Ferrari’s biggest market is the UK in first half of 2013 image

The Italian based automaker Ferrari has recently posted its first half of 2013 sales, announcing that its biggest market for this time period is the United Kingdom.

According to the car manufacturer, Ferrari’s sales in the UK are up six percent compared to the same time period of 2012. A total of 415 cars were delivered in the first half of 2013 in the United Kingdom, a market which is closely followed by Germany, with 388 units. The Middle East and Japan have “bought” 264 and 172 cars respectively but the bad news is coming from Italy and Spain, where the market continues to fall.

“Once again in the first six months of 2013, Ferrari has recorded excellent results. Two months ago, we took a strategic decision the effects of which will be felt more clearly over the next six months. However, that move is already beginning to make its mark”, said Luca di Montezemolo, the Ferrari chairman.

Ferrari has recorded total global sales so far this year of 3,767 units, posting a net profit of 1,220 million euros. This is apparently the best ever profit the carmaker has made. The increase in sales is expected to maintain throughout the year.
