Alfardan Sports Motors, Maserati’s exclusive importer in Qatar, has announced a 90% increase in Maserati sales for the period from January till October 2014 in comparison to the same period in 2013. The most successful model of the first half is the new Maserati Ghibli, which was launched earlier in the year and received a very warm welcome by customers wanting to realize their dream of owning a Maserati.

Maserati’s flagship, the Quattroporte, grew by a further 79 percent following its introduction in 2013, and more growth is expected after the introduction of a further engine variant, a 330 hp V6, in the third quarter of this year. Alfardan Sports Motors General Manager, Charly Dagher, said, “The rise in sales, in comparison to the same period as last year, is a true indicator of the increase in demand for excellence as well as a thriving luxury automobile market, confirming Alfardan Sports Motors leading position in the market.”

Overall, the Italian luxury car manufacturer Maserati continues its global expansion strategy and reports that sales in the Middle East and Africa region have increased by 152 percent in the first half of 2014 compared to last year’s result of the same period. In fact, the result of the first six months of 2014 exceeds the sales of 2013 overall. Globally, Maserati aims to achieve an annual sales volume of 50,000 units over the coming years, primarily through new products and entering new markets.

Alfardan Sports Motors is dedicated to providing customers with excellence in customer service as well as consistently providing the market with top of the range motors to satisfy the constantly increasing demand.Alfardan Sports Motors announces 3 [].jpg
