The Sessanta (Sixty) variant was created to commemorate 60 years of Ferrari production with, appropriately, only 60 being built. Enhancements to the standard specification included 19″ forged aluminium wheels, an ‘electrochromic’ glass sunroof and ‘612 Sessanta’ badges both inside and out. What was also enhanced was the price, which in the USA was a whopping $424,000.
Introduced in 2007, the Sessanta was a limited edition variant of the already exclusive Ferrari 612 Scaglietti, which had debuted back in 2004. In naming its new four-seater Gran Turismo after Carrozzeria Scaglietti, Ferrari acknowledged the immense contribution made by its Maranello neighbour and close collaborator over the preceding 50 years. Founded by Sergio Scaglietti in 1951 and now a wholly-owned subsidiary, the company has been responsible for manufacturing many of Ferrari’s most memorable cars.
Supplied new in 2008, this beautiful example is presented in probably the finest Sessanata colour combination of Rubino Micalizzato over Nero Daytona. The history file includes detailed Ferrari invoices from new. The exceptionally low mileage makes this car highly desirable.
