Of Course, The Urus Elevated Lamborghini Sales To New Records Last Year

Last year was a great one for Lamborghini, which managed to deliver an impressive 5,750 vehicles worldwide.

The 51 percent in 2018 increase compared to 2017, and the launch of the Urus last July definitely played a significant role, with 1,761 examples shipped to customers all over the globe.

Sales of the Huracan and Aventador also grew as well. The V10-powered model saw a 5 percent jump, to 2,780, and the V12 supercar sold 1,209 units, up 3 percent.

With 157 official dealers globally, which serve 50 countries, the Raging Bull’s largest market in 2018 was U.S.A. The land of the free accounted for 1,595 deliveries, which represent more than one third of all Lamborghinis sold last year.

In the United Kingdom and Japan, Lamborghini sold 636 and 559 units last year, followed by Germany, Greater China, Canada and Italy, with 463, 342, 316 and 295, respectively. The Italian exotic car manufacturer says that “all these markets increased their deliveries substantially, and marked national historic sales levels”.

Lambo’s year started in January, with the display of the Terzo Millennio in Paris. Two months later, they revealed the Huracan Performante Spyder to the Geneva Motor Show, and in August, the current Nurburgring record-holder, the Aventador SVJ.

2018 also marked the presentations of the SC18 Alston, Huracan GT3 Evo and Urus ST-X Concept, and saw more than half of all sold cars personalized via the Ad Personam program.

Moreover, Polo Storico celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Espada and Islero with several events, and even their Museum registered “an excellent year”, with over 108,000 visitors.

    great news, they deserve the success

    That pretty much seals it that Ferrari will be doing a CUV now. Or have they already committed to one?

      They already announced a “non-SUV” and it’ll be called Purosangue (what a joke of a name for a Ferrari crossover)

  • Wandering_Spirit

    Tastes are tastes. I keep thinking it’s a mediocre car, style wise, and it looks like another anonymous Audi. Even more than the other Transformer-like members of the Lambo family in the Audi era (which i hope will end at some point).

    The Urus doesn’t cost Volkswagen more than a Skoda Kodiaq, they make a lot of money on the Urus

      Good one 😀

    The Urus is so ugly it is vulgar.

  • SteersUright

    Seen a few in Miami already and the front brakes are so unbelievably massive you can’t help but find them awesome. Overall, a stunningly good looking vehicle inside and out that looks like a nice $130k Cayenne competitor and in no way worthy of a $250k price tag im(n)ho.
