The 612 Scaglietti

 

Ferrari has announced the official name for its all-new 2+2 model – the 612 Scaglietti, which goes on sale in the UK next summer. Named after famous Ferrari coachbuilder Sergio Scaglietti, the 4.9-metre long, all-aluminium 612 will blend the perfect combination of performance and comfort in the best traditions of a true Ferrari berlinetta designed to accommodate four people in high-speed luxury and safety.

  • All new, 4.9-metre long, 2+2 model boasts 196 mph top speed
  • First V12 Ferrari with all-aluminium chassis & body construction
  • Lighter… but longer, wider and taller than the 456M
  • V12 engine produces 540 bhp and 434 lb ft of torque
  • Long wheelbase ensures 2+2 is a genuine four-seater
  • Luggage capacity boosted by 25% - to 240 litres
  • Named after famous Ferrari coachbuilder Sergio Scaglietti
For the first time, Ferrari will manufacture a 12-cylinder model with both the space-frame chassis and body panels in aluminium, built entirely in-house at Modena, Northern Italy, in the dedicated Scaglietti light-alloy technologies facility. The benefits of this construction method include a 60% increase in structural rigidity and significant weight savings of 60 kg compared to the current 456M 2+2 – despite the new car’s larger dimensions.
