Description

2010 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti 'One to One' Coupé
Coachwork by Pininfarina/Scaglietti
Registration no. FJ60 CZY
Chassis no. ZFFJY54C000172736

In naming its new four-seater Gran Turismo after Carrozzeria Scaglietti, Ferrari acknowledged the immense contribution made by its Maranello neighbour and close collaborator over the preceding 50 years. The 612's design brief called for a car capable of accommodating four adults in comfort - rather than being merely a '2+2' - without sacrificing any of the superlative driving dynamics excepted by dedicated Ferraristi. Introduced in 2004, the result was the biggest Ferrari road car ever, yet one that weighed less than the smaller 456M. The 'secret' lay in the 612's lightweight aluminium chassis: a mixture of extrusions, castings and panels, which replaced the traditional sheet-steel monocoque.

In styling the 612, Pininfarina paid homage to one of its most famous creations – the fabulous 375MM commissioned by renowned Italian filmmaker Roberto Rossellini for his wife, Ingrid Bergman, and first seen at the Paris Salon in 1954 – the long nose and scalloped sides of which find echoes in the Scaglietti. No content with merely shedding weight as a means of boosting performance, the 612 featured an improved version of the 575M Maranello's 5,748cc 65-degree V12 engine producing 540bhp and 434lb/ft of torque. The F1A transmission too had undergone significant improvement, incorporating extra synchronisation cones for swifter changes, while manual/automatic modes and 1st and reverse gears could now be selected using a gate on the centre console, rather than only by means of the steering-wheel paddles. Lighter, more powerful and endowed with superior suspension and brakes, the 612 Scaglietti lapped Ferrari's Fiorano test track some six seconds quicker than the 456M. Its top speed? 196mph.

Sold new by Graypaul Motors, Nottingham to Mr J Studholme of Lincolnshire, the car offered here was ordered via Ferrari's 'One to One' personalisation programme that had been introduced on the 612 at the 2008 Geneva Salon. Thereafter the 612 was only available through this special order process, which was later extended to the entire Ferrari range. This car's unique specification includes the following highlights:

HGT2 Handling Package; Electronically adjustable glass roof; Parking camera; Yellow rev counter; Red seatbelts; Chrome grille frame; Chrome satin mirrors; Scuderia shields; NavTrak anti-theft device; Grigio Ferro external colour; Rosso trim and matching steering wheel; Carbon interior trim; Alcantara boot trim

Sold to the current owner in September 2015 at 8,890 miles, this unique 612 Scaglietti comes with a V5C document, current MoT and its service booklet, the latter stamped by recognised Ferrari specialists on five occasions, the most recent dated June 2018 (at 10,829 miles).
