Automobili Lamborghini SpA has been setting records for several years, and the 2016 fiscal year is another important milestone in the history of the Sant’Agata company … no less than 3,457 Bulls left the factory gates in 2016 on their way to the lucky owners … up from 3,245 cars in 2016, this is the first time the 3,400 cap has been breached.
This means the worldwide network of 135 official dealers in 50 countries have sold 7% more compared to last year … in fact, when compared to 2010 this means sales have grown 2.6 times from 1,302 units in 2010 to 3,457 in 2016, of which 1,041 cars were sold in the United States of America, the largest market for Automobili Lamborghini SpA. Japan is the second largest market with Germany, Canada, the Middle East and China as runner-up.
Another milestone in the production of the V10 Lamborghini has been reached in 2016, a total of 2,353 Huracan have been delivered, both in Coupé and Spyder version and in 4WD and 2WD configuration, while the 6,000th Lamborghini Aventador has been completed on the assembly line in December, a total of 1,104 V12 were shipped in 2016.
Lamborghini continues to release new and updated models, 2016 was no different with the very limited edition Centenario and Centenario Roadster, but also the special Huracan Avio (limited to 250 units) and the Aventador Miura Homage (limited to 50 cars) and the addition of the Huracan RWD Spyder to the V10 line-up.
An important evolution has recently been introduced as the new Lamborghini Aventador S, more than just an external restyle, the Aventador S can almost be called a completely new car with increased power and a new, more aggressive style now offering four-wheel steering for the first time on a production Bull.
And Lamborghini is preparing even more evolutions of the current line-up together with the introduction of the Urus SUV for 2018 … the expansion of the factory should be ready in 2017 and production of the third model at Sant’Agata will start soon …
