Boasting their 2011 record sales, Ferrari boss Luca di Montezemolo announced debut of a new and ‘extreme’ V12 model at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.
He didn’t make it clear if this extreme model is the Enzo replacement we’ve been waiting for, or the 599 replacement, or just a completely new model. He just says:
We now have a complete range of models which will be joined in a few days time at the Geneva Show by a new 12-cylinder. A revolutionary new car that delivers extreme performance and unprecedented power output.
Just knowing Ferrari has come up with a new model, and it’s powered by a massive V12, is heartwarming. Ferrari’s expansion strategy proved a success, as they set a record last year delivering 7,195 cars worldwide. Luca continues:
We can only be satisfied with these results,” declared Chairman Luca di Montezemolo. “They were achieved against an economic backdrop that remains challenging, particularly in Europe. They are the fruit of heavy investment and a culture of innovation that covers all areas of the business. Our international expansion continues and Ferrari today has a network covering 58 nations.
Here’s an overview of Ferrari’s 2011 results:
