Lamborghini Valuation Hits $11 Billion Thanks To Strong Urus Sales

Since deciding to build a luxury performance SUV, Lamborghini has shot up in value, especially with the Urus now going strong in terms of sales. The Italian automaker is reportedly worth some $11 billion, which makes it a viable IPO candidate for the VW Group.

According to Bloomberg Intelligence, new incoming models such as a hybrid supercar scheduled for next year, will help lift margins beyond 30%. As it stands now, Lamborghini is actually worth about as much as Ferrari, as reported by Autonews Europe.

“VW’s partial IPO of Traton trucks sets the stage for further corporate restructuring, which should include a Lamborghini IPO, in our view,” said Bloomberg Intelligence’s Michael Dean and Gillian Davis. The Traton IPO from June is regarded as “the first tangible result from an asset review that has lasted three years and counting.”

The VW Group’s current structure has proved to be quite tension-prone. There are no fewer than 12 vehicle brands involved and some have been mooted as possible sale candidates, such as Ducati. Like the latter, Lamborghini is also owned by Audi, which in turn is controlled by the VW Group.

“There is currently no decision to change the structure of the Audi group,” said the VW Group in an e-mailed statement.

As for sales, Lambo numbers went up 51% last years, peaking at 5,750 units, of which more than 1,700 were Urus SUVs. Right now, the U.S. is the company’s single biggest market, where they sell almost three times as many cars as in their “runner-up” region, the UK.

    When is the Urus SV or SVJ coming? I thought a lighter weight version of this was coming out this year?

    • lagunas3ca

      When the RS Q8 is out.

  • wait a minute

    now Ferrari will be rethinking whether they should do an SUV. Maybe a rebadged Maserati Levante.

    • Adi

      The SUV is already in the works and it will supposedly be called Purosangue. A quote from article from January 2018: “Marchionne told journalists at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show that Ferrari’s plans now include an SUV, or FUV (Ferrari Utility Vehicle).”

    • boo boo the fool

      the Maserati is already trash, if Ferrari rebadged that, it would be brand suicide

  • Thetruthísntalwayspopular

    This is why GM are so stupid…think what they could have done with corvette? Always late to the party.

    • boo boo the fool

      gm is literally so annoying imo, in the past they could make an ok car but it would sell because it’s GM. But now it’s not like that, people now want the best car and they still aren’t changing. Literally Kia, Hyundai, and VW are making better cars than they were 10 years ago and people are noticing. GM needs to change (also I want Saab instead of buick)

      • Ryan

        Is VW making better cars? I feel like they aren’t that impressive and horrible reliability.

  • Bash

    That will piss off Ferrari, if it has already! I also hope that doesn’t make them want to ale another baby SUV, or a bigger version in that matter.

    Thx for mentioning the company’s structure!
    Lambo is owned by VW… iam so sick of reading it over and over again.
    Anyways it’s impressive considering the estimated price Audi bought the company for and into what it turned out to be in 2019.

    • boo boo the fool

      how much did Audi buy it for

      • Daniela Wolf

        No official data available just assumptions by media.
        Some sources assume that between 80-110 or 150-200 Million DM were paid

        1 DM ~ 0,51€
        >> 40-100 Million €

    Cayenne did great things for Porsche, I hope Urus does great things for Lambo!
