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.
To miss with perfection should be a sin. So the moment Imola Racing even began to mess with the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti, the heavens should open and swallow the German tuner whole.
At least it seems Imola was smart enough to not touch the engine. Instead this is likely just body enhancements. We don’t have much info on the kit. We do know its being considered a widebody because of the enlarged fenders and larger tires. There are also new front and rear spoilers as well as a two-tone paint job the is reminiscent of the first generation Corvette.
Carrozeria Touring made its come back few weeks ago at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este with the unveiling of two designed cars based on Maserati models. First was the Maserati A8 GCS Berlinetta, a model that was inspired by the 60’s berlinettas, while the second one, Maserati Quattroporte Bellagio Fastback, will go into limited production.
The next company that will cooperate with Carrozeria Touring will be Ferrari. They want a model that will be able to satisfy customers looking for exotic body. The model they will work on will be the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti.
The final result will be unveiled at the Paris Auto Show.
The over 13,000-kilometre Ferrari Magic India Discovery Drive made a triumphant return to Mumbai this evening, exactly as per the drive programme. The cars were received at the Gateway of India, close to the starting point of the drive, in a grand ceremonial flag-in event.
The Magic India Discovery Drive was another milestone test for the mettle of Maranello’s flagship GT model. More than 50 journalists took turns behind the wheels of the two cars along the 13 often extremely difficult stages spread across India, taking in 57 cities in the over 70-day tour. This kind of event is not new to Ferrari, however, as the "China, Ferrari 15,000 Red Miles" tour of the entire China in 2005 and the "Panamerican 20,000" tour from Brazil to the USA in 2006 both proved exceptionally successful too. To celebrate this latest achievement of the two Prancing Horse cars, a large group of Ferrari enthusiasts gathered today at the Gateway of India.
Also present was a large number of journalists to whom President Luca di Montezemolo sent a special video message. "I want to thank all the people who made possible this event around some of the most beautiful areas of the world. The Magic India Discovery team was everywhere warmly welcomed by the Indian people that showed a great passion for Ferrari.", said Mr. Montezemolo. He also stressed that "the two 612 Scagliettis felt right at home on the Indian roads, demonstrating that Ferrari Grand Tourers not only guarantee top class performance but also absolute safety and comfort even in the most extreme conditions."
Third time and it’s India’s turn. Two Ferrari Scagliettis are travelling across India, an odyssey aimed at creating awareness of Ferrari and to explore the marvels the country has in offer.
The two stallions started their trip from Mumbai on the 25th of last month and will return to the same city on May 8th after munching more than 11,000 kilometres through the 12-stage 72-day voyage. Ferrari is offering 50 journalists from across the globe to take turns behind the wheel of the V12-powered 612 Scaglietti.
Ferrari unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show the 612 Scaglietti One to One - a new personalization program that will allow every client to fully personalise this flagship model, courtesy of a wide array of new content as well as the options available through the Carrozzeria Scaglietti Programme. In fact, a special dedicated "atelier" area has been set up at the factory in which clients can put together their own bespoke 612 Scaglietti accessory by accessory, detail by detail.
The V12 engine has a dry sump lubrication system featuring both delivery and scavenge pumps, twin overhead cams, 48 valves, maximum power of 540 hp at 7250 rpm, maximum torque of 60 kgm at 5250 rpm. The car has a maximum speed of 198 mph, and 0 to 60 mph acceleration of 4.0 secs.
The 612 Scaglietti also sports the aptly named SuperFast gearbox which delivers an exceptional gear-shifting time of 100 milliseconds and a reduced inertia clutch to enhance the engine’s responsiveness still further. The iconic Ferrari manettino, now featured on the entire range, has also been added to the steering wheel.
Ferrari is delighted to announce the start of a new Prancing Horse adventure, the Magic India Discovery Tour, which gets underway from Mumbai on February 25th and returns to the same city on May 8th having covered a route stretching more than 11,000 kilometres. The car featured in this tour is the 612 Scaglietti, Ferrari’s flagship GT model.
Two of these gorgeous Prancing Horse berlinettas will embark on the voyage which comes in the wake of the China 15,000 Red Miles tour completed in 2005 and the Panamerican 20,000 tour of 2006, both of which were hugely successful. Ferrari is offering a total of 50 journalists from across the world the unique opportunity to take turns behind the wheel of a V12-powered 612 Scaglietti in the course of the 12-stage 72-day voyage of discovery of the delights and richness of India.
The journalists will explore this fascinating country which combines modernity and tradition. India is currently enjoying an exciting period of rapid economic growth and a boom in its advanced technologies sector yet remains rooted in the traditions of its ancient culture. This is a nation in which innovative infrastructure exists side by side with areas of completely unspoilt natural beauty.
Of course, Ferrari isn’t new to this kind of marathon voyage. Its last such adventure was the Panamerican 20,000 tour during which two 599 GTB Fioranos travelled from the beaches of Brazil to the East Coast of the US, taking in tropical rain forests, arid deserts and snowy peaks as they traversed an entire continent.

Ferrari 612 Sessanta is based on the body of the 612 Scaglietti introduced during the Geneva Motor-Show 2007, and thus comes with the full enhancement package used for the latter. It is available only with F1 gearbox and provides the following features.
The Ferrari 612 Scaglietti is the perfect vehicle in the Maranello sports car stable for the gentleman driver. The Gran Turismo is already a very noble means of travel as standard equipment, however particularly optically it can still stand some flashier details. Therefore a modification of the body stood at the top of the HAMANN engineers’ to-do list. But the refiners from Laupheim didn’t neglect sound and handling either.
