Lamborghini sets a new sales record in its history this year selling 2,013 units of vehicles in the first six months of the 2016 fiscal year. For the first time in a half year period, the company has surpassed the 2,000 unit mark.
On top of that, June 2016 has been a record month in the company’s history with 416 units delivered to customers worldwide.
“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,” said Stefano Domenicali, Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. “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.”
According to Lamborghini, the total sales distribution is well-balanced among the three regions: EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa), America and Asia Pacific, which each account for approximately one third of global sales. The company’s worldwide deliveries to customers increased from 1,882 units in the first half of 2015 to 2,013 units in the first half of 2016, making for a 7% increase over last year. Lamborghini’s largest markets are the USA, Japan, UK, Greater China and Germany.
With a total of 1,370 units sold, the V10 Huracán is the company’s best-selling model in the first half of 2016. Sales figures of the Huracán in the first 24 months after market introduction were up by 87% compared to its predecessor, the Gallardo, in the same period after market launch.
Deliveries to customers of the V12 Aventador on the other hand, totaled 643 units. The success story of the Aventador is reflected also in sales figures for the first 58 months after market introduction, which were up by 127% compared to its predecessor, the Murciélago, in the same period after market launch.
