    612 Scaglietti Special Edition

    Probably the Gallardo Nera inspired Ferrari.

    From the Owner's site:
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

    As part of its 60th anniversary celebrations, Ferrari will build a series of 60 truly unique cars. These will be based on the 612 Scaglietti, the Prancing Horse's range-topping Gran Turismo which combines blistering performance and superb handling with superior comfort, sumptuous handcrafted trim, state-of-the-art accessories and meticulous attention to detail

    The cars will be offered with a two-tone livery in a combination of classic Ferrari colours as used on some of the Prancing Horse's most memorable models. The interior appointments will feature sophisticated colour combinations and a stunning new-generation electrochromic glass roof, itself a major innovation. The degree of opacity of the roof, in fact, can be adjusted to suit the occupants' requirements.

    To underline the exclusivity of this series of one-offs, each example will also boast an enamelled symbol set on the central tunnel representing one of the 60 historic events chosen to celebrate the marque's anniversary, as used on the "Ferrari 60 Relay" baton.

    The result is a true collector's car aimed at Ferrari's most dedicated clients.

    Re: 612 Scaglietti Special Edition

    I got this mail also from the owners site. If this is the only car they will bring us for the 60 anniversary, it's not much special.

    I hope they will present a more "special" car.

    I think they picked the 612 because it has the worst sales

    Re: 612 Scaglietti Special Edition

    Any replacement of the 612 in sight?

    Re: 612 Scaglietti Special Edition

    this is pathetically in its lambo imitation:)

    Re: 612 Scaglietti Special Edition

    I really like the small amount of marketing language they use :

    What, are they on the witness stand?

    Re: 612 Scaglietti Special Edition

    "A true collector's car aimed at Ferrari's most dedicated clients." Ferrari must be getting desperate. This sounds more like the hype from a Barrett-Jackson auction promo.

    Re: 612 Scaglietti Special Edition

    A page from the GM school of " badge engineering " marketing . OTOH, Lambo is doing a lot of those " special version " come -ons with it's cars , too. " There's an ass for every seat " has been the mantra in the car sales biz for slow moving models forever.

    612 facelift is imminent. 4WD is rumoured, and I'm hoping for the 599's engine.

    It's kind of a Ferrari standard procedure at the end of a car's life cycle to bring out some special model.

    550 -> Barchetta
    575M -> Superamerica
    Modena -> Challenge Stradale
    F430 -> Light Pista (or whaterver the "new" CS is called)

    I'm sure the 612 will get the Enzo-engine sooner or later, at the latest when the old V12 will be used as a top engine in the Maserati Quattroporte.
    Not sure about AWD though.

    AFAIK the 612 sells rather well in the meantime.

    Re: 612 Scaglietti Special Edition

    It has the same glass mirror has the superamerica and has two color body . Why some of you keep on saying they are copying Lambo ???
    The 612 its a sucess it sells much more than the 456.
