Lamborghini holding 3000 orders for Aventador successor – report

Lamborghini is coming off its best-ever nine months of sales, and is showing no signs of slowing down.

“We already have 18-19 months waiting period for a new car,” Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann told Fox Business.

“We are selling more cars than we are able to produce.”

With the Aventador retired and the Huracan approaching end of life, the Urus SUV – recently updated to feature Performante and S models – will represent the bulk of its deliveries into the end of 2022 and the beginning of 2023.

Moving forward, however, there are new models coming. The successor to the Aventador will feature a hybrid-assisted V12 engine, with Fox reporting Lamborghini already holds 3000 orders.

According to Mr Winkelmann, the new V12 will sound “amazing”.

The Huracan will also be replaced in the coming years, but not before the high-riding Sterrato arrives to farewell it.

In 2022, it’s on track to deliver a record number of cars. With 7430 deliveries in the first nine months of 2022, the brand is up 8.0 per cent on that same point in 2021.

Given it delivered 8405 cars across the whole of 2021, its best-ever year, the Raging Bull is rampaging towards its strongest year of sales yet.

Profits are also up by close to 70 per cent, driven by “the growth in average revenue per car (thanks to the product mix and increased customisations), and the favourable trend in exchange rates”.
