Ferrari's Italian sports cars are just as popular as before the outbreak of the corona crisis.

In the second quarter of this year, 2,685 units rolled out of the Maranello factory.

That is almost twice as much as in the same period last year, but also more than in the comparable months in 2019.

In April, May and June last year, when the corona crisis erupted in full force and production came to a complete standstill for some time, 1,296 Ferraris were sold.

"This year it was 93.3 percent more," the company said in a statement.

Turnover amounted to just over a billion euros, also almost double last year and 5.2 percent more than in the second quarter of 2019. A profit of 206 million euros was made on the sale of the cars and parts.

The iconic brand will celebrate its 75th anniversary next year.
