2005 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti

Three pedal manual transmissions are becoming a thing of the past with Italian sports car manufacturers. While the newer automated manuals may shift faster and return greater efficiency than the traditional manual gearbox, driver involvement is diluted and more often than not these transmissions are a bit cranky at lower speeds around town. The debate on which solution is better will continue for a long time, but for me, I'll always choose three pedals over two. This Ferrari 612 Scaglietti is the last of the breed when it comes to Ferrari touring coupes with a V12 engine mounted up front backed up by a traditional 6 speed manual transmission. Though a bit more awkward proportionally than it's predecessor, the 456M, these cars do a good job of masking just how large they are.

2005 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti six speed finished in Nero over Nero hides. This is a nice 612, books and records, new clutch at 37K miles (always at the dealer). Ferrari car cover and tools. Don’t miss out on this four seater V12 with a six speed. Only 70 six speeds made in 2005.

The miles this Ferrari has covered is no mean feat, but it is heartening to hear that the clutch has been replaced. One should comb through the rest of the records to see if any further servicing would be needed, as any fixes for this car will not be an inexpensive proposition. Originally this car carried a sticker price of about $250,000. Like most four place Ferraris, depreciation hits these grand touring machines hard. After seven years, a discount of 58% is rather attractive, but if this was priced just under $100,000, say, around $90,000 to $95,000, it would be more in line with the market for an earlier model like this with above average mileage.
