Sant’Agata Bolognese, 8th August 2006
Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. has closed the first half of this year (1
January-30 June2006) with a positive result.
Sales increased during the first six months from 655 to 952 vehicles sold,
45% more than in the same period last year.
This increase is due to the following facts : the market introduction of the
new Gallardo Spyder, the strengthening of our dealer network and
increased international clientele.
“Lamborghini is on the right track” - stated Stephan Winkelmann, President
and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini - “The investments the company has
made, its market presence, the commitment of its collaborators are the
keys to this success”.
“We are sure - reiterated Winkelmann - we will reach another sales record
at the end of 2006 and we will strenghten our worldwide brand awareness”.
Since last Spring 2006 another model has been added to the Lamborghini
range : the convertible Gallardo Spyder which has proved a huge success
in terms of sales and the order books are full for the next 12 months.
The same level of success has been achieved by the new Murciélago
LP640 presented in Geneva this year. The waiting time for this vehicle
currently stands at 12 months.
Automobili Lamborghini has the possibility of achieving sales records in all
major continental markets.
A big increase of 68% is also feasible in the US where the House of the
Raging Bull sold 422 supercars, as opposed to 251 units sold during the
same period last year.
In Europe deliveries increased to 335 vehicles (2005 259, that’s an increase
