Maranello, 22. June 2007 – Hardly any manufacturer celebrates its 60th birthday more rudely than Ferrari: For half a year, a relay race caused a stir. It drove in 148 days through about 50 countries from five continents. Only on the 24. June 2007 marks the end of the celebrations at the company’s headquarters in Maranello.
Only 60 pieces built
But that’s not all: A special model is launched to mark the anniversary: the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti Sessanta. Its special feature is already the number: only 60 units of the powerful special car will be built. Like every 612, the special model is powered by a 540 hp V12 cylinder engine. The power unit allows the exceptional sports car to sprint to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds and achieve a top speed of 320 km. The Sessanta also has a special glass roof: it can be darkened electrochromatically. The interior features a special leather interior by Paltrona Frau and a start button positioned directly on the steering wheel.
In addition, each of the special Ferraris has a different badge on the center console: it shows a motif of the Ferrari motorsport logo, which changes every year. Ferrari has not announced a price for the edition model; all 60 cars are said to have already found an owner anyway. The purchase cost of the car was allowed to be a little above that of the normal 612: it cost about 223.000 Euro.
