Ferrari 612 Scaglietti--Video Test Drive with Chris Moran
A beautiful Ferrari 612 Scaglietti presented by Chris Moran. This gorgeous Ferrari is furnished by our friends at D&M Motorsports. Presented by Chris Moran
Twelve cylinders. Twelve. To the less-than-knowledgeable automotive enthusiast, that's how many V's this car has and it's twelve V's are derived from the monumental Enzo Ferrari. Yes, it's a V12 engine. In this humble man's opinion, anything with a 12-cylinder motor qualifies as exotic. Combined with the ultra-exclusivity of the 612 Scaglietti, this car is truly is Ferrari's everyday supercar.
Let's go all the way back to the 12-cylinder Ferrari Testarossa. Launched in 1985, the Testarossa was a wildly designed, anything-but-conventional modern-day supercar. While Ferrari had been making great cars in the mid 80's, they never quite had the wow factor of the poster-worthy Lamborghini Countach.
In the rear of the Testarossa sat the 4.9 liter Flat-12 engine. What's a flat-12? Sometimes called a "boxer", the pistons basically fire at each other on a 180 degree flat angle, hence the name "flat". The benefit is a lower center of gravity than a conventional v-style layout, aiding the handling in the process.
The Testarossa ushered in a successful flagship model for Ferrari. With nearly 10,000 produced over it's 10 year run, it captured much of the marketplace in which it helped define. In 1992, Ferrari revised the Testarossa to become the 512 TR. Largely unchanged, there were minor refinements to the driveline and appearance, and a Boost in power from 381 to 421 horsepower. In 1995, the F512 M was created to commemorate the last year of the Testarossa. With a new front-engined replacement on the way, they made only 500 of the F512 M. This car is indeed a rare collectible.
When the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti arrived on the scene, the first adjectives to describe the appearance were not very kind. It seemed somewhat bulbous in appearance, It's soft lines dampened its aggressive edge A very large car by Ferrari's standards, it's a real 2+2 configuration, with the front-engined V12 following the tradition of it's predecessor. Just to illustrate, the 612 Scaglietti is within 6 inches of the current CL550's length and has a four inch wider berth. That's no small car.
Under the hood is a 5.8 liter V12, in this car it's mated to the 6-speed F1 manual. While single-clutch sequential transmission are pretty much a thing of the past, the Ferrari F1 setup always amazes me at how smooth and transparent it is. I had chance to experience the newest F1 "Superfast" in the F430 Scuderia. That's the best a single clutch with ever get. It's a two-pedal setup that is still a true manual transmission. You have a computer that manages the clutch, depending on the vehicle settings and driver inputs. To drive as a manual, you engage the right paddle located on the steering wheel to upshift, the left paddle to downshift. If you don't feel like shifting, press the "AUTO" button prominently displayed on the console. The computer will manage the shifting for you, so you can drive it as you would any other automatic sedan. Don't get me wrong, this setup will never be able to duplicate the silky-smoothness of a torque-converter in a traditional automatic, but it does a great job trying.
Taking those virtues into account, add the most important ingredient, the 5.8 Liter 48-valve V12 engine. It's rated at 540 horsepower, making abundant torque in the low revs. This engine just wants to be run to it's redline all day long, as if it's not happy unless you are purposefully trying to spend the night in jail.
My 2011 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti on the GP F1 Circuit
Driving my 612 around the GP f1 circuit on our local Ferrari Club track
event. With me is one of the official Ferrari test drivers from Maranello,
from the Ferrari Corsa Pilota giving me track driving tips and teaching me
the best way to drive the car. What an amazing day out.

Ferrari 612 on the Dyno. The car's ECU/computer
didn't like being on the Dyno, so the numbers are a bit
lower than they should be. . 442 HP, 340 lb/ft torque at the tires. (The
engine is rated at 540HP at the crank.)

Ferrari 430 Scuderia Novitec Twin-Supercharged-D&M Motorsports Video Review 2012 Chris Moran
Chris goes for a spin in a 2008 Ferrari 430 Scuderia equipped with
Novitec's Twin Supercharger System
that's good for 717 horsepower. It's quite a
ride and quite a rush. Presented by D&M Motorsports. www.dmautosales.com
"It takes cojones to tuck into a new Ferrari in hopes of ending up with an
improved street machine. Pininfarina showcars don't really count, since
that's like cheating. And race-prepared GT2-class racing cars don't count
either, since we don't see any Le Mans racers parked in front of sushi bars
or Circle K.
