Whereas some corporations are actually struggling to remain afloat within the present financial system, it appears Lamborghini managed to maintain a very good tempo in promoting their wonderful supercars from Sant’Agata, the primary quarter of 2021 once more set file figures by no means seen earlier than since 1963, when Automobili Lamborghini SpA was based.
Over a interval of solely three months, from January 2021 to March 2021, they managed to ship a complete of two,422 automobiles to their lucky homeowners, which is a file over their whole historical past, and whereas it’s a 25% improve over the identical quantity from Q1 in 2020, it additionally a really spectacular 22% increased than the identical interval again in 2019, which set the file two years in the past … Lamborghini is on a roll right here.
And it isn’t slowing down, Stephan Winkelmann, President, and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini SpA confirmed they have already got the subsequent 9 months of manufacturing fully offered out, so for the whole manufacturing capability for the remainder of 2021 they’re already absolutely booked as we converse, that’s spectacular contemplating we’re speaking about automobiles which might be nicely over the $200,000 mark every, with some greater than triple that quantity.
As we’d anticipate, the Lamborghini Urus Tremendous SUV is the best-selling Raging Bull in the intervening time, 1,382 items have been despatched out to prospects, the V10 powered Huracán shouldn’t be too far behind with 753 items whereas the getting older flagship, the V12 Aventador nonetheless reached 287 items through the first quarter of 2021 … as normal america, China, and Germany are the markets that appear to be rising once more.
And it appears the V12 Aventador reign isn’t over but, regardless of being unveiled ten years in the past, on the 2011 Geneva Motor Present, we’re nonetheless having to attend at the least one other yr earlier than a successor shall be unveiled, Stephan Winkelmann talked about in an earlier press launch we’re going to see two extra V12 derived fashions later this yr.
In the meanwhile there isn’t any official data but on what these V12 fashions shall be, however protecting in thoughts you may’t truly order any Aventador mannequin anymore right now, what is perhaps on the horizon subsequent for the Lamborghini flagship? You’ll be able to’t stroll into a certified Lamborghini dealership proper now and customized order an Aventador S or Aventador S Roadster anymore, they nonetheless have model new automobiles in inventory, and a only a few are nonetheless incoming, however you may’t change the choices on them, these are inventory fashions. The identical factor with the SVJ Coupe and SVJ Roadster … each have been a restricted version mannequin, and they’re offered out.
The manufacturing unit is outwardly solely constructing the Aventador SVJ, SVJ Roadster, and their ’63’ variations, the ultimate items of the ‘certainly one of ten’ Xago fashions, and naturally the remaining items of the 63 Sian Coupe whereas manufacturing of the 19 Sian Roadster will begin quickly … so what may very well be the 2 V12 primarily based fashions which might be nonetheless coming?
Rumor has it certainly one of these shall be a really restricted manufacturing Countach homage mannequin to rejoice the Countach Prototype’s 50th anniversary, primarily based on the Aventador chassis and V12 engine, there’s point out of a hybrid setup that shall be an evolution of the Sian Supercapacitor, so maybe a bit of extra complete energy, with a value in the identical vary because the Sian. And what may very well be the second mannequin then? An Aventador GT as a swansong to the mannequin, an final track-inspired mannequin just like the Huracan STO then, or maybe a one-off just like the SC20 for one more high-net-worth buyer?
Who is aware of, however it’s clear if you learn between the strains of the Q1 outcomes press launch there isn’t any intention of an Aventador successor in 2021 already, the present manufacturing capability is already offered out, so that they want the Aventador manufacturing line going till at the least the tip of this yr, and so they nonetheless have two extra V12 fashions to unveil, which may even should be constructed in the long run, are these already offered out and calculated into manufacturing but?
My guess is that we’ll be seeing the primary Aventador successor in early 2022, most likely the preliminary pre-production fashions of the successor shall be constructed on the particular Analysis & Growth facility in Sant’Agata whereas the precise manufacturing line contained in the manufacturing unit will get transformed from constructing the Aventador into the brand new mannequin, which as everyone knows, will include a Hybrid V12 initially … I for one can’t wait to see what Lamborghini comes up with subsequent …
