2009 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti Review

Pricey with a spacious and luxurious interior.

Reviewed by Automotive on

Overview

The 2009 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti is a two-door coupe that bridges the gap between a family vehicle and a luxury coupe. This isn’t your cheap crossover, however. With a steep price tag, consumers get a lot of extra cargo space, legroom, and headroom.

A One-to-One program allows a potential buyer to sit down in the Ferrari workshop and speak with the engineers about their specific needs.

The Range

Body Styles: Coupe
Engines: 5.7-liter V-12
Transmissions: six-speed automatic
Models: 612 Scaglietti F1 OTO

What's New

The 2009 F1 gearbox available on the HTGS improves gear upshift due to a recalibration. The manettino knob on the steering wheel is also new in the 2009 model year. The knob allows the driver to switch between five different driving modes while on the go.

Exterior

The 2009 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti was designed by the Pininfarina styling house but fails to impress like previous Ferrari models. The exterior is a bit mundane with its smooth, if not curvaceous, contours. The 2009 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti has a lot of standard equipment, including Xenon headlights, 18-inch front wheels, 19-inch back wheels for better aerodynamics, high-performance tires, an adaptive suspension system, a knob on the steering wheel for controlling different functions throughout the car, a power-closing trunk, rear park assist, heated exterior mirrors, automatic dual-zone climate controls, and power front seats.

Interior

The 2009 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti's interior is cavernous. Cargo space with all the seats in place is an incredible 8.8 cubic feet. Not many cars with a V-12 engine can boast such room. The spacious cabin is lined in leather with some chrome accents added on the HTGS package. The steering wheel buttons make shifting functions on the fly a snap.

Unfortunately, even with all this room, the back bucket seats take a bit of flexibility to reach. The rear side bolsters sticking out make it a tough ride for larger passengers. Headroom and legroom is quite nice, but passengers may find it difficult to enter and exit the vehicle.

The fixed electrochromatic sunroof is a nice feature. Unlike other supercars, the 2009 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti is really spacious. The vehicle is 77 inches wide and 52 inches tall. There are a ton of optional features, including a spare tire kit, heated front seats, and a fitted luggage set that matches the vehicle.

Performance & Handling

One of the 2009 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti's big thrills is its big V-12 engine. A 5.7-liter engine produces 532 horsepower with 434 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mounted so that it is considered a front-mid engine. The placement reduces a bit of the noise from the engine. Controlling the V-12 is the F1 six-speed transmission that can switch between automatic and manual mode depending on the amount of control a driver requires. Shift paddles that are mounted on the steering wheel control the gears. The 2009 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds, quite fast for such a heavy vehicle. The 2009 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti has a top speed of around 200 mph.

The steering is smooth and controlled even with the high curb weight. The car even handles superbly during heavy acceleration. The shifting is smooth and easy to control with the shift paddles. The 2009 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti is an altogether fun ride. An available HTGS package helps improves performance with a F1 tuned gearbox that has a greater response time, carbon-ceramic disc brakes, different wheels, and further chrome accents throughout the vehicle

Safety

For a family-oriented luxury coupe, the 2009 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti does not boast the greatest safety features. While the vehicle has standard anti-lock disc brakes, stability control, and traction control, side curtain airbags are absent. However, Ferrari says the 2009 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti is safe without it due to the heavy beam design.
