“The car also benefits from improvements to the F1 transmission by way of modified software resulting in 20% reduced shift times in normal driving, whilst 30% improvement in more aggressive situations. The shifts are more comfortable under normal conditions and get quicker and more firm as the car is driven more aggressively. Gearshift noise has been reduced and greater comfort when shifting in auto-normal mode and sportier when in sporting mode”.
Design & Styling
Masterfully styled by Pininfarina, its good looks are as innovative as the design of the 612 Scaglietti, and exude dynamism and power. The result is an imposing car, with a long sleek bonnet, strong lines and signature scooped flanks borrowed from the famous Rossellini-Bergman 37 MM. The cabin can be completely personalised to the Client’s taste, and features high-tech aluminium elements and handcrafted full-grain leather trim.
Sporty and sophisticated interior
Fiery, dynamic, powerful-looking from the outside. Luxurious sophisticated and sumptuously comfortable inside. The 612 Scaglietti is a thrilling sophisticated and agile car to drive but it’s also designed for longer journeys and city use too.
The cabin arrangement and careful ergonomic study mean that it has four full seats in its elegant roomy cabin. Getting into and out of the 612 Scaglietti is easy too, thanks to special door hinges that ensure that the doors open wider. There’s also an electric “easy entry-exit” switch which lowers the front seat and its headrest and slides it forward while the steering wheel tilts. The roomy interior is complemented by a boot that can accommodate the six-piece luggage set made specifically for the model by Ferrari.
A conceptual shift
Sculptural forms and sinuous lines
Ferrari made a conceptual shift with Pininfarina, ensuring the 612 Scaglietti would be a genuine departure from previous GT models.
The Prancing Horse’s story is one of prestige, aristocratic cars designed to meld effortless elegance with powerful sporty performance. A glorious past beautifully embodied by the utterly unique 612 Scaglietti. Ferrari has always been a major presence in the GT world. In fact, the launch of its 166 Inter in 1948 hailed the era of the 2+2 models, two-door four-seaters that delivered both thrilling driving and comfortable interiors. Since that time, Ferrari has produced a succession of enormously successful 2+2s, from the 212 Inter in 1951 to the 456M in the 1990s.
Offering unparalleled space and airiness: all four occupants really will feel as if they’re travellng in a drop-top.
The 612 Scaglietti’s innovative panoramic stratified glass roof extends from windscreen to rear window, right across the top of the cabin, giving all four occupants the drop-top driving sensation of space and airiness yet with all the comfort of a coupé. The roof also has three tint level settings.
Trasmission and transaxle
The rear-mounted gearbox is connected to the differential, with bevel-type final drive and limited-slip differential.
The 612 Scaglietti’s transaxle trasmission sees the rear-mounted gearbox in unit with the differential with bevel-type final drive and limited-slip differential in the same function.
This is a six-gear set-up with multi-cone synchronisers. The limited-slip differential is calibrated for 25% under acceleration and 45% on lift off to offer optimal balance between traction and stability in any condition.
Aluminium chassis and body
Aluminium engineering means the car is lighter and safer, with a higher torsional stiffness and damped vibration.
The 612 Scaglietti was the first ever all-aluminium Ferrari 12-cylinder to be built. The decision to use this exceptional metal was an audacious one but entirely consistent with the car’s design. In fact, the 612 Scaglietti’s light, rigid structure delivers a series of advantages in terms of weight reduction, dynamic behaviour, and occupant comfort and safety.
In-car entertainment system
Listening to music aboard the 612 Scaglietti is an all-embracing experience.
Listening to music aboard the 612 Scaglietti is a breathtaking experience. The sound system offers the same kind of audio quality of a top flight home entertainment centre. This 2DIN system, eight-channel digital unit features Surround Sound, was developed especially for the 612 Scaglietti cabin. As a result, the acoustics are flawless no matter what the driving conditions. The uMusicTM intelligent playback system automatically stores and organises your music on the internal hard disk, learning from your listening preferences and making successive selections for you based on tone and rhythm analysis, independent of genre, singer/composer or album.

I can now add: There were a total of 54 RHD UK-spec One-to-Ones. That covers UK, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, South Africa etc. So, I think that confirms approximately 40 UK cars (or, if you prefer, less than 40) as a safe statement.
