To honour Ferrari’s 60th anniversary in 2007, sixty special edition variants of its Pininfarina designed V-12 2+2 grand tourer, the 612, were offered to selected clients. These ‘Sessante’ are notable for their handcrafted elements and distinctive specifications, featuring two-tone paintwork, 19-inch forged aluminum alloy wheels and a three-stage electrochromic glass roof. The unique Sessanta interior layout, seat design and stitching made the cabin a truly special place to spend time. Power came from the 5,748 cc 65-degree V-12 engine producing 540 bhp and 434 lb/ft of torque, channeled to the rear wheels through the latest version of Ferrari’s F1A transmission with top of the range handling pack and carbon ceramic brakes as standard.
This Sessanta was delivered new through the factory to its first owner on July 8, 2008. With its first owner being listed as Ferrari Financial Services in the accompanying service book, being leased to an Italian gentleman. It is noteworthy for its special-order two-tone paint scheme of Avorio over Blu Scozia. The car’s interior and boot is fully trimmed in Cioccolato leather and features quilted stitching details in bianco with matching bianco instrument cluster details, a Bose infotainment and navigation system and enamel plaque on the centre console commemorating the 308 GTB of 1982 and marking this as Sessanta #36 of 60.
The car appears to have remained in Italy until 2013, when it was purchased by the current owner. Serviced at Kroymans, the official Ferrari dealership in the Netherlands, in 2014, it was exported to the U.K. Subsequently, the car has been sparingly enjoyed but regularly serviced by main Ferrari dealerships, including Maranello Egham in July 2016 and August 2017, and then H.R. Owen in London in September of 2019.
It presents in fantastic condition throughout is offered with its original owner’s manuals, including its original service book, as well as various service invoices, confirming that it has travelled less than 21,000 km from new. Importantly, the car comes a 60th anniversary commemorative enamel plaque box set, left hand drive headlight pods which can be utilized if the car is brought back to a LHD market, as well as its original car cover and battery conditioner.
This is a unique but eminently usable Ferrari, ready for its next owner to enjoy. To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/0420.
