To sell only 63 new cars and yet land on the Ward's Dealer 500 list has never happened. Until now.
The list, with rankings based on total revenues, now includes the Ferrari-Maserati dealership in Penske Automotive Group's luxury-brand mall in Scottsdale, AZ. Prices run in the six figures for ultra-luxury cars such as Ferraris, spurring the Phoenix-area dealership to total revenues of more than $45 million.
It also sells new Lotus cars, plus used Bentleys, Rolls Royces and Aston-Martins.
Sales Manager Chad Morgan scours the nation for pre-owned “supercars.” The dealership delivered 410 used units in 2010.
It ranks No.476 on the Ward's Dealer 500.
Also on the list are 34 BMW and 31 Mercedes-Benz stores, all of which sold fewer than 1,000 new units last year, but at high enough luxury-car price points to make the cut.
