The Ferrari Board, which met this week under the chairmanship of Luca di Montezemolo announced positive results for last year that were, in certain instances, said to be unprecedented in Ferrari’s history.
The car maker said its revenues exceeded the €2 billion threshold for the first time, reaching €2.251 billion (+17.3 per cent) with a record 7,195 cars delivered to the dealership network, an increase of 9.5 per cent on the previous year’s figure.
The personalisation catalogue made an extremely significant contribution with 100 per cent of all cars featuring bespoke options. In 2011 the range was further extended with the exclusive new Tailor-Made programme.
di Montezemolo said: “We can only be satisfied with these results. They were achieved against an economic backdrop that remains challenging, particularly in Europe. They are the fruit of heavy investment and a culture of innovation that covers all areas of the business.
“Our international expansion continues and Ferrari today has a network covering 58 nations. We now have a complete range of models which will be joined in a few days time at the Geneva Show by a new 12-cylinder. A revolutionary new car that delivers extreme performance and unprecedented power output.”
Ferrari achieved record sales in America in 2011 with 1,958 cars delivered, up eight per cent on 2010.
