Italian automaker gave details of its success at a brief press conference
today at the 2007 Los Angeles Auto Show. Worldwide sales
were up 30 percent in 2006 —2,087 units over 2005’s 1,600
units. Of those 2,087 units, 876 of them were sold in the United States, up
37 percent over 2005 U.S. sales. Growth was strong in Europe, where 746
units sold in 2006 represented a 50 percent increase. With 151 cars
delivered, Great Britain saw growth of 81 percent. The growth is attributed
to a stronger dealer network – there were 65 dealers in 2005 and 100
by the end of 2006 – and a growing product lineup. Lamborghini sells
the Gallardo Spyder and the Murcielago LP640 Coupe. Murcielago LP640
Roadster sales are expected to begin in the spring.
