Ferrari surges to record profits following boost in sales

Ferrari has posted record second-quarter profits after a 21 per cent increase in sales compared with the same period in 2021.

The Italian manufacturer shifted 3,455 vehicles – an increase of 770 vehicles – between April and June, taking its revenues up by 25 per cent to €1.291bn (£1.08bn). Net profit rose by 22 per cent to €251m (£210m).

It follows on from similar record-breaking months for firms such as Lamborghini and Bentley, which have all seen profits soar despite continued supply chain disruption.

“Ferrari continues a phase of strong growth, with quarterly record results in terms of revenues, EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) and EBIT (earnings before interest and taxes),” said Benedetto Vigna, chief executive officer of Ferrari.

He added: “The quality of the first six months and the robustness of our business allows us to revise upward the 2022 guidance on all metrics.”

A rise in shipments was driven by the newly introduced Portofino M, as well as the F8 Tributo and Spider. Ferrari also commenced deliveries of its new 296 GTB. Cars like the Monza SP1 and SP2 reached the end of their limited run, too. It’s likely that this upward trajectory will only be helped by the introduction of the firm’s first SUV – which is expected to be called Purosangue – later on this year.
