The Ferrari 612 Scaglietti came about in 2004 ready to replace the smaller 456M. This 2+2 seater fastback coupe featured a 5.7L V12 engine that produced 532 HP and 434 lb-ft of torque. This engine was mated to a six-speed automated transmission. The 612 Scaglietti's life span was cut short in 2011 with the birth of its successor, the Ferrari FF.
Novitec Rosso is saying good bye to the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti with a tuning package for the Ferrari’s 2+2 seater model. The package includes: new wheels, engine updates, a stainless-steel sport exhaust system, a new taillight design, and upgrades for the interior.
Starting with the V12 engine, Novitec Rosso managed to increase the output to an impressive 565 HP and 609 Nm at 5,300 rpm by utilizing a newly calibrated engine management system and the NOVITEC ROSSO stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system. The result is a sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 201 mph.
For the interior the tuner is offering an ergonomically shaped sport steering wheel which comes in any color imaginable and any material, depending on the customer’s demand. To further customize the interior of the Ferrari , the tuner has provided the consumer with custom tailored seat designed to fit from the shortest to the tallest driver. They will even provide more lateral support or a lowered seat position.
The taillight system is comprised of the black NOVITEC ROSSO lamps and adds four round taillights, the reflectors, and the side markers. The car sits on three-piece NF3 alloy wheels in a combination of size 9Jx20 wheels in front and size 12.5Jx21 rims on the rear axle.
This tuning package from Novitec focuses more on the engine and the customization for comfortability then the original package for the Scaglietti back in 2006. The newer package provides 10 hp more than the original, but the original also provided sportier touches such as the pedal set, footrest, and a new high performance brake system.
Imagine all you ever dreamed of was the day when your brand new Ferrari would be delivered to your garage. You’ve counted every minute until the car of your dreams came into your possession? Now, imagine the delivery driver wrecking it just seconds before you could finally say "It’s mine!"
We’re not being sadistic, we swear! This is exactly what happened to a guy in the UK. He had the "chance" to have his brand new 612 Scaglietti delivered by a junior member of staff. Unfortunately, the junior member’s lack of experience caused the beautiful blue Ferrari to visit a lamppost face to face during the, apparently, difficult to maneuver roundabout. To make matters worse, the 612 mounted a two-foot wall!
Witness Gary Adams said: "He was driving along one minute and the next the car was in the middle of the roundabout. He looked pretty stressed out when he realized the car was wrecked and kept saying his bosses would kill him."
Talk about a bad day at work! We feel for you, buddy. We’re hoping your bosses - and the car owner, for that matter - are the forgiving type.
On the heels of showing you spy shots of what could be the next-generation Ferrari 612; we come across these photos of a 2005 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti that has had quite a dramatic facelift – and it’s the type of facelift that you pay to enjoy.
The worst part is; the owner of the car isn’t even responsible for crashing this beautiful Scaglietti. Turns out, the car was apparently stolen with the driver – and thief – taking it for a high-speed ride that caused him to crash it in the process. Figuring that he neither had a good explanation nor the proper paperwork to report the crash to local authorities in Brazil, he did what only dim-witted thieves would do – he jumped out and abandoned it in the middle of the road.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that the ‘true’ owner of this 612 Scaglietti is justifiably devastated by the loss of his beautiful ride. Rightfully so; if the same thing happened to us, we’d be inconsolable too.
Recent spyshots that surfaced have led to strong indications that a next-generation Ferrari 612 could become more than just a pipe dream.
This particular set of photos were taken somewhere in Sweden and judging by the look of the car, it doesn’t look a whole lot different from the previous model, which pretty much means that this may be some sort of performance testing designed for the new 612.
What is quite noticeable, though, was that this testing mule comes with a pretty jacked up exhaust pipes, which could also mean that the new 612 could come with a modified – or maybe even new – wheelbase.
At this time, this is about all we have on this rumoured successor to the 612 and if we find anymore updates on the car, we’ll be sure to send them your way.
Back in April the successor to Ferrari’s 612 Scaglietti was caught on camera , although those were only stills, this time we have some video of what looks like a prototype Ferrari conducting a few test laps around the Italian automaker’s home test track.
So this time you will have a chance to see the vehicle in action tanks to the short spy video. If you take a closer look at the vehicle, you will be able to notice a modified bonnet and a few other design elements borrowed from the recently released convertible California .
Aparently the one time Russian Ferrari owner had just finished handing over more than half a million euro (about $845,000) for the exotic Italian four seater only a half hour before the tragic incident occurred. As the driver explained, "I owned Ferrari for 30 minutes. Just bought it for €600,000 and was heading home, when I noticed some smoke coming out from under the hood, I promptly pulled to the sideway and ran out of the car. In just minutes my new Ferrari had completely caught on fire. I really don’t know what has happened." At least the individual had enough good sense to exit the car before he too suffered a similar fate.
The cause is still undetermined, and judging by the puddle of Ferrari that was left behind, it doesn’t look like it ever will. However, one thing is for certain, this definitely doesn’t look good for the Italian automaker.
Is it just me or is that 612 hot! The citizens of Moscow really do have a strange relationship with their super cars. A little while ago we showed you a Lamborghini crashed by its Russian owner, today it’s a Ferrari that has met its demise. The drive noticed smoke coming out from under the hood of his 612 Scaglietti , then someone caught the conflagration on camera.
To see the aftermath, check out the video after the jump.
We’ve seen this Ferrari 612 test mule earlier this month, but this time there may be more info. A new rumor is suggesting that the stacked exhaust pipes and new hood are not part of a facelift, but a full-on replacement. The 612’s replacement could even feature a 4x4 system to provide a direct rival to the all-wheel drive Lamborghinis (although the 612 seats twice as many.)
What makes us a little skeptical that this is a whole new car planned for 2011, and not just a 612 touch-up, is Ferrari’s other plans. We know Ferrari is working on a successor to the F430, plus there are rumors of a refreshed 599 GTB , 599 Spyder and California Mondial . If even half of these rumors are true, Ferrari would likely be too busy to put together a whole new car.
We’re not sure wether to call this a spy shot of a face lift for the 612 Scaglietti or if this an engine testing mule. All we do know is something is brewing over at Ferrari with its 2+2 GT car.
There have been rumors swirling around that Ferrari wants to reduce its emission by as much as forty percent. So when we see a shot with a 612 that appears to be completely stock except for the hood, we suspect it may just have some engine development. Then again, we just found out last week that Ferrari’s other GT car, the 599, will likely be getting a facelift soon , and the 612 has been on the market two years longer without a touch-up. So maybe there’s more to this picture?
