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.
