Introduced in 2007, the Sessanta was a limited edition variant of the already exclusive Ferrari 612 Scaglietti, which had debuted back in 2004. In naming its new four-seater Gran Turismo after Carrozzeria Scaglietti, Ferrari acknowledged the immense contribution made by its Maranello neighbour and close collaborator over the preceding 50 years. Founded by Sergio Scaglietti in 1951 and now a wholly-owned subsidiary, the company has been responsible for manufacturing many of Ferrari’s most memorable cars.
The 612’s design brief called for a car capable of accommodating four adults in comfort, rather than being merely a ‘2+2’, without sacrificing any of the superlative driving dynamics excepted by dedicated Ferraristi. The biggest Ferrari road car when introduced, the 612 afforded increased rear-seat knee room, almost 3″ more headroom and considerably greater luggage space than its 456M forebear, courtesy of a wheelbase lengthened by all of 13.8″.
Not content with merely shedding weight as a means of boosting performance, the 612 featured an improved version of the 575M Maranello’s 5,748cc 65-degree V12 engine producing 540bhp and capable of reaching 196 mph.
The Sessanta (Sixty) variant was created to commemorate 60 years of Ferrari production with, appropriately, only 60 being built. Enhancements to the standard specification included 19″ forged aluminium wheels, an ‘electrochromic’ glass sunroof and ‘612 Sessanta’ badges both inside and out. What was also enhanced was the price, which in the USA was a whopping $424,000.
Finished in the striking colour of Rosso Scuro, this most exclusive and beautiful of modern Ferraris is an essential addition to any Ferrari collection. Inside, our 612 Sessanta is stylishly fashioned with a focus on comfort and practicality, the car looks stunning in extra-campionario, hand crafted Tan hide with contrasting Brown top-roll and steering wheel. This is a sporting, sophisticated interior that reflects the 612’s high-tech soul and old-world pedigree. Dual-zone climate control and a specially developed nine-speaker Bose digital sound system were among the host of desirable standard features.
First registered on 18th March 2008, the Sessanta offered here is one of only four right-hand drive cars delivered to the UK. ‘HWN 612’ has covered a mere 15,600 miles from new and comes with a comprehensive Ferrari service history. There are seven stamps in the service booklet, the most recent of which is dated 1st July 2016.
