Revenues from Cars and spare parts were Euro 1,241 million (up 23.2% or 20.6% at constant currency), thanks to higher volumes, richer product and country mix as well as the contribution from personalizations and pricing.

The decrease in Engines revenues (Euro 33 million, down 11.5%, also at constant currency) was attributable to lower shipments to Maserati, as the 2023 contract expiration gets closer.

Net financial charges in the quarter were Euro 4 million, versus Euro 8 million of the prior year, mainly reflecting higher interest income on liquidity held by the Group.
