The 612 Scaglietti’s bodywork was styled in close collaboration with Pininfarina and beautifully dovetails functional and aesthetic requirements. The curve of the wheel arches, the bonnet, cabin and tail, in fact, lend it a beautifully aerodynamic thoroughbred grace.

But what gives the 612 Scaglietti a real touch of character are its scalloped sides, a styling cue borrowed from the legendary 375 MM bought by director Rossellini for actress Ingrid Bergman.

The traditional Ferrari air intake is given an original twist with the wheelarches protruding slightly further than the bonnet, while its projector headlights have transparent covers that display their inner workings. The rear section is big and solid-looking with the classic high round tail lights too.

Engine

The 612 Scaglietti is powered by a 65 degree V12 engine that displaces 5,748 cc. it punches out 540 hp at 7250 rpm, a full 98 hp more than the 5,474 cc engine mounted in the 456M.

Various modifications have been made to optimise the engine’s performance and fluid-dynamics and make it perform even more stunningly than it first did in the 575M Maranello.

The 612 Scaglietti offers new more direct air intake tracts with separate ducts peer cylinder bank from the radiator grille opening on the front bumper, new exhaust system geometries and volumes to cut backpressure, a higher compression ratio (11.2: 1), and inlet tracks and exhaust porting with improved fluid dynamic characteristics.

The 612 Scaglietti also boasts a Bosch Motronic ME7 CPU and careful work on its dynamic handling means that it responds exceptionally quickly and smoothly, making it easier to control in all kinds of conditions.

Gearbox and Transmission

One of the unique strengths of the current Ferrari range is the F1 type gearbox.

This was taken a step further in the design of the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano resulting in the astonishing F1-Superfast, which is now fitted to the 612. The new gearbox’s name encompasses the two key concepts behind its design: the fact that it is derived from the ultra-competitive world of Formula One and the faster-than-ever gear shifting times it delivers.
