Honestly, I’m not really that surprised at this news, but I am pretty ecstatic.
Lamborghini has had an influx of cash, components, and new buyers all stemming from their purchase by VW. With the Gallardo being killed off in favor of the new Huracan, Lambo was set up for success in 2015, but we weren’t sure if the public would really react to it as positively as they did the Gallardo. We were all clearly wrong and the insertion of the Huracan was hugely advantagous for the Italian bulls.
According to Autoblog, Lambo sold an impressive 3,245 cars last year. That doesn’t seem like much, but when your cars are well over $200,000 a pop, it adds up fast. This also shatters their previous record from 2014 where they sold 2,530 in total. And this number seems that it will only go skyward with the introduction of the new SUV, the Urus, set to arrive in 2017-2018.
We’re curious to see if this new success translates to a refresh for the Aventador or even another model either below or above the Huracan that we don’t know Lambo is even working on yet. I’m hopeful for that, but that remains to be seen as there have been no rumors of such a car. The Urus will absolutely boost sales because the elite do love their SUVs as evidenced by the Range Rover marque going nuts in recent years and with Bentley entering the market with the unfortunately named Bentayga.
All I know is that the more supercars that are produced, sold, and driven, regardless of the automaker, is a good thing and I’m on the edge of my seat to see what Lamborghini has in store for the near future.
