Lamborghini delivered 2,013 cars to clients all over the world in the first six months of the 2016 fiscal year to set a new sales record. That’s a growth of seven per cent for the storied carmaker compared to last year’s 1,882 units in the same time period.
June was a particularly strong month as it shifted 416 supercars. The most popular model sold was the Huracán with 1,370 finding happy homes worldwide and 643 Aventadors, including the 5,000th one – a roadster painted Rosso Bia especially for the Italian market. And with the orders already on the books for the rest of the year, the supercar maker could surpass 2015's record volume of 3,245 vehicles.
Introducing new models such as the Huracán Spyder (which we drove in Miami) and the Centenario (just 20 coupé and 20 roadster versions were built and all 40 have sold) has sure helped and showing off special editions like the Huracán Avio at the Geneva motor show (just 250 will be built) and Aventador Miura Homage which made waves at Goodwood (just 50 will be built to celebrate the Miura’s 50th anniversary) has kept interest high with enthusiasts. And with many more big motor shows still to come this year, there’s always the possibility of more new models or special editions at least from Lamborghini. But, when the Urus SUV is with us (sometime in 2018), the numbers will absolutely see a massive spike because this is the segment to be in. With a biturbo V8, we can expect rapid performance from the Urus and we wouldn’t be surprised if Lambo doubles it sales figures up to 6,000 units.
“Thanks to the enlargement of the Huracán 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,” said Stefano Domenicali, Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A.
