Ferrari sold a record-breaking 13,221 cars worldwide during 2022, eclipsing its previous record and showing demand for ultra-luxury sport cars is greater than ever.

    The 2022 sales result is 18.5 per cent stronger than the previous year. It also comes as luxury brands such as Lamborghini, Bentley and Rolls-Royce announce record sales for 2022.

    The Maranello-based company also achieved a record net profit of €939 million ($A1.45 billion), which is up from the €833 million ($A1.28 billion) it made last year.

    The Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region was the biggest for Ferrari in 2022 with 5958 vehicles delivered. This is up by 8.0 per cent from 2021.

    The next biggest region was the Americas with 3447 vehicles delivered, up by 22 per cent from last year.

    Mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan was the third top-selling region with 1552 vehicles delivered, up 73 per cent from last year, followed by the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region with 2264 vehicles delivered, up 17 per cent from 2021.

    In Australia Ferrari sold a total of 203 vehicles last year. The company doesn’t list the sales breakdown of each model in VFACTS industry sales data, and instead lumps it together in a listing called Ferrari Coupe/Convertible.

    The Ferrari model lineup for 2022 included nine internal-combustion engine (ICE) vehicles and three hybrid models. It claims the shipment split was 78 per cent and 22 per cent, respectively.

    Ferrari notes the increase in shipments last year was driven by the Portofino M and the SF90, as well as the 296 GTB and 812 Competizione.

    Deliveries of the Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2 were lower compared to last year and ended in the first quarter of 2022. The first few deliveries of the Daytona SP3 started in the fourth quarter of last year.

    Ferrari estimates that 2023 could be even better than last year. It expects to have a net revenue of €5.7 billion ($A8.79 billion), which is up from the €5.1 billion ($A7.86 billion) net revenue it made last year.

    The company also plans to increase the prices of its vehicles to offset current cost inflation.

    This year Ferrari plans to begin deliveries of its Purosangue four-door crossover, which received huge interest when it was revealed.

    It’s powered by a naturally-aspirated dry sump 6.5-litre V12 engine with a 65-degree separation between the banks. It produces 533kW of power and 716Nm of torque.

    Thanks partially to the lack of forced induction, the V12 revs all the way up to 8250rpm. The V12 drives all four wheels through an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

    Overseas reports have speculated there could be a successor to the 812 grand tourer that may be revealed late in 2023.
