The Italian based automaker Ferrari has recently announced record sales and profits for the first nine months of this year.
According to the car manufacturer, the company has managed to deliver 5,267 cars in the first nine months of 2012, six percent more than the same period of last year, with trading profits jumping to 185 million GBP, 9.6 percent more than the first nine months of 2011. The total revenues are standing at 1.41bn GBP, a 10 percent increase.
“These results confirm Ferrari’s excellent performance in practically all of the 60 nations in which it is present despite the continuing economic climate. Once again the exception is Italy where we have witnessed a drop partly due to the economic crisis, but also to a hostile environment for luxury goods which have long been, and continue to be, an important resource for the country”, said Luca di Montezemolo.
The U.S. is still the Maranello based automaker’s largest market, where sales hit 1,354 units for the first nine months, with China becoming the second market with 566 units sold, followed by Germany with 534 unit and by the UK with 504 units, while in Italy, sales are down 49 percent to just 238 units.
