2009 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti Reviews

Vehicle Overview
Billed by Ferrari as a "genuine four-seater," the 612 Scaglietti is the company's first V-12-powered car to feature all-aluminum construction. Even the interior is built with aluminum components. At $300,000, competitors are few, but the short list includes the Bentley Continental GT Speed.

Exterior
The 612 Scaglietti's styling is the work of the Pininfarina organization, which has designed a long list of Ferrari models over the years. Concave, scalloped flanks meant to recall the unique Pininfarina-styled 375 MM Ferrari.

  • Teardrop profile, especially at the cockpit, which sits considerably farther back than usual
  • A low, mouth-shaped grille with horizontal bars and Ferrari's famed prancing horse logo in the center
  • Integrated headlight covers that blend neatly into the front fenders, which flank a long hood


Interior
Four people can sit inside the 612 Scaglietti, which is fitted with aluminum and leather. Ferrari says all four riders can get in and out easily.
  • 8.5-cubic-foot trunk can hold a six-piece set of specially designed luggage
  • Dual-zone climate control
  • Bose audio system
  • Selectable suspension and engine modes, with steering-wheel mounted switches
  • Leather used for the seats is also used on door panels and knee rests


Under the Hood
With its 540-horsepower V-12, Ferrari says the coupe can accelerate from zero to 62 mph in 4.2 seconds. The engine sits behind the front axle, and the gearbox and differential are mounted at the rear. Front and rear overhangs are short.
  • 5.8-liter V-12 engine makes 540 hp at 7,250 rpm and 434 pounds-feet of torque at 5,250 rpm
  • Six-speed manual gearbox or Formula One-style electrohydraulic system available for semi-automatic operation using paddle shifters behind the steering wheel
  • Fuel tank and battery mounted rearward to help achieve normative weight distribution: 46/54 front/rear — surprising for a front-engine automobile


Safety
Safety features include:
  • Electronic stability system
  • Traction control
  • Vented-disc antilock brakes

Warranties Explained

Bumper-to-Bumper

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

Powertrain

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
