Pininfarina Ferrari 612 Scaglietti K Review

August 2006
Filed under: PININFARINA Car News | PININFARINA Headlines
Following on the success scored at its world debut at the last Villa d’Este Concours d’Elegance, the fantastic Ferrari 612 Scaglietti “K” by Pininfarina built for Peter S. Kalikow has finally been unveiled before the American public.

The customer specifically asked Pininfarina to design, engineer and produce a special version of the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti able to accentuate the lines of the vehicle, developing this according to a styling process able to highlight its elegance and exclusive nature.

Kalikow’s initial brief was very simple and clear: a vehicle with a new body with such subtle, hidden differences from the original as to be recognizable at first glance by only 10% of Ferrari connoisseurs. A brief that was gradually developed and refined so as to construct a vehicle tailored to the requirements of the customer who personally followed up development of the styling, selecting product contents and participating in choosing the materials and colours.

The vehicle that has been designed is a real “one-off” job which, at the same time, offers the owner everything he considers essential, comfortable and important in daily use.

An elegant but frills-free car reflecting Pininfarina’s unequalled style and tradition. Major contents include: the front grille, reminiscent of those of vehicles designed in the Fifties and Sixties; the liquid crystal and photovoltaic cell transparent roof (Isoclima technology); the large air outlet on the front bumper that stems from the volumes of the side; the fins that wrap round the rear window as in the company’s most beautiful designs; the rear lighting clusters that recall the Enzo.

The interior has been modified as desired by customer so as to incorporate all those minor amenities that make the driver feel he is immersed in an environment designed and constructed exclusively for him right down to the smallest details.

“We are particularly proud – comments Paolo Garella, Head of the Special Projects Division – that we have succeeded perfectly in interpreting the demands of a great collector”.

“His compliments and evident satisfaction – concluded Andrea Pininfarina, Chairman and CEO Pininfarina Group – are the best reward for our entire team who participated in the project”.
