2005 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti

Sale Price
Lot Number
RM Sotheby's
Auction House
Chassis No. ZFFAA54A050142651. Azzuro California over dark blue leather. 5748-cc, 540-hp V-12, 6-speed manual. Silver calipers, power heated front seats, climate control, Becker Silverstone CD changer stereo, Pirelli P Zero tires, power windows.

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.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
