The manual shifter in the 612 is essentially identical to the one in the 550 and 575M and well proven to be reliable and fun to use. Since the engine in the 612 is the same as the 575M engine with manifolding and ECU changes, the high torque engine and manual shifter work together very well. Manual shifter 612 owners have been very happy with their Ferraris, which are relatively rare at somewhere between 5% and 10% of production.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
