CAR NEWS, FERRARI — BY CHRIS ON AUGUST 30, 2012 AT 8:58 PM — 2 COMMENTS
Ferrari is on its way to report all-time sales and profit highs this year. Demand for the Italian sports cars is on the rise despite the financial crisis which plagues large parts of Europe, economic uncertainties in the United States and the cooling down of the Chinese economy.
CEO of Ferrari, Luca di Montezemolo told Automotive News that the Prancing Horse predicts record sales: “From the latest data I’ve seen, we are on track to make this year another record year.”
The Maranello based carmaker posted last year records sales with 7,195 delivered cars. The first six months of 2012 Ferrari sales went up 7 percent to 3,664 compared with the first half of previous year, from which a quarter went to the US. Sales of the V12 powered models surged by 66 percent.
