2016 proved biggest year yet for Lamborghini

Record sales and increased profits for supercar brand…

Lamborghini had some difficult years, however under the ownership of the Volkswagen Group the good times just keep on rolling.

The supercar manufacturer has just confirmed 2016 sales and profit data and everything looks quite rosy.

For Lamborghini in 2016 sales increased by 7% to 3,457 units, while turnover was up 4% to $1.26 billion (AUD).

Leading the sales charge in 2016 was the Huracán with 2,353 sales, (up from 2,242 in 2015), while the Aventador increased from 1,003 units in 2015 to 1,104 units in 2016.

But whats making the Lamborghini team even more optimistic is the prospects of the first Lamborghini SUV – the Urus.

Lamborghini is tipping the new model to double current production/sales figures when it comes to market this year (in Australia in 2018).