But the 2009 Ferrari 430 Scuderia by Novitec Rosso is another thing
entirely. While a Ferrari 430 Scuderia impresses, this twin-supercharged
Novitec Rosso enters the territory of shock and awe.
Novitec's Wolfgang Hagedorn does business in the German town of Stetten (an
undeniably manure-perfumed burg in the German province of Swabia, not far
from Stuttgart). He's a hell of a businessman, but he's still what many
non-risk-takers would call a nut case. After years of up-rating Fiats and
Alfa Romeos (not hard to do in the 1990s), Hagedorn sucked it up in 2001
and bought three Ferrari 360 Modenas for tinkering purposes. At the 2003
Frankfurt Auto Show he revealed his supercharged Ferrari 360 Modena by
Novitec Rosso and orders quickly appeared.
Since then, Hagedorn has really made his Ferraris true specialty models,
much more than simple tuner cars. And so here is the newest Novitec Rosso,
Hagedorn's improved Ferrari 430 Scuderia, the V8-powered berlinetta that
beats the lap time set at Ferrari's Fiorano test track by the overly
worshiped Ferrari Enzo .
How can the 2009 Ferrari 430 Scuderia by Novitec Rosso possibly improve on
a car already so impossibly super?
A look through the polycarbonate rear glass (so like a sneeze guard at the
buffet table) in the Ferrari 430 Scuderia's rear deck reveals all. Here are
two compact, belt-driven, Rotrex centrifugal Superchargers fed by two immense carbon-fiber air
boxes. Two front-mounted water-cooled Intercoolers (with double the
efficiency of the units that Novitec formerly specified in this sort of
application) help keep the intake air at the right temperature.This engine
conversion is referred to as the Novitec Race Bi-Compressor Engine kit, and
the full deal runs $89,999 through Novitec's full-service importer CEC.
Getting more out of the 2009 Ferrari 430 Scuderia evidently doesn't take
much, as each Rotrex screwgie hits its max Boost at 7.0 psi. It's all available in the
twitch of an ankle from low revs all the way to 8,350 rpm, where the horsepower count
surges from 503 hp to 708 hp. Meanwhile, the torque has been wrenched from
a measly 347 pound-feet up to 533 lb-ft at 6,250 rpm. Novitec has managed
to keep all the heat-inducing friction and combustion in control by
applying competition-level cooling upgrades.
The Ferrari-engineered 136E V8 engine (which also sits in the Alfa Romeo 8C
and assorted Maseratis) is otherwise stock. So is the Scuderia's six-speed
automated manual F1-Superfast2 gearbox; and its shift times remain wildly
quick going up or down (70 milliseconds in the Race, CT-Off and CST-Off
settings of the manettino mounted on the steering wheel).
Naturally, the ECU has been fiddled with by a local German fiddler to Boost the engine's self-confidence,
while the port fuel injectors are now higher-flow units, a fact that
further ruins the Scuderia's already sufficiently ruinous mpg rating. But
if you whine about this mpg thing at a barbecue for Novitec Rosso owners,
you're probably a waiter from the catering company.
While the technicians at Novitec's facility in Stetten have fiddled not one
bit with the wheel alignment, new stiffer springs all around slightly alter
the over-the-road feel of the five suspension settings afforded by the
manettino, and the overall ride height is 1.2 inches lower than that
specified by Maranello. The Ferrari MagneRide dampers are too complicated
to modify, so the settings are the same as before.
Overall, the Novitec's crisper dynamics can be clearly felt, especially
when the supercharged throttle delivers such enlightenment that we
repeatedly lunge past the braking point before corners. In such
circumstances, the Ferrari 430 Scuderia's standard carbon-ceramic brake
discs are much appreciated.
Even without any bodywork modifications, the 430 Scuderia's lower ride
height adds approximately 80 pounds of downforce at both front and rear
during high-speed dashes, while the stiffer springs and stickier tires
improve stability at ultrahigh speed. Once Novitec's taller final-drive
gear is installed, the top speed climbs to 216 mph from 199 mph."
