2012 Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 6-speed manual

I never thought I'd see the day where the manual transmission would disappear from the Lamborghini lineup, but it has arrived. No longer can one opt for the third pedal in any of the magnificent cars to come from Sant'Agata Bolognese. Much like the 6-speed manual Ferrari 612 Scaglietti we featured recently, this transmission seems to be a relic of the past in high-end sports cars. Which is sad. While they may be more technically advanced, faster and more efficient, it doesn't solve the problem that some motorists, like myself, want their fun back. If you fall into this category, then check out this Gallardo LP550-2 for sale in Texas. This is one of the last 6-speed manual Lamborghinis to be produced and is rear-wheel drive. Like the hue in which it is painted, Bianco Monocerus, we're looking at purity.

White probably wouldn't be the color I'd select on such a shouty supercar, but I certainly wouldn't turn my nose up at it, either. Around $160,000 to $180,000 is about what you would expect to pay currently for an LP500-2 of this vintage with this kind of negligible mileage on the odometer. Considering you would spend well over $200,000 for a 2015 Huracan, I think I'd opt for the last of the three-pedal breed as we see here.

2005 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti 6-speed manual

Large Ferraris remind me of French luxury cars. Often misunderstood, somewhat rare outside their home market and more often than not passed over for their smaller stable mates. Such is the case with the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti, a lesser known model in recent Ferrari history but rather significant, as this would be one of the last front-engined, V12 Ferraris available with a true 6-speed manual gearbox. It was also the second all-aluminum Ferrari behind the 360 Modena. This 612 for sale in Missouri is one of about 10% of 3,025 612 Scaglietti's equipped with the 6-speed manual, looking resplendent in Tour de France Blue.

Ferrari's 2005 612 Scaglietti
Jumbo Grand Touring Family Flagship!
One of only the very few "real Ferrari" gated 6-speed manuals ever produced in this model!
Finished in "unreal" Tour de France Blue with Cuoio Power Daytona leather seats and headliner!
Just turned 20k actual fully serviced miles!
VIN #ZFFAA54A150138852

The largest Ferrari to ever shade the pavement, was designed to be a car capable of blistering Ferrari performance while seating 4 adults! Over 2.8 inches more headroom than its forebear 456 and at the same time 25% more luggage space making this a true "family" Ferrari!

Wow! Powered by a DOHC 5.7 liter, 533 horsepower V-12, the 612 "Scag" becomes the first 12 cylinder Ferrari to use aluminum space frame and body! No Ferrari has ever been so comfortable and easy going! The supple-riding 612 feels soft and pliable, yet controllable at any speed. But at the same time very quick while tapping on the V-12's performance peddle. This Ferrari really goes!

The interior is very roomy while the dashboard is simple but tastefully and beautifully finished, mostly in a variety of leathers. A prominent alloy band separates the dark upper dash from the lighter lower area while incorporating large circulator air vents. The instruments are an incongruous mix of analog and digital displays. The seats are firm, supportive and power adjustable as is the steering wheel. This is a very powerful 4-seat "GT" supercar!

Factory equipped with the very unheard of "Gated 6-speed manual," heated power Daytona seats, Scuderia shields, Rosso Corsa calipers, "HTGS sport package suspension," modular wheels, parking sensors! Wow, what a machine that you can drive everyday and take your kids along as well! Just serviced and inspected including the major belt service completed on 8/15/2014 at 20,382 miles, original keys (2), books, tools in original plastic bags, tire repair kit and excellent service records!

Absolutely pristine example and the one you have been waiting for! This is like going to your Ferrari dealer and finding a new 612 Scaglietti they forgot they had! Once in a lifetime opportunity here with the 6-speed and a color combo that is off the charts! It just doesn't get any better than this. Would love to add you to our 40 year satisfied customer base and will make everything easy and painless with a money back guarantee in writing if not as represented and no one but "Wilhoit" does this. Money isn't worth anything if you don't invest in something you really want!

Please call Michael personally at 417-869-7000 or 417-839-1258 cell/text for an accurate description of this car and the current market conditions! Hurry! Will trade!

I was talking with Andy over at flüssig magazine, as his father is a 612 Scaglietti owner. He frequents the FerrariChat forum and has noted an increase in demand for 612 Scagliettis and 599GTBs with 6-speed manual gearboxes, as Ferrari has ceased making any more cars with three pedals as of 2012. It should be noted that several hundred 612 Scagliettis were recalled in the US market due to a clutch sensor malfunction, so even if they are more efficient and quicker, you still have a bit more reliability with the old foot operated clutch. A small bit of comfort, then, for traditionalists like myself.
