A very fast Ferrari 612 Scaglietti seen a second hand car dealer in Beijing. The good Ferrari was wrapped in a very happy metallic-shiny-red color, almost cherry-red, that blinded all who came to close, like me, I couldn’t see a thing for the next 30 minutes. But I got the pics!
The Ferrari 612 was made from 2004 until 2011, it was the first big Ferrari coupe that was officially exported to China. Power came from a 5.7 liter V12 pooping out 530hp. This particular example was from 2007, did 12.000 kilometer and was priced at 2.57 million yuan, or 400.000 USD. When new the 612 did at least 650.000 USD in China. Well, I’ll take it when they take the wrap off! There is more; a sales lady told me the former owner was a “famous TV personality”, but she didn’t say who exactly. Still, sure worth the money then.
Sales lady behind bonnet, she got annoyed when I said I was going for a Lambo. That indeed, was not so nice. To make it up:
