- The Ferrari 612 Scaglietti since the early 2000s it hasn’t necessarily been anyone’s choice for a classic of all time because it had some awkward style.
- However, he is sure to withstand the test of time, like his V-12 with a capacity of 533 liters.
- This model is up for sale on Bring the trailer. And although the auction ends only on Monday, March 21, the auction is already $ 150,000.
Sometimes you don’t know what you have until it disappears, and it seems to be the case with that 2005 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti six-speedis currently up for sale on the Bring a Trailer auction site, which is like Car and driveris part of Hearst Autos.
At one time, the 612 was kind of weird – much more expensive and less powerful than the Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG, although it outperformed the Mercedes CL600 (and Bentley Continental GT and Aston Martin DB9) in Comparative test 2004. But this victory was contrary to her style, not thanks to her. In this test, we casually mentioned its “awkward long hood, cab proportions behind” and “unconvincing style” and spent much more time on how great the ride was. The Ferrari V-12 takes away a lot of sins. Is the Ferrari V-12 connected to a six-speed manual transmission with a closed switch? It can be installed in a Kia Amanti and we would still like that. But no one considered the 612 Scaglietti a future classic.
Well, maybe it’s a special blue Azzurro Argentina paint or photos here, but the Pininfarina 612 style is getting pretty old. Its soft bends date back to another era, as did its powerplant: the 5.7-liter smokeless V-12, which was rated at 533 horsepower and 434 pound-feet of torque. The BAT list says that only about 60 612 cars with mechanical transmission hit the US, and this estimate is consistent with the fact that Ferrari told us at launch in 2004 for the car. At the time, Ferrari had 200 orders for a car in the U.S., and 90 percent of them were for a single-clutch F1 clutch.
At this 612 drove 15,000 miles, which seems right to us – it’s still, in fact, a new car, but you can drive it as much as you want and not worry about depreciation. The original price of the sticker was $ 271,664, including $ 2005 options that were fun to write by hand (“stitching in blue media, steering wheel in blue media, painted metal strip on the dashboard”). Above this line are 13 other options that are most characteristic of the one that is missing: automatic transmission. It’s pretty hard to live in New York (where this car was first delivered) and enjoy the guidance. Good job, you old plutocrat.
It’s still over a week, so we have time before we find out how much the world is willing to pay for one of Ferrari’s latest V-12 mechanics. But we are already confident that the 612, which was once considered profitable, is about to get its due.
