    Hi All,
    I'm from Brittany (west of France) and live in Paris area.
    After more or less 2 years of having an interested look on 456 and 612 markets, I found a lovely black & red MY2008 612 OTO in Prague (Czech Republic).
    First life in Moscow (provided new by Zao Maranello/Moscow) during its 8 first years, before beeing imported in Prague for 2 years.
    26000Km, full serviced at official dealers (8 services in Moscow, 2 in Prague).

    I found it last june, and came back to Paris by road (approx. 1100Km): what an emotional day! :)
    Since then, it's a pleasure everytime I take it, specially with the sound of the sport exhaust.
    This year, we made a road trip to the "Chateaux de la Loire" with my wife and my 2 kids. I hope next year the trip will be in Italy, back to Maranello!

    Dixit My-Ferrari, here are the specs and options:
    EXTC - External Colors - Nero Daytona WB 508
    HGT2 - HGT2 Package
    LOGO - Scuderia Ferrari Shields
    MIR3 - Electrochromic Rearview Mirror

    PAR2 - Front and Rear Parking Sensors

    Frankly, I am not fond of red interiors, having owned two 612s with cuoio interiors, but your spec is stunning. Well done! Enjoy!

    Great looking OTO with just the right amount of Bordeaux in the interior.

    Congrats and I wish you good luck with it.

    I hope you are a little on the outer side of Paris. The toughest rotary (roundabout) I ever had to navigate was in Paris during morning rush hour! :)

    Thank you all for your replies.

    @tazandjan : depending on the light, the interior could vary from flashy red to Bordeaux. The exact color name is Rosso FX.
    @Nospinzone :I have never been in Paris with the 612. Road traffic is to high, it's not a pleasant time for the clutch!!! I live 10km (6mi) from Paris, I prefer to go to the opposite side (Orleans, Le Mans, ...), where you can really drive and find beautiful landscapes and architectures.
    And it is true that due to the proximity of Paris, I cannot take it at anytime: I must take in consideration the road traffic.

    I presume that the roundabout you're talking about was "Charles de Gaulle - Etoile", at the top of the Champs-Elysees, around the "Arc de Triomphe". According to me, it is the worst rounadbout we have (a common roundabout for a parisian guy, a horrible one for everyone else!!!).
    Paris could be great with a Ferrari....if you want to take some beautiful photos of your car. Except for this case, forget it!!! ;)

    As best as I can tell it was the roundabout at Porte Dauphine. We had checked out of the St. James Hotel and headed for CDG. It wasn't only the mass of cars, but also the scooters. My wife was having heart palpitations for the people on the scooters. I told her not to worry, they knew what they were doing.

    No, it wasn't at the Arc de Triomphe. As a Boston driver, I can handle that! :D

    That is a beautiful automobile. The red leather really looks good with the black exterior. Congratulations and welcome to the OTO club.

    They changed all the colors on me around the 2006-2010 timeframe, so I do not know them like I do the ones from the 90s and early 2000s.

    I'm such a fan of the ball polished monolithic wheels. Both on the 599 and the 612, they should have made them standard!

    @Titobandito : since November, did you have some new informations about the first owner of your OTO? Is it really LDM?
    Anyway, mine is really close to yours: VIN #160596. :)
    In my-Ferrari.com, it is written that the factory warranty started on 11/15/2008. And yours?

    I'm quite in the same case: first page of my Service Book is blank concerning the first owner. Ferrari Moscow had confirmed to me all the services they had done on it, but that's all I could obtain... According to registration informations I have, the first owner could be the dealer, from 2009 to 2010, but this sounds wrong regarding the fact that it is an OTO (customer specific).
    Maybe the reason is elsewhere and simplier: first owner was Vladimir P., and he didn't want to have his name on the service book. :D

    Many 612s were special ordered (only way to get one) and then the order was cancelled during the unpleasantness of 2008/2009.

    You are right. Could be an explanation.

    I haven't had time to really dig into the story recently, as I have been living out of a suitcase with work travel. I will get back to it now that things are slowing down again for work. I certainly plan to explore it further. I've got some suggested contacts from here and through my dealer, including some potential people in Ferrari, so I'm hopeful I can get more information.

    My car has a warranty start date of 22-02-2019.

    My owner's section lists Ferrari SpA as the owner. The importer is the part that is weird, as it lists *marketing* in place of a dealer.

    It would be nice to have Putin's car. lol. I imagine the downside would be the American CIA monitoring everything you do. It would be good if you could somehow turn that into free service work. Mentioning you hid secret information micro printed on the cam belts, so they go in and swap them, for example. lol.

    Sorry. I mean 2009 for the date. I'm still writing 2019 on things. I'm either a year behind or a decade ahead. :)
