The Ferrari 612 Scaglietti is a classic grand tourer in the greatest Ferrari tradition. In design terms, its fluent lines pay homage to the greatest Ferraris of the Fifties and at the same time accommodate four people. First shown in 2004, it was built to the most modern specification and utilizing the latest technology to achieve spectacular all round abilities: The V12-engine of 5.7 litres develops an astounding 540 bhp in an absolutely musical testament to the greatness of the V12-layout. All that power is kept in harness by an advanced all-aluminium space frame, only the second Ferrari to feature such a structure. The very high torsional stiffness gave suspension developers the best possibilities to fine tune the advanced suspension, and the 612 was praised for it handling.
The power was distributed through either a six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed paddle shift operated gearbox. Most buyers opted for the paddle shift which offered brilliant control and driveability with the option of a fully automatic mode. Seriously fast progress is very easily achieved and the top speed of 196 mph at the end of the scale is proper sports car territory and this masterpiece of design does not sacrifice comfort either, making it not only a true grand tourer but in reality, an everyday supercar. Around 3,000 cars were built between 2004 and 2011 and their tremendous abilities have made them sought after driver's cars.
This 2005, left-hand drive example was sold from new in Sweden and was last registered in Denmark. It has clearly been well maintained over its 68.000 kilometers as the Nero bodywork presents itself in beautiful order and so does all the trim, wheels and glass. The 612 was renowned for its beautifully crafted leather interior, and the biscuit colour of this car complements the metallic black perfectly, making for a most discreet and distinguished high-speed tourer. This 612 was always serviced by official Ferrari dealers and is absolutely on the button: Ready to use and enjoy as it stands.
