Sorry but I have never been taken by the looks and find it far to heavy for a Ferrari. There is a reason that the 456 GT is the king of depreciation and the 612 is quickly following in its footsteps.That's a bit brutal, Boxer.
IMHO it's an awesome car but I can't love the looks. I've seen quite a couple on the road so I must assume it's selling well enough. Personally I would never buy one because a) I don't have kids, and b) it's not what Ferrari does best. I'd buy a Maserati Quattroporte or something for half the price or less.
If you can deal with the fact that it's in Dutch, then here's a nice roadtest:
Welcome and your english is excellent. Every Ferrari is special to its owner. Enjoy your 612.i own a 612 scaglietti, the car is really beautyful and i read that some people don't think it as a real ferrari....
for me is comfortable, and it's what i was looking for...
sorry for my english but im italian....
I now keep mine on battery conditioners all the time. Since I started doing this, never had a problem with the battery or any other electrical items.however, my friend has a 599 black... very goodlooking but the rear of the car its more nice with 4 stop and not 2... so mine i like more...
i have some problem in this period, the battery always blow (it doesn't start car) and many other problem about electronic system (doesn't open the rear fuel cap, the rear door (baggage) doesn't open to... and other such confusional problem that make me nervous...
Dear comrade julian4,Just wanted to know,
What does everyone think about the Ferrari 612?
You might have better luck with some of the Ferrari dealers on the East Coast. The market their is slowing down as a lot of the young Wall Street bankers will not be taking home mega bonuses this year. It is true that the waiting list for the 430 and 599 stretches for several years but their are plenty of 1-2 year old cars on the market. If you are willing to go this route, then I would contact a broker to arrange the purchase (Mike Sheehan at ferraris-online.com, is highly recommended in the US). If you have your heart set on a new car, then your best bet is to call around to a few different dealers and see who will offer the earliest delivery.I'm new to this group and I do not own a Ferrari yet.
I contacted my nearest dealer ( Las Vegas Nevada USA ) and I was informed
that the wait for anything but a 612 was years and years plus a huge premium just to get it. Is this true everywhere?
When you order a new 612 can you get options?
Is what are they?
I would appreciate any other Information that can be provided!
I thank you for any and all replys!
Ahem . . . My S65 has a V12 with 604hp (before chip), carrires 4 people and a weeks worth of luggage and it outpulls just about everything on the road. And its looks make it a bit of a stealth car. Still, I will admit it does not grab you soul like a ferrari.The 612 Is Not That Beautiful. It Looks A Bit Outdated. But The V12 530hp In A 4 Seater Is Outrageous.
