If things keep going like they are now, it’s shaping up to be quite a sales year for Lamborghini.
The automaker is breaking sales records in just the first six months of the year. It’s sold over 2,000 supercars in the first half of 2016. That’s the most cars Lamborghini’s ever sold in a six month period, ever. (June also set a record all its own. Over 416 Lambos found new homes worldwide.)
So why such a good year? Well, Lamborghini credits its record sales in large part to the new Huracán Spyder as well as the new rear-wheel drive version introduced earlier this year. So far, Lambroghini’s sold 2,013 cars this year. More than half of them, or 1,370, were V10 Huracáns.
“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,” says Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali.
The Aventador made up 643 of the total models sold.
“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,” adds Domenicali.
January marked the arrival of the Huracán Spyder model. March at the Geneva Motor Show the one-off Centenario debuted. It honored the 100th anniversary of founder Ferruccio Lamborghini’s birth. The model then went into a limited production of 20 coupes and 20 roadsters. All of which have already been snatched up.
March also marked the arrival of the Huracán Avio. Lamborghini only built 250 of them. These super special models came with names, colors, and materials that honored the world of aviation and aeronautics. Then in June, 50 models of the special Aventador Miura Homage arrived. These models celebrated the Miura’s 50th anniversary.
Lamborghini plans to introduce the new Urus SUV to its lineup by 2018.
