The Ferrari 612 Scaglietti is a classic 'Grand Tourer' in the greatest Ferrari tradition. In design terms, its fluent lines pay homage to the greatest Ferraris of the Fifties and at the same time accommodate four people. First shown in 2004, it was built to the most modern specification utilizing the latest technology to achieve spectacular all round results. The V12-engine of 5.7 litres develops an astounding 540 bhp in an absolutely musical testament to the greatness of the V12-layout and all that power is kept in harness by an advanced all-aluminium space frame, only the second Ferrari to feature such a structure. The very high torsional stiffness gave suspension developers an excellent opportunity to fine tune the advanced suspension, and the 612 was praised for its handling.

The power was distributed through either a six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed paddle operated gearbox. Most buyers opted for the paddle shift which offered brilliant control and driveability with the option of a fully automatic mode. Seriously fast progress is very easily achieved and the top speed of 196 mph at the end of the scale is proper sports car territory and this masterpiece of design does not sacrifice comfort either, making it not only a true grand tourer but in reality, an everyday supercar. Around 3,000 cars were built between 2004 and 2011 and their agility and road manners have made them sought after driver's cars.

This superb 2006, right-hand drive, 612 Scaglietti F1A is a UK delivered car and is fitted with the six-speed, semi-automatic paddle shift gearbox. It's finished in Grigio Titanio Metallizatto and the interior is in Bordeaux leather with Nero stitching on the Daytona seats and Nero carpets. The car was originally specified with Heated Front Seats, Bose surround sound, Rear parking sensors, Red callipers, and a factory Battery charger including pre-wiring. It has covered just 21,100 miles and has recently been serviced by a Ferrari main agent. 

This car is regularly detailed and maintained by a professional  valeter and it shows. Unmarked, excellent and immaculate and, as they say in Italy, “Veramente Bella Maccina”.
