Carrozzeria Scaglietti was an Italian automobile design and coachbuilding company active in the 1950s. It was founded by Sergio Scaglietti in 1951 as an automobile repair concern, but was located across the road from Ferrari in Maranello outside Modena, Italy.
Scaglietti gained Enzo Ferrari’s trust and respect both through his bodywork and design skills and for providing a retreat for Dino Ferrari as a youth. Scaglietti is credited with the “headrest” bump present on most racing Ferraris of the 1950s and 1960s, a design at first despised by Enzo but championed by Dino. The company’s 1958 250 Testa Rossa, with its Formula One-inspired pontoons, is one of the most famous Scaglietti designs.
In the mid-1950s, Scaglietti became the Carrozzeria of choice for Ferrari’s racing efforts. Many sports racing prototypes were designed and manufactured at their facility. All those exclusively designed by Scaglietti carried the Scaglietti & C. badge while cars built to outside designs didn’t. Several of Ferrari’s most coveted models such as the 250 California, 250 GTO and 250 Tour de France were built by Scaglietti to a PininFarina design.
Today, the former Scaglietti works is owned by Ferrari and used to produce the aluminum F430 and 612 Scaglietti cars. A special version of the 456, the 456M GT Scaglietti at the time was named in his honour. Then in 2004, Ferrari officially unveiled a new 2+2 GT car, although designed by Pininfarina, the car was to be named the 612 Scaglietti. It was built between 2004 and 2010and was Ferrari’s second all-aluminium vehicle, the first being the 360 Modena. Its space frame, developed with Alcoa, is made from extrusions and castings of the material, and the aluminium body is welded on.
This, the last development of Ferrari’s Tipo 133 V12 before the Enzo’s engine is tweaked for the 575 M successor, is surely the best. Positioning the engine behind the front axle line and suspension opens up space to allow longer, more direct induction, plus reduced exhaust back-pressure. Add a higher compression ratio and the 612 makes an extra 98bhp over the 5.5-litre 456 GT and is 25bhp above the 575 M.
In Mid 2008 Ferrari demonstrated a revised second generation 612 via a ‘One to One’ (OTO) program, where a purchaser could sit down at the Factory in Italy and special order his car to his exact specifications with personal assistance via Ferrari’s Atelier program.
OTO cars featured Ferrari’s revised 599 dual plate clutch Superfast transmission (2 years before the 599 received it), glass electrochromic roof, steering wheel Mannetino, 20″ Challenge wheels and Carbon Ceramic brakes. The HGT2 package option gave the 612 a sport and suspension package similar to the HGTE package later offered on 599′s. OTO cars were therefore, not ordered for inventory and each was custom ordered by customers and generally feature special interiors, options and details coupled with Ferrari’s revised performance attributes that make these limited production cars very special.
LHD, OTO edition, HGT2 Package, Chrome plate front grille, Cruise control, Upper dash in Leather, Full leather interior, Glass electrochromic roof, Steering wheel Mannetino and engine start button, F1 Superfast transmission, Carbon Ceramic Brake, Bose Audio and media system, 20 inch Challenge Wheels, Parking sensors front and rear.
This stunning and rare OTO 612 presents in an immaculate coat off glossy Nero 152 solid black. Although the footprint of the Scaglietti is quite large the Pininfarina design hides the size of the 2+2 well. The twin-projector xenon headlights lead the long and muscular front shoulders, which then give way to the smoother hood line that slopes forward to meet the familiar Ferrari grille. The long scallop detail that runs along both sides of the car is reminiscent of the design cues seen on the 375 MM.
The deep brown quilted leather interior is finished in the finest Italian hide and covers nearly every surface of the cabin.
The car’s interior is roomy with the dashboard beautifully finished with extended leather. The glass electrochromic roof is huge and helps lighten the cabin while accentuating the deep brown colourway. The seats are firm, supportive and electrically adjustable with enough room for a six-footer to sit behind a six-foot driver in the heavily sculpted twin rear seats.
The switch gear, an area Ferrari have been working hard to perfect, remains fresh and clean with no unsightly marks or stains. The OTO edition features Bose audio and media system along with the introduction of the Manettino dial and engine start button both located on the steering wheel.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Under the strikingly long hood lies the V12 power station and with a higher compression ratio over its 575 predecessor is now capable of nearly 540hp. The performance is effortless and eager with huge torque available low down and peak power arriving at 7,200rpm. The V12 motor comes to life with a rasp, settling into a low burble at idle and whilst quite gruff at low speeds the noise when pressing on is just fantastic.
OTO cars featured Ferrari’s revised 599 dual plate clutch Superfast transmission.
