2005 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti 2dr Coupe (5.7L 12cyl 6M)


Review

When I first purchased the car I was extremly thrilled. However, after few days I discovered so many faults in the car. The handling and performance of the car is amazing!! However: 1. The car had very strong smell of fuel inside. 2. Every hole in the road sounds like if the car was going to break down. 3. The handbrake did not stop the car! I sent the car to the Ferrari shop which tried several times to fix it. The service was very good however, the car continued to have the same faults. In my opinion $260,000 car should be perfect. This car is worth only for racing, not for daily use. Don't buy this car. Thanks

2005 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti 2dr Coupe (5.7L 12cyl 6M)


Review

Be it cruising or racing on the freeway, this car is pure pleasure. IT has enormous reserves when doing overtaking maneuvres. It is also very stable on the road, goes straight like it is on rails and is very agile in corners. It also is very good in the winter or when driving on wet slick streets.


Best Features

The Formula 1 gearshifting and acceleration.


Worst Features

There should be better quality control of nitgritty stuff. For example, the window operating leaver broke off on the third day and the light's washer cover fell off on the first day, I drove around with scotchtape holding in in place for about a week.

2005 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti F1 2dr Coupe (5.7L 12cyl 6AM)


Review

This car provides stunning performance without sacrificing the comfort. The engine is downright frightening. The F1 shifts are flawless. The interior is not cramped with room in the back for small kids or quick dinner adult trips. I truly can't get enough of this car. Yes downright expensive "close to 300 thousand". However I am satisfied after purchase.


Best Features

Seats, engine, dash computer, braking, handling, and back seats. I really am happy with this car.


Worst Features

13 MPG is a setback regarding the "clean air" feelings. That is it however. This 612 Scaglietti is outrageous. Positively I have driven nothing this good. Quality is high for Ferrari as well.

2005 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti F1 2dr Coupe (5.7L 12cyl 6AM)


Review

This car has grown on my like a weed! The straight line tracking and solid acceleration on a fairly large body, is almost mind boggling! When you pull up to valet the 612 Scaglietti, you are swarmed like nothing ever witnessed. Quality has been good, although a few minor electronic computer gremlins that were fixed with a software update.


Best Features

Seats, styling, "F-1 Winner, Prancing Horse Emblem" under key start switch. Excellent straight line feel, with good braking power. This is not a "Loud" Lambo or 430. Those are awesome cars, but this brings in a whole new level.


Worst Features

Automatic mode on F-1 Paddle series is abominable. Jerky shifts, almost embarrassing. No other issues however.

Review

I got my manual 6 speed in June of 2005 and it has exceeded my expectations. It is truly everything that a gentleman's GT car should be. Stunning styling, great craftmanship, easy to use controls, and of course great performance. It also has enough room to load up friends and/or luggage and take off ona Grand Tour, something you can't do in a Lambo.
