Kiwis order up big for the new Ferrari California

The 2008 Australian Motor Show was a sales success for Ferrari, with the legendary Italian supercar company now holding nearly 200 orders for the new Ferrari California.

“The 2008 Australian International Motor Show has exceeded all our sales expectations,” says Neville Crichton, from New Zealand Ferrari importer, EAI. “We were already in a strong position prior to the show, but the launch of the new California, combined with a display of the full Ferrari range on our motor show stand, has enabled us to lift our sales beyond our hopes even before the economic crisis.”

Ferrari opened the show with 150 orders for the new California from Australia and New Zealand and after a week of the show, that figure is now approaching 200, from both sales at the show and demand across Australia and New Zealand following its Sydney debut. This equates to an 18 month waiting list for a car which will not have its first Australian/NZ delivery until mid-2009.
