Sant’Agata Bolognese, 3/3/2016 – Over the course of the past fiscal year 2015 (12/31/2015) Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. achieved historic highs in the main corporate figures. Global sales of Lamborghini super sports cars increased by 28% from 2,530 to 3,245 units. This growth represents not only an increase in volumes compared to the previous year, but a considerable gain. In fact, the company exceeded its previous threshold of more than 3,000 units sold worldwide.

Turnover increased exponentially from 629 to 872 million euros. This represents an increase of 39%, due to strong sales growth generally and a substantial quote taken by the high-value V12 Lamborghini Aventador derivatives of total Lamborghini sales worldwide.

The Huracán LP 610-4 made 2015 the most successful year in history fordeliveries of V10-engined Lamborghini models. In its first full year on the market, a total of 2,242 Huracan units were delivered to customers.

Deliveries of coupé and roadster versions of the twelve-cylinder model Aventador LP 700-4, as well as the new Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce, amounted to a total of 1,003 units.

Sales volumes were distributed equally across Lamborghini’s three sales regions: Europe (including the Middle East), North America, and Asia. North America and Greater China are the biggest markets, followed by Japan, the UK, the Middle East, and Germany. For the year 2015 almost all markets recorded growth.

Lamborghini’s commercial success continues to be supported by consistent high investments in areas including technical innovation, the expansion of existing facilities, and construction of new production facilities at the Sant’Agata Bolognese headquarters.

Stephan Winkelmann sums up: "With a highly attractive and young model range, consistent growth, a strong financial situation, high profitability and the strong appeal of our brand, 2016 sees us in a better situation than ever before. This success is a reason to celebrate, but even more it represents a responsibility to qualitatively continue this growth. On all levels, Lamborghini is in a strong position to face the future.”
