    Do you think they could turbo the 612 like they do the 360? that would be awsome, overall not bad looking though.

    wow, thats one hott car!!!! i love it. a lot of f chatters dont like the 612, and i can see why, its not something you would hang on your wall, i have seen some on the street and they are not as head turning and the v8 cars(430,360,etc) but what i like about the 612 is that i think it is the only ferrari that knows what it is, its not trying to get attention, it does not need attention. i think the 612 was made for old money, people that have had a ferrari most of their life, and who want to keep a low profile, the 612 knows that it is, a ferrari and does not need to show skin to know that shes hott, the 612 is a car with a high self esteem. look at who owns the 430/360, sports players, paris hilton, alot of celebs, etc, basically people that want and need attention, now who owns the 612 or the other 2+2, jean todt, nick cage had a 456, the sulten, people who do not need to show off, just look at pics of monoco and you will see a lot of 612, if you dont like the 612, its because it was not ment for you.

    absolutely fabulous transformation, all it needs now is to be dropped a bit more and no side badges!

    Looks a lot better & smaller in black, I would paint the side scallops a different color though, they look better in 2 tone

    That looks nice, which is something that never really come up in my mind when talkin about a 612. Bounded by the need to accomodate 4 people and their luggage comfortably, the 612 never looked quite right, but this, this actually looks very good, not drop dead gorgeous but very classy indeed. Quite surprised that with so little change, the car can look so different, or may be it's just the angle of the photo, never know!

    Now this 612 is looking good. I don't know what it is, maybe it's the color or the fact that the design is finally starting to grow on me. Either way, this car looks good.

    Black was always recommended for plus size women as visually it "slims" down their look.
    Looks like it works on cars too, since I really don't like 612 in Silver.

    They did a great job with it, you can buy it without the black tail lights which I would do since personally it's not my taste. Other then that I think it's a huge improvement over the regular 612.

    GOOD GOD! Can anyone say TRANSFORMATION!

    But the 612 always, always looks better outside in real light. The rims and lowered height make an enormous difference

    Bravo Novitec! Although I wouldn't black out the taillights.



    Many thanks for sharing,

    In general, the 612 is not nearly as photogenic as the 575, 456 or 355.

    But in outdoor shots with real light and some perspective it takes on an entirely different aura and presence.

    The lines and curves jump out as well as the overall symmetry of the shape.

    If you notice, this trend towards 3-D shapes began with the 360 and has continued in every model since. When I first saw the 360 it looked like a spaceship or something equally strange-- all those curves and swoops. It looked like a different car from almost every angle. But when I saw a few up-close shots of an open-door, or a few outdoor shots next to other cars, the lines became clear, the lines and the overall theme and presence of the car.

    By comparison the Maranello and earlier models were much more two-dimensional and therefore camera-friendly, like Astons and Lambos, for example, although Lambos mission and execution are very different.

    If you view the 612 from a different angle and overall perspective you'll see the lines.

    This Novitec rendition captures the lines better than almost every other shot I've seen. The black color also highlights the multiplicity and smooth integration of curves, arches and planes.

    I, too, did not care for it at first, especially the front grill and headlight combination but when you see the entire car from a distance, outdoors, it all comes together.


    Forza,


    Cavallini

    I totally agree with u the tail lights look´s like u u were "al pacino" but with not very good taste, with all my respects here in spain u put that kind of smoked tail lights to a ford fiesta. Horrible, no taste at all, of course in my opinion.
