Delivering another new all-time high, for the fourth consecutive half year, confirms the sustainability of our brand, product and commercial strategy. The success is all the more remarkable as we master the unprecedented double challenge of creating new models in our super sports car range, while simultaneously ramping up the production of our highly acclaimed super SUV Urus. This quantum leap in the longstanding history of Lamborghini is only possible due to the passion, dedication and competence of our unrivalled team”.
For the remaining six months, the Sant’Agata Bolognese-based carmaker hopes for further growth which will mainly be helped by the sales of the Urus.
