The new Scaglietii is a unique partnership within Wallpaper*, the leading magazine for design, interiors, fashion and travel and Ferrari GB. Ferrari invited Wallpaper’s award-winning Creative Director Tony Chambers and Art Editors Meirion Pritchard and David McKendrick to design a stylish and sophisticated Ferrari 612 Scaglietti interpreting the unlimited possibilities available via the Carrozzeria Scaglietti Personalisation Programme.
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.
At the Villa d’Este Concours d’Elegance on Friday Pininfarina will unveil a specially coachbuilt Ferrari 612 Scaglietti commissioned by American Ferrari collector Peter S. Kalikow. This will the the second coachbuilt Ferrari to be shown at the prestigious Italian Concours d’Elegance this year as another famous design house Zagato will also be presenting their new Ferrari 575GTZ, built especially for legendary Japanese Ferrari collector Yoshi Hayashi.
Working in Modena right at the start of Enzo Ferrari’s great adventure, Sergio Scaglietti bodied some of the most beautiful cars ever to emerge from Maranello. Scaglietti wasn’t a man who relied on pencil and paper to create his magnificent designs: he worked like a sculptor, fashioning their forms from aluminum. And now Luca di Montezemolo has dedicated the understated yet historically important all-aluminium 612 to the memory of that great designer.
