One day after chairman Luca di Montezemolo announced his decision to step down, Ferrari has posted record trading results for the first half of 2014.
The company also confirmed that it will unveil a new limited-edition car in Los Angeles next month, at a special event that is expected to be di Montezemolo's public swansong.
Di Montezemolo said: "To celebrate Ferrari’s 60th year in the USA, we have developed a special car of which just ten examples will be built".
Entitled 'Race Through The Decades: 1954-2014', the event on Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles on 12 October will celebrate 60 years since Luigi Chinetti set up the USA's first Ferrari dealership.
As well as the world premiere of the new car, the celebration will feature a public display of 60 of the most spectacular Ferraris ever assembled and a parade through Beverly Hills.
In the first six months of the year, the Maranello company's revenues were up 14.5 per cent to 1348.6m euros, with net profit improved by 9.8 per cent to 127.6 million euros.
