The Ferrari 612 Is the Absolute Bargain Modern Ferrari V12


Ferrari 612 Scaglietti review! The Ferrari 612 Scaglietti is a special car -- a V12-powered luxury grand touring coupe that's becoming a total bargain. Today I'll show you around the 612 and show you why it's such a bargain -- and I'll reveal all of the quirks and features of the 612 Scaglietti. I'm also going to drive the 612 and show you what it's like on the road.

    2008 is the best starting year for any Ferrari search; that is when Ferrari finally decided to equip all of their cars with ceramics. Read your owners manual, which will contain a rather complete explanation of all of those little mysteries which often bemuse and sometimes baffle Doug. The is the last of the Ferrari which has a 'normal' steering wheel, with steering column stalks for things like turn signals, windshield wipers, etc. Thereafter, the "put-everything-on-the-steering-wheel" phenomenon began to gain headway.

    Doug, only a petrol head would consider buying that car, and they wouldn't ever listen to the radio or CD player when they can listen to the engine noise instead. I have and old Porsche and in 40,000 miles of motoring have never turned on the radio. Cheers

    Love Ferraris but because of how ostentatious a lot of newer models have become, the more laid back designs really appeal to me more. I remember seeing the 612 in media when new and did think about how ugly they seemed, but I’ve completely gone back on that. It’s elegant without being too conventional. Now, if only I was a rich man...

    This is one of very few Ferraris that looks bad in red. Other than that, I'm a huge, huge fan. It also looks a lot better with multi-spoke, Ferrari Challenge wheels which are slightly bigger than pictured.

    @Tommyvercetty GT agreed - subtle colours make the 612 feel more luxurious, almost Bentley-esque. I did see one in a shade of metallic brown with a peanut butter interior, and it just oozed class

    Doug how important is the mileage on a current Ferrari? Is it all about the service and maintenance? Is there a mileage limit that would turn a current Ferrari into a "leave it alone"? Of course with collector units the mileage would take a big back seat, or so I suppose. Thanks for all your work. Be happy, be safe.

    The only Ferrari that doesn’t get pulled over simply because it’s a Ferrari, lol. Why? Because the cops don’t really see it as a Ferrari so it blends into the landscape like any other rounded off car of its time. Unless of course the cop is a real Ferrari fan, lol. It’s unfortunate but true. If there is a pack of cars with a Ferrari in there when the radar gun is monitoring the roadway, if it’s not an automatic camera and just a cop in a car, the Ferrari gets picked pretty much every time, even if sitting in the slow lane. Especially if it’s a bright color. 🤨🧐

    This car just had a service to its brakes and belts that cost more than I paid for most of the cars I've ever owned… (Three. I've paid over $20k for three vehicles. Out of ten vehicles I've bought.) Edit: I stand corrected - the service wasn't actually $20,000, it was "only" $18,403 - so a fourth vehicle was more expensive than this.

    I rarely get Doug's styling conclusions. Especially in this instance. This car looks really sporty but doesn't scream "OH I'M SO FAST SMALL BALLS OMFG" as bad as most fast cars - in fact, it could even lose the badging and red calipers to improve on that. In my book, classy will ALWAYS surpass sporty, especially if the experience is still reasonably sporty. Flashy sporty crazy looking cars will always have an aura of try-hard to me. Make it subtle but roar, and I'm impressed. Make it look classy and I'll salivate over it. If it's over the top, no matter the numbers, I'll assume you either have no other joys in life and/or should pay WAY more taxes than you probably do.
