Lamborghini Breaks Sales Record; Huracán and Aventador Reach Production Milestones
Lamborghini has announced another increase in worldwide sales. In the first six months of 2018, the Italian super sports car maker delivered a total of 2,327 cars to customers around the world, which represents an increase of 11% compared to the same period last year.
It is also worth noting that these newly-released figures surpass Lamborghini’s full year sales numbers of only five years ago.
And things are likely to get better for the House of the Raging Bull, as this month sees the start of the first customer deliveries of the new Urus SUV.
The half-year growth, therefore, is based mainly on further increased sales of the Huracán and Aventador.
Boosted by rocketing sales of the Huracán Performante, global sales of the Huracán model line with Coupé, Spyder and race-car versions showed an increase from 1,400 to 1,604 units. July also saw Huracán number 11,000 roll off the assembly line.
Likewise, the Aventador this month achieved an important milestone in its history, with 8,000 units produced seven years after its market introduction. And for the first six months of this year, it maintained the high level of the previous period with a total of 673 units delivered.
Overall, the largest single market for Lamborghini once again was the USA, followed by Japan and the UK.
The strongest region, meanwhile, was Europe with an increase of more than 30%. Within Europe, Italy, the UK and Austria showed the highest growth rates.
