Ferrari has cancelled all its European dealers' contracts due to EU legislation
13 August 2008

Ferrari has confirmed that, as a result of industry-wide EU regulation changes due to take place in 2010, it has cancelled the contracts of all its European dealers in order to renew them in line with the new rules.

Other sources had reported that Ferrari was planning to cut a large portion of its European dealership network, but the company denies that this is the case, although it can make no guarantee that all of its current dealerships will get new contracts. The company has also announced that it intends to create a new sales network for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Despite the slowing global economy, Ferrari’s sales are still healthy. It sold 6,465 cars globally in 2007, a 14 per cent increase on 2006, and numbers are expected to rise again for 2008.

Driven this week

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
