The firm's board of directors, chaired by Luca di Montezemolo, met yesterday to review the balance sheet for the financial year ended 31st December 2007.
Ferrari sales have been up in most regions and in Britain they increased by 8.2 per cent.
The company’s turnover increased from £1,076million in 2006 to £1,240million last year – a jump of 15.3 per cent.
Ferrari said the results were ‘unprecedented even in our long and successful history’.
Trading profit of £197million represented a 45.4 per cent increase on the previous year’s figure.
A total of 6,465 road cars (i.e. non-track use cars) were delivered, an increase of 14 per cent on 2006.
The company said in a statement: ‘We have been receiving very positive signals from all of our markets too. In fact, we recorded unprecedented levels of growth in the emerging markets.
‘Sales to the Asia-Pacific region rose by 47.2% on last year’s figure while the Middle East was up by 32.3%. ‘
'The trend was positive too, however, on more traditional markets such as the United States (+7.7%), Great Britain (+8.2%) and Germany (+5.9%).’
The company allocated a total of £222million for ‘investments and research and development’ that didn’t include Formula 1.
