This is a complete Ferrari 612 Scaglietti V12, it’s listed as being a running engine from a car with 40,637 kms on the odometer (which works out to approximately 25,250 miles) and it’s all yours for the not insignificant sum of $21,911 USD.
The Ferrari 612 Scaglietti was released in 2004 and sold until 2011, the car is a grand tourer with comfortable seating for four adults, a reasonable amount of room for luggage, and styling influenced by the one-off 1954 Ferrari 375 MM that Roberto Rossellini had built for his wife, Ingrid Bergman.
The 612 was named for Carrozzeria Scaglietti, one of Ferrari’s most prolific coachbuilders in the 1950s and 1960s. The car was designed by Ken Okuyama at Pininfarina, Okuyama is an influential Japanese industrial designer who also designed the Enzo Ferrari and a slew of other projects including trains, tractors, and road cars.

The V12 fitted to the 612 Scaglietti has a displacement of 5,748cc (or 350.8 cu. in.), it’s a 65° V12 with a bore x stroke of 3.50 x 3.03 in., a cylinder displacement of 29.2 cu. in., a compression ratio of 11.2:1, and 533 hp at 7,250 rpm, with 434 ft lbs at 5,250 rpm.
This engine was originally mated to either a manual or semi-automatic 6-speed gearbox and the car could reach 199 mph with a 0 to 62 mph time of 4 seconds – not bad numbers for a car with a kerb weight of 4,134 lbs that can carry four adults with luggage.
It’s most likely that the engine you see here will be bought by a current Ferrari 612 Scaglietti owner who needs a new engine or by a garage that wants to strip it for parts. That said, there are a few people out there with the technical chops to drop Ferrari engines into unlikely donor cars, so you never know where it might end up.
