For 2007, the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti remains unchanged.

The 612 Scaglietti is the first 12-cylinder Ferrari with an all-aluminum space frame chassis and body; although it’s a front-engine car, its 46/54 weight distribution means it handles like the company’s mid-engine offerings.

Handcrafted leather seats and interior are brightened with pressed or solid aluminum trim. Features include a dual-zone climate control system, 612-exclusive Bose CD player with six-channel digital unit, automatic headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, and antitheft alarm. A six-speed manual transmission can be optioned to an F1A (for Automatic) gearbox.

The huge 612 Scaglietti drives like a much smaller and lighter car, on its way to a top speed of over 315 km/h. Zero to 100 km/h takes 4.3 seconds. Adaptive dampers can be tuned to Sport mode for tackling any hairpin turns, while 13.6-inch front and 13.0-inch rear brakes handle the rapid deceleration. Since it’s a 2+2, you can technically take your friends along for the ride; but it’s cramped back there, they’ll be uncomfortable, and who really wants to share an experience like this?
