More Ferraris Sold In The Uk Than Anywhere Else In Europe

Recommended Posts

More Ferraris are being sold in the UK than anywhere else in Europe, the luxury car manufacturer has confirmed.

Despite rising prices in 2013 as Ferrari cut production, record numbers of the tailor-made vehicles, costing a minimum of £151,000 – almost six times the national average salary – were sold in Britain last year.

Ferrari said 677 cars were delivered to the UK in 2013 as the country overtook Germany as its leading European market. The largest market globally remains the US where just over 2,000 cars were delivered.

The Italian manufacturer decided in 2012 to cap global production at 7,000 cars a year, to maintain the exclusivity of its brand and drive up prices rather than sell more Ferraris to the growing customer base of the global super-rich.

All in it together and when London is the play centre for the global rich of course they are going to want a Ferrari.

I thought about buying one to stick in a garage as an investment.... but some Ferraris devalue quicker than a Lada so knowing the right model to buy is difficult. It is a kind of F.I.A.T. currency after all.

It does make sense that they sell well in the UK, US, China and the Middle East.

People love garish, vulgar and expensive turds rolled in glitter.

They used to be something fantastic. Now they make me belch (and I was born in Italy)

There's something pretty tragic about a racing car capable of 0-60 in 4 seconds and 200mph pootling around the gridlocked streets of Mayfair, the chassis scraping on the speed bumps every 30 yards.

LOL yes.It's quite amusing to cycle past Ferrari drivers stuck in traffic on Berkeley Street in Mayfair of an evening....

Granted some of these are driven by arab sheiks, but a lot are probably fur coat and no-knickers banker or footballer types. The funny thing is a lot of the genuinely rich (high net worth) probably don't drive them, they will be in 15 year old volvos or, if a bit flashier, a Bristol or something.

Also tragic that people with that type of money can't find a better place to live than London.

More feraris, more parasites with bad and stupid taste (cant drive a ferrari in London can you)... This is a symptom of how the UK is organised, that is organised to allow the worlds parasite, thieving, banking, oligarch money laundering class to run free range and rough shod over the entire population. Thanks a lot to the last 3 iterations of government starting with 'greed is good' maggie thatcher followed by tory caretaker Blair and chums and now we are back to Thatchers children in charge
