Pros: Tremendous acceleration, near-perfect handling, true manual transmission

Cons: Not Ferrari's most beautiful effort, rather large, expensive

What's new: The 2010 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti was unchanged in its sixth and final model year. It was replaced for 2012 by the Ferrari FF hatchback.

Overview:

The 612 Scaglietti replaced the beautiful 456 as Ferrari's 4-seat grand tourer. Only offered as a coupe, the 612 Scaglietti debuted for the 2005 model year. As Ferrari's luxury model, the 612 came with more creature comforts than the brand's other models, along with a more refined ride and driving experience.

Under the 612 Scaglietti's hood was a 5.8-liter V12 that produced 540 horsepower. A 6-speed manual, though extremely rare, was standard; most drivers opted for the brand's F1A single-clutch automatic. For the 2007 model year, Ferrari offered a glass-roofed Sessanta model which was limited to just 60 units.

The 2010 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti started around $314,000. That's a huge increase from its original base price in 2005, which was closer to $250,000. The 2010 model year also marked the arrival of Ferrari's sporty California convertible, which offered 612-level performance with a starting price of just $200,000.
