Ferrari are taking a four seat Shooting Brake to Geneva. Is it the replacement for the 612 Scaglietti or just a Shooting Brake version of the current car?
Last week we ran a story about the replacement for Ferrari’s four-seat supercar, the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti. The basic premise was that Ferrari would be bringing the replacement for the 612 Scaglietti to the Geneva Motor Show in March, and that it would feature a new, 650bhp V12 engine, and 4×4 platform and be a Shooting Brake.
All of which was a cobbling together from bits of information we’ve received when we started to dig around for information after Ferrari chairman Luca di Montezemolo recently said there will be a “very different Ferrari” at Geneva. But we now think we may have got some of the information muddled.
One source is now telling us that the 612 Ferrari are planning on taking to Geneva is not in fact a replacement for the 612 Scaglietti, but an additional, run-out model. As we reported in the previous story, this Ferrari 612 will be a Shooting Brake and will give Ferrari the opportunity to see how their customers react to a ‘Different’ Ferrari.
Our source says the new engine we mentioned in the pervious story is the engine that will be used in the replacement for the 612, but that car won’t see the light of day until Frankfurt in the Autumn.
Take you pick on the stories. Both are credible and both are certain there will be a Ferrari 612 Shooting Brake at Geneva.
