Ferrari’s (NYSE:RACE) New ‘Mystery Model’ Due for Unavailing Mid-September
The word in the automotive world is that Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) is set to unveil a new model at its HQ in Maranello, Italy on 17 September.
The new model is code-named the F176 and thought to be based on the 812 Superfast.
This indicated that it will be a special edition 1-off model developed by Ferrari’s Special Projects coach-building service, or possibly a Limited-Edition model like the J50 unveiled in Y 2016 to mark 50 years of Ferrari sales in Japan.
The 812 Superfast’s predecessor, the F12 Berlinetta, also birthed a Limited-Edition model in Y 2016: the F60 America built to celebrate 60 years of Ferrari sales in the United States.

On the F1 front
The Formula One Group’s revenue fell in Q-2 of Y 2018 compared to the previous year, and once again the 10 Teams sees a fall in their income as a result.
Overall revenue for the F1 Group fell 5% in Q-2 compared with the same frame last year, from $616-M to $588-M.
The percentage shared by the 10 Teams fell 7% from $330-M to $307-M. F1’s operating income was down 69% from $45-M to $14-M.
There was no change in the number of races held in the Quarter, with both Ys 2017 and 2018 featuring 7 Grands Prix.
Liberty Media says that a Key reason for the revenue decliner is that last year the Quarter’s share of broadcasting fees represented a 7/20 share of the annual total, while this year, with an extra race, it is 7/21.
