Lot 250 - 2006 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti “From the Cheesbrough Collection“
The Scaglietti 2+2 Coupé was penned by Frank Stephenson under Ken Okuyama at Pininfarina, and it is said that design, especially the strident side scallops and headlights, were a nod to the coachbuilt 1954 375 MM that film director, Roberto Rossellini, had commissioned for his wife Ingrid Bergan. The newcomer replaced the outgoing 456 but, being physically larger, was a genuine four-seat Grand Tourer. It was Ferrari's second all-aluminium vehicle and comprised of a spaceframe manufactured in conjunction with Alcoa, that was a combination of extrusions and castings to which the body was then welded. The same chassis formed the basis of Ferrari's 599 GTB flagship Grand Tourer. The front, mid-mounted, V12 powerplant was shared with the 575 Superamerica and was not six litres as the name suggests but 5.7, though big enough for a healthy power output of 533bhp and equally impressive performance figures, including a 0-62mph time of 4.2 seconds and a top speed north of the magic 200mph. A total of just 3,025 examples were manufactured between 2004 and 2011, all but 199 of which featured the F1A gearbox.
This superb low mileage example is presented in Nero Daytona with black leather interior and comes with its original Ferrari leather wallet with all the manuals, including its service book which has all the servicing stamps from new to 2022 by HR Owen and Autofficina. Included in the history file are various invoices showing expenditure over the last few years and it has a current MoT test certificate which expires in September 2024. The condition of this fabulous Ferrari is exemplary with no visible signs of stone chips or scratches upon inspection. Offered with no reserve, this is a great opportunity to join the upper echelon of sports car owners worldwide. Consigned by James Good.
