250px The Ferrari 612 Scaglietti is a Gran Turismo car produced by Ferrari since 2004. It is a large two door coupe with a 2+2 seating arrangement. The 612 Scaglietti was designed to replace the smaller Ferrari 456M.
The 612 Scaglietti shares its naturally aspirated 5.7 L (5748 cc) V12 engine with the 575M Maranello. The Tipo F133E engine produces 540 CV (533 hp/397 kW) at 7250 rpm and 588 N·m (434 ft·lbf) at 5250 rpm with a compression ratio of 11.2:1. The car is capable of 199 mph (315 km/h) and has a 0-60 mph time of 4.2 seconds. It comes with two six speed transmission options: a conventional manual or the F1A paddle shift system, a much refined version of the F1 system in Ferrari 360 Modena.
The 612 is Ferrari's second all-aluminium vehicle, the first being the 360 Modena. Its space frame (developed with Alcoa) is made from extrusions and castings of the material, and the aluminium body is welded on. The chassis of the 612 will form the basis of the new 599 GTB, the replacement for the current V12 575M sports car.
It is produced at Ferrari's Carrozzeria Scaglietti plant, the former home of the car's namesake coachbuilder in Modena, Italy. The design, especially the large side scallops, pays homage to a unique early 1960s Ferrari car built to film director Roberto Rossellini's personal taste for actress Ingrid Bergman.
