marrying a cabin capable of accommodating four occupants in comfort with the body of a thrillingly nimble, sporty, front-engine rear-wheel drive berlinetta, offering unprecedented interior comfort and appointments: a concept realized in full.

The 612 is a car with all of the fiery temperament and driving pleasure of a thoroughbred Ferrari, combining thrilling performance, agility and premium construction while going a step further by offering rear passengers two comfortable, roomy seats. The aluminum technology used in the space frame chassis and body, such a success in the 360 Modena, results in a massive 60% increase in overall body structure efficiency, measured by the weight-to-rigidity ratio. The light yet incredibly rigid aluminum construction offers other significant benefits in terms of performance - acceleration, braking efficiency, handling, dynamics, and general drivability are all class leading; comfort - the interior is wonderfully quiet.
