Autocar has driven the new Ferrari 612 Scaglietti - and we can reveal that Ferrari's four-seater breaks new ground for the marque, offering refinement and comfort previously unafforded by the prancing horse.

European editor Peter Robinson was the first journalist in the world to drive the new V12-powered 2+2, and in this week's magazine he writes that 'the 612 doesn't just represent a transformation in packaging but also in personality.'

'No Ferrari has ever been this easy going or this comfortable' he goes on. 'It feels soft, pliable, soothing - yet at the same time controlled.... And fear not, because it's also quick. Very quick.'
