Ferrari 612 Scaglietti (skal-yeti) is a Gran Turismo car produced by Ferrari since 2004. It is a large two door fastback coupe with a 2+2 seating arrangement. The 612 Scaglietti was designed to replace the smaller Ferrari 456M. Its larger size makes it a true 4 seater with adequate space in the rear seats for adults.
It is produced at Ferrari’s Carrozzeria Scaglietti plant, the former home of the car’s namesake coachbuilder in Modena, Italy. The design, especially the large side scallops and the headlights, pays homage to the custom 1954 Ferrari 375 MM that director Roberto Rossellini had commissioned for his wife, Ingrid Bergman.
The styling of the 612 Scaglietti has proven to be controversial at best. Despite its classic roots, with the overall form of the car being very similar to the 250 GTO’s, it is considered by some to be rather ungainly, a criticism that is most often directed toward the small rounded headlights and the middle of the car’s front being shorter than the sides. Some also find the length of the hood (which is partially disguised by the side scallops) to be disproportionate to the rest of the body. Others find it merely unassuming: Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson opined that car isn’t really noticeable compared to other Ferraris.
