Global economic meltdown? Nonsense.
In 2012 Ferrari posted records results in its best ever trading period in the company's 66-year history.
A total of 7,318 cars were sold in 2012, while revenues of 2.433 billion euro (up 8 per cent) were recorded.
Ferrari enjoyed record sales in the USA in 2012 with deliveries there exceeding the 2,000-car mark for the first time (2,058).
Europe performed very impressively with deliveries in Great Britain up by 20.4 per cent (673 cars), and by 17.4 per cent in Switzerland (357). Germany (750 cars, +8.2 per cent) confirmed its position as Ferrari's most important market in Europe, while other main Countries in the area ended the year in line with 2011.
Results from Italy couldn't have been more different: despite performing better than the average in a sector that registered a 60 per cent drop in sales in 2012, Ferrari ended the year with 318 cars delivered to dealerships, a 46 per cent decrease on the 2011 figure.
Greater China (People's Republic of China, Hong Kong and Taiwan) retained its position as the second largest market with a record 784 cars delivered.
