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.

NO.

The 456 GT has been around for a long time...and even in wagon form.

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!!

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.

456m

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 last week, i thought i was a mistubishi fto at first

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
