Lamborghini set a new record in deliveries in 2015 thanks to an impressive 28 percent increase in sales. By December 31, the automaker had delivered 3,245 supercars worldwide, which compares to the previous record of 2,530 deliveries set in 2014.
The surge in sales was due mostly to the Huracán, which enjoyed its first full year on the market in 2015. A total 2,242 Huracáns of various types were delivered during the year. Lamborghini also expanded its reach by opening more dealerships. The tally now stands at 135 dealerships spread across 50 markets.
Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann said sales were up in all major regions. Once again the biggest were the United States and China, though no individual figures were given. Winkelmann also said 2016 looks set to be another solid year thanks to a thick order book with requests for new models like the Huracán LP 580-2 and Huracán LP 610-4 Spyder.
Along with the strong sales result, Lamborghini has also announced that it is expanding its workforce in preparation for its new SUV previewed by 2012’s Urus concept. The automaker said more than 150 people, including assembly workers, technicians and engineers, are being added to its current pool of 1,300 staff, and hundreds more will be added once production gets underway in 2018.
