Lamborghini Hits Sales Records in 2016
The luxury Italian car maker sets a record for itself this year.
We are only half way through 2016 but Lamborghini has already hit a milestone in its books. In the first six months of this year, the luxury car-maker sold 2,013 cars. The month of June saw them deliver 416 cars, which is a feat for a single month.
In 2015, the company sold 1,882 cars within the same period. The jump in sales, has been attributed in part to the expansion of the Huracán family, the introduction of the Spyder as well as the rear-wheel drive version to the international market. “With a solid order bank, not only for the Huracán, but also for our V12 model the Aventador, we aim to outperform the last year’s sales record yet again” said Stefano Domenicali, Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A.
The country with the highest call for Lamborghini’s came from the United States. Following closely behind the Amercian market, is Japan and the United Kingdom coming in third. Unsurprisingly, China stands as the fourth biggest market. The record sales performance tallies with the overall bullish tone in the higher end of the car market and follows Lamborghini’s own previous record achievement.
