The Ferrari 612 Scaglietti (Italian pronunciation: [skaʎˈʎetti] skall-YET-e or sky-YET-e) is a 2+2 coupé grand tourer produced by Ferrari between 2004 and 2010. The 612 Scaglietti was designed to replace the smaller 456 M; its larger size makes it a true 4 seater with adequate space in the rear seats for adults.

The design, especially the large side scallops and the headlights, pays homage to the custom 1954 Ferrari 375 MM that director Roberto Rossellini had commissioned for his wife, Ingrid Bergman.

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 forms the basis of the 599 GTB.


The 612 Scaglietti shares its engine with the Ferrari 575 Superamerica. The engine has compression ratio of 11:1. It has a top speed of 320 km/h (198.8 mph) and has a 0–100 km/h acceleration time of 4.2 seconds.

Engine type Power, torque @ rpm
5,748 cc (350.8 cu in) V12 (Tipo F133F) 540 PS (397.2 kW; 532.6 hp) @7250, 589 N·m (434 lb·ft) @5250


The 612 comes with 6-speed manual or the 6-speed F1A semi-automatic paddle shift system, a much refined version of the F1 system in the 360.


The 612 was produced at Ferrari's Carrozzeria Scaglietti plant, the former home of the car's namesake coachbuilder in Modena, Italy. It was then taken down the road to the Maranello factory and the V12 engine was put in along with the interior.

The Ferrari 612 was replaced by the Ferrari FF in 2011.


In 2008, Ferrari recalled several hundred 2005-2007 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti with automated manual gearboxes because the clutch sensor in the transmission could malfunction due to heat from the vehicle under normal operating conditions. This may render the vehicle inoperable and possibly result in a crash.[1]

612 OTO F1- Mid 2008 to 2010 demonstrated a revised second generation 612 similar to revisions Ferrari typically makes during their product life cycles ( i.e. Testarossa to 512TR, 550 to 575, 456GT to 456M etc.). OTO cars signified Ferrari's One to One program where a purchaser could sit down at Ferrari's New York showroom or at the Factory in Italy and special order his car to his exact specifications with personal assistance via Ferrari's Atelier program. OTO cars featured Ferrari's revised 599 dual plate clutch Superfast transmission (2 years before the 599 received it), glass electrochromic roof, steering wheel Mannetino, 20" Challenge wheels and sporty exhaust, Carbon Ceramic brakes etc. The HGT2 package option gave the 612 a sport and suspension package similar to the HGTE package later offered on 599's. OTO cars were therefore, not ordered for inventory and each was custom ordered by customers and generally feature special interiors, options and details coupled with Ferrari's revised performance attributes that make these limited production cars very special. It's said that less than 50 are circulating within the U.S. market.
