Lamborghini Builds More Aventadors In Seven Years Than Total Murcielagos Built

Sales

Wait until you read the Huracan production count so far.

It’s amazing how much Lamborghini has accomplished in the past decade and a half. Before Volkswagen Group assumed full control of the Italian supercar company, its finances weren’t looking so good. After going through several owners who couldn’t get Lamborghini right, it was make or break time back in 1998, the year when VW took over.

Not only is Lamborghini about to begin deliveries of the Urus SUV, sales of its two existing models remain stellar. Lamborghini has just announced it has built Aventador number 8,000 and Huracan number 11,000. This milestone Aventador S Roadster, painted in Grigio Telesto, will soon be delivered to its owner in Japan, while the Huracan will remain in Italy.

As we previously reported, Lamborghini’s worldwide deliveries increased by an impressive 11 percent in the first half of this year, compared to the first six months of 2017. A total of 2,327 Lamborghinis reached their new owners, and this does not take into account Urus deliveries, which are only beginning this month. But to give you a better idea as to how successful Lamborghini’s V10 and V12 supercars have become, consider this: A total of 4,099 Murcielagos were built from 2001 until 2010. Its Aventador successor has been on sale for two years less so far and it’s already nearly doubled total Murcielago sales. Even more impressive is the Huracan.

A total of 14,022 Gallardos were built during its 10-year lifetime. In only four years, Huracan production has reached 78 percent of the total Gallardo output. Considering these figures and what they’ll be once the Urus is taken into account, wouldn’t it make sense for Lamborghini to launch a fourth model ASAP? Nope. It’s taking its time on this one, and we likely won’t see that fourth model, whatever it’ll be, until sometime in the middle of the next decade.
