Evaluation: Original | 5692 miles and still almost like new, save for a small crack noted at the trunklid corner and light wear on the driver’s seat.
Bottom Line: Reported sold by Auctions America at Fort Lauderdale in 2012 for $100,100 showing 4147 miles, compared with today’s 5692 miles. That was before the “six-speed manual” craze took off. Still, this is a relatively eye-opening result that exceeded even RM’s $275,000 high estimate. The special paint helped (and it looks good on this model), but still. How many of the buyers clamoring for a late Ferrari six-speed instead of the paddle-shift F1 gearbox can even manage 540 horsepower and a standard transmission—or, for that matter, will want to, given that the most common exercise for a car like this is around town and in traffic? That this 612 has accumulated only 1545 miles since 2012 is a good indication of just how difficult it is to enjoy.
