As we recently reported Ferrari is preparing an all-new model to replace the 612 Scaglietti. Ferrari chairman has also confirmed the car’s debut at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, speaking of it as a very different model. Now it turns out it is an estate, shooting brake to be precise, version of the old 612.
So the new model, to all intents and purposes, will be the first family Ferrari. It’ll certainly retain the 612’s four-seat format and with a big boot at the back it’ll offer a more practical, more versatile supercar that your golf clubs can be fitted in perfectly! That is slightly worrying. Of course it’s not the first time Ferrari makes an estate car, but all the previous models were one-off tailor made models.
According to Auto Express:
“We know there can never be a Ferrari SUV,” one source insisted. “But we would like to find out what we can put the marque’s DNA into and still have it accepted as a Ferrari.” The replacement for the 612 Scaglietti is also imminent. Codenamed F151, the new two-door coupé will join Ferrari’s GranTurismo line-up to sit alongside the California, but it will be priced at around £230,000 – considerably more than the £143,870 currently charged for the drop-top.
