Ferrari 612 Sessanta 2008 Nero

The Ferrari 612 Scaglietti was Ferrari’s replacement for the smaller Ferrari 456, its larger size results in the 612 having adequate space in the rear seats for adults. The design, especially the large side scallops and the headlights, pays homage to the coach built 1954 Ferrari 375 MM that director Roberto Rossellini had commissioned for his wife, Ingrid Bergman.

The 612 was Ferrari's second all-aluminium vehicle, the first being the 360 Modena. Its space frame, manufactured in collaboration with Alcoa, is made from extrusions and castings of the material, and the aluminium body is then welded on. Its engine is shared with the Ferrari 575 Superamerica, with a compression ratio of 11:1 the car was able to attain a top speed of 323 km/h and accelerate from 0–100 km/h in 4.2 seconds.

Two choices of transmissions were available on the 612, a 6-speed manual or the 6-speed semi-automatic paddle shift transmission designated the F1A, a much refined version of the F1 transmission used in the 360.

The body of 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 to the Ferrari factory located at Maranello were the V12 engine along with the interior were installed. A total of 3,025 cars were ultimately produced.

The 612 Sessanta is a limited (60 unit) variant of the 612 commemorating the 60th anniversary of the marque. Standard equipment included 19-inch forged aluminum wheels, black chrome exhaust tips, the automated manual F1 transmission, three-position electrochromic glass roof, start/stop ignition button on the steering wheel, Bose infotainment system and a two-tone paint. The two-tone paint was only available in two choices; Grigio Scuro with Grigio Scuro side line & Rubino Micalizzato/Nero Daytona with Rubino Micalizzato side line.

Almost all of the cars were painted in these two-tone colour schemes, but just a handful were produced with single tone colours.

The 612 Sessanta shown here is one of those few rara cars painted in a single tone paint scheme, this car was painted in Nero. It was originally delivered in the Netherlands in 2008. Since then the car has driven only 49.239 km. Every 612 Sessanta comes with a unique badge portraying Ferrari’s history. This example contains the Ferrari 250 GT 1953 badge.
