After 45 years of selling sports cars in the Asia-Pacific region, Ferrari is celebrating its 1000th vehicle delivery there in the city of Hong Kong.
With 1700 cars delivered in 2008, the U.S. retains the lion’s share of Ferrari sales, which totaled 6587 vehicles last year. In the Asia-Pacific region, Japan is the automaker’s top market as 433 cars were delivered in 2008. In China, sales increased 20% last year to 212 units. We’re guessing Ferrari’s goals for 2009 will be similar to those of Lamborghini: stay in the black.
The vehicle in question is a 612 Scaglietti “One-to-One” that was commissioned by owner Didier Li and delivered today on a Chinese ship in Victoria Harbour.
It may have taken Ferrari more than four decades to deliver 1000 vehicles to Hong Kong, but with the 2010 Ferrari California on the way, we’re sure it won’t take long to reach 2000.
