Lamborghini had a big year in 2012. The luxury automaker announced its sales increased by 30 percent last year, which marks an upturn for the company but is still less than where it was before the economic crisis hit. The automaker sold 2,083 cars for a 46 percent growth in revenue, The Detroit Free Press reports.
"In spite of ongoing worldwide financial aid and economic uncertainties, Lamborghini has delivered a very satisfying performance in 2012, confirming the strength of our product and commercial strategy," said Stephan Winkelmann, president of Automobili Lamborghini, as quoted by Left Lane News. "We will continue to invest in the development of our product range to address further growth in the future."
Most of the sales from 2012 consisted of the Gallardo and Aventador LP 700-4. New models entering the market this year, complete with some redesigns and auto repair to make them more attractive, may provide an incentive for prospective buyers to consider Lamborghini.
The previous sales high for Lamborghini came in 2008, when it sold 2,430 vehicles. While the luxury automaker still has a ways to go before it returns to this level, the positive outlook from 2012 should extend into 2013 and potentially maintain these improved levels.
