Who says coming to a major auto show doesn’t sell cars? Not us, and definitely not Ferrari and Lamborghini since both Italian automakers have announced that the models they brought to the 2011 Geneva Motor Show have sold out for 2011. That’s right, the recently launched Ferrari FF and the newly launched - as in last week - Lamborghini Aventador are both sold out for 2011. While we are not at all surprised that people scooped up the Aventador the second they could, we are shocked that something as unappealing as the FF could succeed at becoming sold out, especially considering the negative reaction people had after it launched.
Ferrari CEO’s, Luca di Montezemolo, announced at the Geneva Motor Show that "2011 is announcing to be a positive year" and that “we have already sold all 800 Ferrari FFs planned to be produced in 2011. We have registered impressive reaction on markets like Unites States, Emirates and Russia, countries were our presence was very slow due to the CO2 emission standards."
At the same time, Lamborghini boss, Stephan Winkelmann, told the media "we already sold more than 12 months of production," meaning a total of about 700 units. Just asa reminder, the Aventador is priced at $379.700.
