Well, that only took nine years.
Before the Volkswagen Group took ownership of Lamborghini, the Italian supercar company didn’t quite build at Ferrari-producing levels. Things are different today as Lamborghini has just announced that over the past nine years it’s built some 7,000 Aventadors and 9,000 Huracans. To break that down, it took Lamborghini six years to build that number of Aventadors and and three years to manufacture all those Huracans.
This all took place under the roof of the Lamborghini Sant’Agata Bolognese production facility, which recently completed a major upgrade and expansion in order to prepare for the upcoming Urus SUV. All told, Lamborghini plans to nearly double the facility’s output in the next few years. The 7,000th Aventador to roll of the line, according to Lamborghini, is an Aventador S Roadster, painted in Grigio Adamas (aka Silver). It will soon head to its owner in the US. Also impressive is the fact that it took a mere three years for the Huracan to reach that 9,000 unit output.
Just to compare, its Gallardo predecessor, which was on the market for an entire decade, saw a total number of 14,000 examples. In other words, Huracan production will very shortly outnumber Gallardo output in far less time. The 9,000th Huracan, painted Blue Nethuns, also happens to be a Huracan Performante, and right now it’s on its way to its owner in Dubai.
