Few Ferrari models officially bear the names of carrozziere. With the Ferrari 612, the Pininfarina-styled coachwork honors Sergio Scaglietti, the coachbuilder more frequently identified with iconic Ferrari competition cars. The uniquely designated 612 Scaglietti showcased the combined talents of Pininfarina stalwart designers Ken Okuyama and Frank Stephenson and clearly reflected the Pebble Beach-winning design elements of the Scaglietti-designed and built Rossellini and Bergman 375 MM.

In recognition of the importance of the North American market, the 612 Scaglietti was first shown to the public at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in 2004. With flowing lines and a subtle design, this was a true grand tourer, capable of crossing continents at high speed while also keeping its driver and passengers in great comfort throughout the journey. It was well received by the press and by the public alike.

Although easily capable of carrying four adults plus their luggage, the 612 Scaglietti also benefitted from plenty of performance in keeping with its fabled heritage. With 533 brake horsepower (540 PS) at 7,250 rpm, it could sprint to 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds and would go on to a top speed of 196 mph. This performance was partially thanks to an aluminum space-frame chassis with alloy bodywork, which increased torsional stiffness by an incredible 60 percent—making its handling just as exciting as its top speed and acceleration.

Buyers of the 612 Scaglietti had their choice between two transmissions: a newly introduced six-speed F1 paddle-shift transmission or a traditional gated six-speed manual transmission. Astute driving enthusiasts and collectors, opting for a more tactile experience with their new Ferrari, selected the latter. By the time production concluded in 2011, 3,025 Ferrari 612 Scagliettis had been built, yet only 199 of these were fitted with a manual transmission, ensuring future collectability for 612s so equipped. A very small number were available to US buyers.

This 2005 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti is one such example. Equipped with the highly desirable six-speed manual, it left Maranello finished in Blu Tour de France. Nicely optioned from the factory, it left further equipped with Scuderia Ferrari fender shields, brake calipers finished in Rosso Corsa, 19-inch two-piece wheels, Daytona-style seats trimmed in Cuoio Natural Leather, and blue carpet—this in addition to the upper dash, steering wheel, and rear parcel shelf all trimmed in Blu Scuro.

Today, the Ferrari is offered with 21,137 miles from new at time of cataloguing, and it is accompanied by tool kit and select manuals with pouch.

Post-2000 Ferraris fitted with a manual transmission have become increasingly desirable. These cars offer modern performance along with an unparalleled sense of driving involvement. Notably, the 612 Scaglietti marked the final four-seater model Ferrari offered with a manual transmission, making it seemingly the perfect vehicle for tifosi to enjoy the finer points of V-12 Ferrari ownership and grand touring.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/auctions/mo24/.
