2004 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti

Home  \  European Imports  \  2004 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti

The newest high-performance grand touring car from Ferrari, the 612 Scaglietti combines the performance of a Ferrari berlinetta with comfortable seating for four occupants.
Thid 4-seat coupe features an all-aluminum space frame built by Ferrari at the Scaglietti light-alloy technologies facility, resulting in a 132-pound weight reduction from the 456M it replaces. The new spaceframe also has a 60 percent increase in structural rigidity for improved handling, comfort and occupant safety.

A 540-horsepower V12 engine powers the coupe, mounted behind the front axle for a front mid-engine layout that improves weight distribution and performance dynamics. In addition, both the transmission and the differential are mounted at the rear of the car to achieve a 46 percent/54 percent front/rear weight distribution.

The 6-speed gearbox is either fully manual or with the next-generation electro-hydraulic system that operates the clutch and changes gears when the driver flicks the paddles behind the steering wheel. The electro-hydraulic system can operate in an automatic mode, but the transmission is still a mechanical unit containing a clutch.

The Pininfarina-designed body is 5.5 inches longer than the 456M and adds additional rear-seat legroom and headroom for increased passenger comfort. The trunk can accommodate five pieces of Ferrari luggage or two golf bags.

Wow. Didnt know about the wagon. The 612 looks so much like the 550/575, i like the designs. The dash needs work tho.

The Scaglietti was deff based off of the 456 and yes, it does resemble the 550 a bit. And hey, who wouldn't want a 4-seater Ferrari. It's a Ferrari!! :mrgreen:

That interior looks roomy, although I'd have to shoot for some flat cream or beige Ferrari leather. That blue shit looks like something out of an Aliens movie. importluva, i have to agree with you on this one that dash is terrible. N is that a cupholder? Haha no one would be drinking in my $300,000 vehicle. A Ferrari wagon, damn thats a new one. They kinda soiled themselves with that one, and a "Sultan" owns one? Hey is that they Arab guy who owns an Enzo and all those over supercars?

I like those Modena tail lights, that car looks sexy.. They shold have made it a V8 the front pertrudes to much and makes it looks like a big penis car.

Yeah definately like the look of the 456 and the 612, The estate (wagon to the yanks) is very cool, I could afford a 456 its the running costs that would kill me, most ferraris are in for a cam belt change every 36k miles, freind of mine who works at NATO runs a 412 as his every day car, lucky for him he gets tax free fuel, drinks like a fish, they have a special motor pool where they service the cars (becuase there income is tax free and there genraly well paid lots of flash cars, he wife gets a new S Class every 18 months, as a diplomatic perk) at a special rate, or it would be about £3k ($5kUSD) every 12k mile service.

You can pick up a mid 90's 456 for about £25k-30k ($50k USD) which is far from out rageous, and it will hold its price well if you maintain it, its the running and maintainance which you will spend £10k ($18k USD) a yr on.

I saw one of this giant Ferraris on the motorway. I have seen it in pics..and i thought it was ugly..when i saw it in reality i still think its ugly..but very eye catching. I saw one in bright red , first thought it was an Fto, its massive..like an s-class mercedes. But apparently it goes well fast..but i would rather get an M6 and beat it

I think that the 612 is pretty cool, maybe ugly but pretty cool. There is one 4 sale by me for £180,000!!!!

Having 4 seats means that you can take more people on trans-euro tours to Monte-Carlo etc. Or maybe just for the school run :screwy: :laughing:

I dont think a 612 is a "soccer-mom" car for school runs... :hi:
But hey, whatever floats your boat! :thumbs:
