Ferrari profits soar thanks to three of its top models

Ferrari profits and sales soar

Ferrari has recorded a significant increase in both profits and sales during the second quarter of 2010, thanks to the Ferrari California and Ferrari 458, as well as demand for the new Ferrari 599 GTO.

Over the first six months, Ferrari recorded revenues of 903 million Euros (compared to 891 in the same period of 2009). A total of 3,200 cars were delivered to dealers, 2% more than in the same period of 2009.

As far as the markets are concerned, the U.S.A. has shown first good signs of recovery, with Ferrari seeing 10% growth. China has continued to grow at over 20%, a figure that is likely to rise further still in coming months.

Even Ferrari’s social networking has seen positive growth, with the official Ferrari Group on Facebook recently registering over a million fans.
