America is the brand's biggest market.

Lamborghini is the next exotic automaker to announce a sales record in 2016 after Rolls-Royce and McLaren did the same. The Sant’Agata Bolognese-based supercar manufacturer is reporting an increase of seven percent to a total of 3,457 units globally compared to 3,245 in 2015. This is the first time Lamborghini surpassed the 3,400 units mark following six years of continuous growth. The current result is 2.6 times better than the one in 2010.

“In 2016 Lamborghini has proven to be in excellent shape,” Stefano Domenicali, chairman and chief executive officer of Lamborghini, declared. “The company delivered another record year in terms of sales and continued to outperform key business objectives. This new all-time high is once more confirming the substance and sustainability of our brand, product and commercial strategy. This is a real team achievement and it is all the more remarkable as we are at the same time preparing not only for new models in our super sports car range, but for a company-wide quantum leap in our product portfolio – the third model line.”

Currently, Lamborghini has 135 dealers in 50 countries around the world. A more detailed look into the 2016 stats shows the Italian brand is well-balanced among the three main regions, EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa), America, and Asia Pacific, which each account for approximately one third of global deliveries. What’s more, all of them set new records last year.
