Lamborghini delivers 2,000 supercars in the first half of the year image

With a serious boost received from the V10 Huracan, the Sant’Agata Bolognese maker set a new sales record in the first sixth months of 2016.

With 3,245 cars sold to the “raging bull” enthusiasts, Lamborghini surpassed the 3,000-unit mark for the first time last year, hitting a new sales milestone. However, the bar will definitely be raised higher at the end of 2016, as the Italian supercar maker said it delivered 2,013 units through June, with 416 cars handed over last month to customers worldwide.

“Thanks to the enlargement of the Huracan family, including introduction of the Spyder and rear-wheel drive version in markets worldwide in spring this year, we were able to deliver an exceptional sales performance in the first six months of 2016,” CEO Stefano Domenicali said. “With a solid order bank, not only for the Huracan, but also for our V12 model the Aventador, we aim to outperform the last year’s sales record yet again.”

The largest markets for Lamborghini were the USA, Japan, UK, Greater China and Germany, while its global dealership counts 135 shops covering 50 countries. In the first six months, the V10 Huracan accounted for 1,370 units and the twelve-cylinder Aventador drew 643 buyers.

The company is getting ready for the production phase of its third model – the highly anticipated super-sport Urus SUV – set to be launched in 2018 and to generate much bigger profits for the brand.
