Ferrari announced that they got a record turnover in the first quarter of 2008. Next to this good news, little sister Maserati is doing amazing business aswell. Despite the strong Euro which should make the US market buy less, Ferrari and Maserati managed to raise their turnover with 4%. They have to thank this to the V12 Ferrari’s and the V8 Maserati’s. The 612 Scaglietti and 599 GTB Fiorano are the toppers. Ferrari’s profit in 2007 is 59 million euro, which is twice as much as the 2006 model-year!
At Maserati are the good results for the GranTurismo no surprise. Maserati delivered 2,234 pieces of it’s new exotic car. For the first time in 17 years Maserati can say they made profit out of their business, with winning 10 million euro in 2007.
This news means that the auto industry in Italy is going very well, because we all know Lamborghini is a success for years now! Let’s hope this trend goes on in the automotive world.
