Income of € 400 million
Ferrari for the first surpassed the barrier of 8,000 units sold in 2016. In total, 8,014 sports out of the Maranello factory in 2016, a growth of 4.6 percent (350 more cars) compared to the previous year. “It was a good year for us.
We are pleased with the progress we have made, “said Ferrari CEO Sergio Marchionne.
The V8-powered cars were responsible for the increase in sales (5 percent), led by the excellent performance of the 488 GTB and 488 Spider, while the V12 grew 4 percent, which contributed to the GTC4 Lusso, LaFerrari Aperta and F12tdf.
The EMEA market (Europe, Middle East and Africa) continues to be the most popular with 3610 units, up 8 percent, followed by the Americas with 2687 units (2 percent increase).
China welcomed 619 units (1 percent increase), with the remainder (1,098 units) staying by Asia, which grew 3 percent. From 290 million euros in 2015, Ferrari made net profits of 400 million euros last year, which represents a growth of 38 percent.
By 2017, the goal is to exceed 8,400 units, but without losing the DNA of the Italian brand. “We continue to be pressured to produce an SUV, but I find it difficult to see a Ferrari model that does not have the dynamics that characterize us.
We must be disciplined not to degrade the brand, “promised Marchionne.
