Another record year for Automobili Lamborghini SpA - the STORY

2087 supercars built and sold in 2006

Sales up over 30%

The Detroit Motor Show is the right venue to announce Automobili Lamborghini's official figures for 2006 : another annual sales record.

In the last twelve months the House of Sant'Agata Bolognese has built and sold 2087 cars, which represents a growth of 30.4% compared to the year before (1600 cars). This is the highest total ever achieved in Lamborghini's history.

A total of 876 units were sold in the United States, which remains the main market for Automobili Lamborghini. Sales grew by 37% compared to the year before (640 cars).

In Europe, sales rose to 746 units, a growth of 50%. Particularly strong sales were recorded in Germany with 234 units, an increase of 41% and Great Britain with a tremendous improvement of 81% and 151 cars delivered.

In the home market of Italy, 134 units were sold, a growth of 38%, which was another strong performance.

"2006 was an exceptional year. This success was due to the Lamborghini dealer network and our products", said Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini.

The worldwide dealer network has been strengthened, passing from 65 dealers in 2005 to 100 dealers by end of 2006.

The Lamborghini product line was expanded with more new models introduced in 2006 than in any other year of the company's history.

The Gallardo Spyder was launched on the markets in early 2006, while the extreme Murciélago LP640 Coupé was introduced in summer 2006. The new Murciélago LP640 Roadster was presented in November 2006 and will be launched in early spring 2007.
