Shares of Ferrari (RACE) - Get Ferrari NV Report roared ahead Monday as the Italian luxury-sports-car maker left analyst earnings expectations in the dust.

Priced at $214,533, the Portofino can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, according to Car and Driver, which calls the Ferrari model "an adept driver's car, with steering that is light and pleasantly communicative."

Starting at $363,730, the 812 Superfast is "not mere hyperbole," with a "top claimed speed of 211 mph" and "aerodynamically shaped body panels" that help the car "slice through the air with minimal drag," the auto magazine noted.

"Robust deliveries" of the two new sports cars helped boost shipments of all models by 9.4% to 2,474, an increase of 212 cars, the company said.

Ferrari also raised its revenue guidance for 2019 to $4.13 billion from $3.9 billion.
