2006 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti Review


4-Seat Stallion

In short: A high-performance, four-passenger GT coupe.

This might be the biggest and most comfortable Ferrari, but that doesn't mean it's missing any of that high-performance magic we've all come to expect from vehicles donning a prancing horse. Boasting a powerful 5.7-liter, 532-horsepower V12 that sends this full-size stallion screaming from 0-60 mph in just 4.5 seconds, the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti proves that you don't necessarily have to be small to be speedy.
