Ferrari says it delivered 2 332 new vehicles in the second quarter of 2017, taking total sales for the first half of the year to 4 335 units.
This second quarter result represents a year-on-year improvement of 118 units or 5,3%, largely driven by a 36% increase in sales of V12 models. The Italian marque says sales of V8 models were “substantially in line with the prior year”.
The strong 12-cylinder performance was again led by the GTC4Lusso and LaFerrari Aperta, partially offset by the phasing out of the F12berlinetta and the F12tdf, with the latter “finishing its limited series run”. The 812 Superfast has yet to officially arrive on the market (but we already know how many are coming to South Africa), but Ferrari says it already has a waiting list “beyond 2018”.
In total, the Maranello brand plans to ship 8 400 vehicles in 2017, with a net revenue target of €3,3-billion.
A quick glance at the Naamsa statistics for the first half of 2017 (and the application of a little maths) reveals that Ferrari registered 41 units in South Africa in this time, including 17 units of the 488 Spider, 10 California models, 11 units of the 488 GTB, two units of the F12 and one example of the GTC4Lusso.
