The 612 replaced the 456 and its pop-up headlights. It became, at the same time, longer, wider and about 100 kg fatter. Nevertheless, the Scaglietti inherited an amazing 5.7 V12 from the 575 Superamerica that developed 540 hp, around a hundred more than the previous car. It had one mission, seat comfortably up to four people in the most stylish way. This 2+2 coupé grand tourer could go from 0 to 100 km/h in only 4.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 323 km/h.
