Ferrari S.p.A.’s Board of Directors along with their Chairman Luca di Montezemolo announced that the company has experienced significant growth year-to-date despite their reduced number of vehicle deliveries.
Ferrari sales reached 1,348.6-million Euros last June 30, with trading revenues increasing to 185-million. Net income also saw around a 10-percent increase to 127.6-million Euros. These numbers are record highs in Ferrari history, persisting through only 3,631 homologated shipments, 3.6-percent less than the same period last year. However, deliveries towards the end of 2014 will see a 5-percent increase.
Great Britain continues to lead European sales for the brand, with sales totalling 408 cars, though, while impressive, was seven units less than the first half of 2013. Additionally, Italy sales rose positively to 13 percent after wavering for years, with 131 vehicles sold.
Sales in Japan also rose 13 percent year-to-date totalling 195 dispatches, while Australia saw 56 deliveries equating to a growth of 7.7 percent. Hongkong and People’s Republic of China, meanwhile, saw sales fall down to 285 units during the year’s first half compared to the 344 last year.
Finally, 1,062 Ferraris were purchased in the USA, marking the company’s 60th sale anniversary in the country with a 13 percent increase in first half numbers.
“It gives all of us here at Ferrari a sense of great satisfaction to continue to achieve record financial results, particularly given that production was limited. I am sure that in a few months’ time, we will be marking the end of a truly extraordinary and unprecedented year. Sales will also increase by several percentage points to avoid excessively long waiting lists,” declared Luca di Montezemolo, adding: “To celebrate Ferrari’s 60th year in the USA, we have developed a special car of which just 10 examples will be built, in addition to planning a major event in Los Angeles to bring together all our American clients and collectors, and a charity initiative.”
