Modena, Italy – Ferrari marked its best year ever in China, selling close to 300 vehicles in 2010. The number marks an increase of almost 50 per cent over sales in 2009.

When sales figures for Hong Kong and Taiwan are added, China is now one of the top five international markets for the Italian automaker, which opened its official dealership network there six years ago.

Ferrari currently has ten dealerships in China and will open more in the next few months. During 2011, it will also hold the first Asian championship in the Ferrari Challenge single-make racing series.
