For those that follow 612 prices this auction price at RM Shift Monterey which significantly doesn't include a 15% buyer's premium which would add another $44,250 to the price may be the highest auction price for a 2005 612 manual of late. This car was a less than 6000 mile example wearing Azzurro California with a dark blue interior. This car belonged to a friend and was very well taken care of. For those of us who own a F1 612 we may not see this kind of a price anytime soon but do you really think a six speed should carry a 100% premium or more? Having driven my 2005 F1 612 some 4500 since purchasing it I can honestly say that I really enjoy driving the car long distance with the paddles and in sport mode. They say that all ships rise with the tide. If you have been on the fence it may be time to find a 612 that you can drive and enjoy! Stay well!
