Ferrari employees can now buy themselves a whole load more Ferrari tat
Despite its woes on the F1 track, 2013 was a good year for Ferrari. Despite deliberately cutting production, the company saw revenues increase by five per cent, with profits rising by over eight per cent.
To say ‘grazie' to its diligent, espresso-quaffing workforce, Ferrari this week announced each of its 3000-odd employees would receive a 4,096 Euro bonus, the highest ever awarded in the company's history.
That's equivalent to about £3,400. Which means each and every Ferrari employee could buy 40 Cavallino Ramparte ties from the Ferrari store.
Or 32 ‘F1 Pad Line' pendant charms.
Or 14 ‘Gran Turismo' hatboxes.
