Ferrari's surprise in Geneva is the 612 Scaglietti successor


Before Christmas, Luca Cordero di Montezemolo announced that Ferrari would be headed to the 2011 Geneva Motor Show with something "different" . Our early assumptions lead us to believe that he was talking about the next 612, but now we can confirm that this new model is in fact the successor for the current 612 Scaglietti . Bummer, we were kind of hoping to get a little something extra at Geneva.

Codenamed F151, the next 612 Scaglietti will combine front design elements from the 458 Italia with a rear end similar to the 599 Fiorano . The powertrain will be borrowed from the 599 HY-KERS that was revealed in Geneva this year. This hybrid system combines a V12 550 HP engine with an electric motor of 100 HP. This new system will help reduce fuel consumptions by 35% and will also help the new 612 Scaglietti to not exceed CO2 emissions of more than 280 grams of per kilometer.

Apparently, Ferrari took all of the reactions they received back in 2004 when they first unveiled the 612 and used them to make the decisions that would mold and shape the successor. The final product of these decisions will be waiting for all of us when the show doors open in March 2011.

I loved this car since it was based from the very iconic the 458 Italia. BTW, this car has released a 2011 version just this week! I love it!

I think its too early to speculate about the successor. I think let’s wait for the latest news and updates before we could comment further.

Scaglietti successor adapt the AWD systems typically to power up the rear wheels. I’m sure they will be having a different version of R&D.

was never much a fan of the 612- especially with the pathetic 5 spoke wheels it came with that did it no favors.

I’m not sure I’d pick a shooting brake or 2+2 hatchback Ferrari, but since I’m probably never going to own any kind of Ferrari, and since I want pretty much everyone else to build shooting brakes,

You will definitely spot the bulge on the hood, but what it exactly holds is unknown. The rumours suggest this model is due for 2012 and is in the early phase of testing.

The test mule was again spotted, but still nothing is really known about this particular model driving around near Modena.

Just a decade ago, nobody could have used ’alternative engineering’ and Ferrari in same sentence! How the Far East market has transformed global automotive thinking within a decade! So, the world’s first Ferrari hybrid is being muted or ’muled’? Change is gonna come!

that was initial introduced in 2004, is a oldest equine in Ferrari’s stable, so it’s the healthy step for a association to replace a aging representation.

Speculation which a car in subject would be the inheritor for a 612 Scaglietti are loyal, according to AutoGespot. Much is approaching from the brand new model, both performance-wise as well as optically.

well Under its bonnet was a 65° V12 engine with a displacement of 5748 cc and offering 540 hp at 7250 rpm. The lines of the car were penned by Pininfarina to epitomize dynamism and elegance in a two-door GT car.

When it was unveiled at the 2004 Detroit show, the 612 was seen as a great leap for Ferrari, offering an all-aluminum space frame chassis and bodywork construction, used for the very first time on a Ferrari 12-cylinder.

Remember the 612 is Ferrari’s only four seater and these days has much stiffer competition from 4 door versions of super cars from Porsche, Bentley, Aston Martin. I would expect the 612 replacement to be more spacious than the current so with a longer wheelbase and more room behind the driver.

It’s either a 599 convertible that Ferrari has slightly hinted they might be making. We are still waiting for the 458 Spyder as well. If you look at the back of the car, its build and a lot of extra black camouflage.
