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.'

    First Drive
    16 October 2017

  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
