Lamborghini achieved a new all-time high in all key business figures: sales, turnover and profitability achieved levels unprecedented in the 55-year history of the brand.
After crossing the one billion threshold for the first time in 2017, turnover grew by 40% from 1,009 million Euro to 1,415 million Euro in 2018.
Deliveries to customers increased by 51% to 5,750 units with sales records in all major regions: EMEA, America and Asia Pacific.
This strong performance was mainly due to the market launch of the new Super SUV Lamborghini Urus. Its deliveries started only in mid 2018 and added further momentum to Lamborghini’s performance with increased sales of the V12 Aventador and V10 Huracán super sports car models, said the company in a press release.
“Lamborghini has set new historic highs with all key business figures. At the same time, we entered into substantially new dimensions. For the first time in history Lamborghini surpassed the magic mark of 5,000 cars delivered to customers.” said Stefano Domenicali, chief executive officer of Automobili Lamborghini.
“Financial performance showed further increase to a record high. This quantum leap proves the sustainability of our product and commercial strategy. All this is a real team achievement and I would like to thank Lamborghini staff globally for their inspired dedication to our longstanding brand and traditions, and our shareholders for their trust and support.”
Recruitment saw the total number of staff rise to more than 1,750 employees at the end of 2018: +10% compared to 2017, and +70% from five years ago.
Lamborghini is looking to expand further its network of 157 dealers in 50 countries.
