Automobili Lamborghini continues its global growth and marks new historic highs: 8,205 cars delivered in 2019
Sant’Agata Bolognese, 13 January 2020 – In Fiscal Year 2019 (1 Jan – 31 Dec), Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. continued its strong global growth. With an increase of 43% from 5,750 to 8,205 cars delivered to customers around the world, the Italian super sports car brand achieved sales growth for nine years in a row and set another historic sales record.
Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini comments: “The year 2019 was the most successful in our history. The team delivered another substantial sales increase, taking us to unprecedented historic highs. In only two years we more than doubled our sales numbers, a success that cannot be overrated. This clearly proves the power of our brand and the quality and sustainability of our product and commercial strategy. Our Super SUV Urus sold almost 5,000 units, a number that comes close to our total sales volume in 2018. With new content and new technologies our V10 and V12 super sports cars models retained their market success. Simultaneously we further increased our high brand awareness, especially with the younger generations, having multiplied our following on social media channels to more than 40 million. All this is a real team achievement and I would like to take this opportunity to thank every single Lamborghini team member for their inspiration and dedication to our brand, as well as our shareholder and group for their continued support.”
On a technological level, Lamborghini has decided to strategically develop hybrid variants for all next-generation super sports car models. Lamborghini also continues its strategy in 2020 of presenting new models and initiatives within exclusive and personalized settings and events for customers and media. In this context Lamborghini will not be present at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show 2020.
New models 2019
The year started with the presentation of the new Lamborghini Huracán EVO, Lamborghini’s latest generation of the V10, four-wheel drive super sports car model. At the Geneva Motor Show in March the new Lamborghini Huracán EVO Spyder, with its own unique personality and driving excitement that only an open-top car can offer, joined its coupé counterpart as the second model in the V10 Huracán EVO line-up.
Lamborghini Polo Storico
Based at the company’s HQ in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Lamborghini Polo Storico is the specialized unit dedicated to the restoration and certification of Lamborghini classic models (from the Lamborghini 350 GT to the Diablo).
In September Polo Storico organized the second Lamborghini & Design Concorso d'Eleganza, this time from Venice to Trieste, in which 36 classic Lamborghini cars produced between 1964 and 1991, as well as contemporary models, took part to celebrate the work of architect Gae Aulenti.
Lamborghini Museum Mudetec
The Lamborghini Museum Mudetec in Sant’Agata Bolognese registered an excellent year in terms of visitors. The museum is open daily, including Sundays, from 9:30 am to 7 pm (April- October) and from 9:30 am to 6 pm (November – March), and special exhibitions run alongside the permanent collection of historic Lamborghini models.
Lamborghini Squadra Corse
In January, Lamborghini Squadra Corse, the motorsport department of Automobili Lamborghini, won the legendary 24 Hours of Daytona with the new Huracán GT3 EVO for the second year in a row.
In 2019 Lamborghini Squadra Corse also set a new benchmark, with over 350 racing Huracáns produced to date. Lamborghini Squadra Corse is one of the few motorsport departments in the world that manufactures its own racing cars on the same production line as the road car, inside the Sant’Agata Bolognese factory.
