The present Ferrari 612 Scaglietti unlike most of its siblings can seat four adults comfortably was penned by Italdesign-Giugiaro S.P.A design studio back in 2006. Autoexpress brings us pictures of the upcoming version which seems to have its wheelbase extended slightly to offer more space to the passengers. According to them the next generation 612 Scaglietti 5.7-litre V12 will be upgraded to a direct-injectction 6.0-litre version boosting power from 540bhp to 600bhp. This translates into mind boogling performance where the 0-60mph sprint is done in less than four seconds with top speed hitting 200 mph.
Apart from the heart transplant, the Scaglietti will be fitted with a tweaked version of the seven-speed double-clutch gearbox first seen on the California that will work hand in hand with the engine to cut greenhouse gas emmisions & fuel consumption. Sales are expected to commence in 2011 bearing a price tag in the neighborhood of £225,000.
