Lamborghini posts 28-% increase in sales last year

Lamborghini ended 2015 on a high note as the company delivered an all-time record of 3,245 vehicles sold worldwide, an 28-percent increase in sales.

The automaker's record breaking sales was driven by the Huracan. Lamborghini said that the Huracan yielded 2,242 units in 2015.

Aside from the positive sales performance, Lamborghini expanded its dealership network. To date, the Italian automaker has 135 dealerships spread across 50 markets.

Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, commented: "Lamborghini is experiencing strong, steady growth in sales and also in its workforce.”

Lamborghini added that its growth trend is “destined to continue this year [2016], with equally significant numbers.” Since January, 30 new production line workers have joined the company thanks to the system introduced by the new supplementary company agreement.

Other new hirings during the year will include technicians working in quality, R&D, purchasing, industrial and project management divisions, as well as technical production staff.

This move supports the development phase of the Urus, Lamborghini's soon to be sports SUV, that is set to be launched in 2018.
