Ferraris fly off the forecourts

Marion Dakers
BRITISH appetite for the world’s most expensive cars has helped the country overtake Germany as Ferrari’s biggest market in Europe.

Ferrari delivered 415 cars to UK dealerships in the first six months of the year, up six per cent and ahead of Germany’s 388 sales. In the firm’s recession-hit homeland, sales dwindled. Just 116 cars were sent to Italian showrooms. Global demand for Ferraris rose through the downturn, with record-breaking sales in every year since 2010.
