The company has taken in a total revenue of 488 million euro during the second quarter of the financial year too, delivering 1615 vehicles to international dealers – up by 2.6 percent compared to the same period last year . The increase in sales is said to have been helped by the introduction of the 458 Italia and the 599 GTO.
