A quick look at the Ferrari 612: Is it for you?

The Ferrari 612, or the Scaglietti, is a grand tourer that went into production between 2004 and 2010. As a large two-door fastback coupe, the 612 was developed as a replacement for its smaller brother, the 456 M. While definitely able to stand on its own, the Ferrari 612 took heavy inspiration from the custom Ferrari 375MM that was commissioned in 1954 by Roberto Rossellini for Ingrid Bergman, his wife. Designing the 612 was spearheaded by Frank Stephenson for Pininfarina. It is also known as the Scaglietti because it was initially made in Ferrari’s Carrozzeria Scaglietti plant in Modena, Italy. There were several versions of the 612 made, including one to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Cornes & Co. and their effort at importing Ferraris to Japan, a one-off for Peter S. Kalikow, a model to mark the 60th anniversary of Ferrari, and a police car version driven from Belfast to London.

Pros

Like many others before it, the Ferrari 612 has a great presence. But unlike the others, the 612 is quite easy-going, allowing anyone to simply step inside and drive off without trouble. Ferraris can be intimidating and that has easily narrowed down the number of people driving one, giving anyone with guts a level of exclusivity that is fitting for them. The 612 somehow does away with this but make no mistake about it, the 612 is far from being a pushover that anyone could use. At the very least, it’s a more welcoming beast but still every bit of a Ferrari nonetheless.

On the road, the 612 provides ample support and control while remaining soft and pliable (even soothing to a certain extent). Shifting gears is smooth while steering is light, making the 612 a graceful Ferrari though it is the biggest vehicle in the company’s lineup. And given its size, the 612 is also a quick machine for it is fitted with a V12 engine capable of 540bhp, going from 0 to 60mph within four seconds.

Inside, the 612 has a spacious cabin, roomy enough to fit four passengers comfortably, even the leggier ones regardless of where they want to sit. The dashboard is simple yet very functional, separated in the middle by a prominent band of alloy working a beautiful finish that highlights tasteful design. Both analog and digital displays are used, with a small monitor for a trip computer. Various functions are also easily controlled through the small buttons behind the steering wheel.

The 612 may not be a hardcore example of a Ferrari sports car but its dynamic refinement puts it in a class of its own, effectively pitting it against the likes of a Mercedes CL 65 or a Bentley Continental GT.

Cons

If fuel economy is a big concern for you, time to look away. With the Ferrari 612, you’re only looking at 13.6mpg. If you still want to end up with a 612, this means either not using your vehicle as much or preparing to deal with massive fuel costs. Then again, a Ferrari is made for wide open roads. You can always take it to city streets but you’ll soon see the folly in your ways.

Ferrari 612

                Ferrari 612 Scaglietti is another addition to the fine line of cars produced and manufactured by the Ferrari S.p.A – an Italian automobile manufacturer who creates multinational sports cars. The 612 is produced in the years 2004 until 2011, and it is classed as a grand tourer or a high performance luxury car for long distance driving.

                The 612 Scaglietti’s design is headed by Frank Stephenson, an American automobile designer who worked for Ferrari, McLaren, Fiat, and Alfa Romeo. The design was done by the Italian car design firm Pininfarina S.p.A. and created as a two door 2+2 coupé with a front engine, rear wheel drive or FMR layout.

                The creation of this grand tourer happened as a successor of the Ferrari 456 M, which was also a grand tourer that was produced in 1992 until 2003. Several versions of the car were released over the years. One of these is the Ferrari GG50 in 2006, which was to commemorate the Giorgetto Giugiaro designing automobiles’ 50th anniversary. Other versions include the 612 Kappa, which was built for the President of H.J. Kalikow & Company, LLC, Peter S. Kalikow, and 612 Sessanta, which was released in 2007 with 60 units and produced to commemorate the Ferrari’s 60th anniversary. There is also a police car version of the Ferrari 612 which was used in the United Kingdom in May 2007, and this follows a police colour scheme.
