Raging bull: Lamborghini sells record number of vehicles in 2015

3 February, 2016

You know the world is doing OK when Lamborghini announce that they’ve sold more cars in 2015 than any other year in the last 53 years, with their 2015 total hitting 3245 vehicles. According to the company this number stands to grow with the addition of the Urus, a supercar crossover with a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine. Lamborghini expects to sell around 3000 units of this vehicle each year alone, which will double their already impressive sales record.

As part of the Volkswagen Group, Lamborghini have some of the lowest sales figures, with only Bugatti coming in lower, due to the production of multimillion-dollar production vehicles. Even Bentley sell 11,000 units a year, blowing Lamborghini out of the water. Ferrari are currently selling 7000 units a year, which is double that of Lamborghini.

With this many more Lamborghinis floating around, I wonder if we’ll get more press vehicles?


The Jowett Jupiter turns 70

John Ball has always enjoyed tinkering with old boats and cars. He’s old enough to think having gearbox parts on newspaper on the floor of his bedroom, while the relevant car sat waiting on nail boxes, was a normal part of growing up. His passion has always tended towards old British bangers. He reckons he’s fortunate not to have got caught up in the American muscle scene.
John’s love affair with this Jupiter started in December 2015 when, with some time on his hands during a Christchurch trip, he searched online for ‘cars, before 1970 and in Christchurch’.
