Celebrating 50 years of Ferrari in North America, the Italian marque showed its newest sports car for the first time worldwide.
A new sports car from Ferrari is always a treat, and the Italian automaker typically debuts its new models on the European show circuit. However, it seemed appropriate, given this anniversary, that the all-new 612 Scaglietti be shown for the first time in Detroit.
A genuine 4-seat Ferrari, the 612 Scaglietti replaces the aging but still elegant 456M. This new model is the latest in a long line of 12-cylinder 2+2 coupes, dating back to the 1948 166 Inter.
Ferraris goal in building the 612 was to create the best performance 2+2 in the world. The car needed to be lighter than the 456M, but at the same time offer more interior room.
Now this is what we need for the gumball 3000 :)
The Pininfarina-designed 612 Scaglietti is 5.5 inches longer than the 456M it replaces. The extra room provides comfortable seating for four, as well as a trunk that is 25 percent larger, with space for a five-piece Ferrari luggage set or two golf bags.
