The marque was able to sell 3,457 cars globally and it's the first time, the Sant'Agata Bolognese-based manufacturer's sales surpassed the 3,400 units mark. The company witnessed a 7 percent growth compared to the year before, making it the sixth consecutive year of growth.
Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. said, "In 2016 Lamborghini has proven to be in excellent shape. 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 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, the exotic manufacturer has 135 dealers in 50 countries around the globe. The deliveries of the supercars increased from 3,245 to 3,457 units in 2016.
