Lamborghinis are selling as quickly as they drive, with the exotic Italian sports cars flying out of showrooms at an unprecedented pace in 2015. Last year's sales totaled a record 3,245 cars worldwide, and the company is expanding rapidly to meet this booming demand.
"Lamborghini is experiencing strong, steady growth in sales and also in its workforce," said Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. "We are getting ready for groundbreaking changes with the introduction of our third model in 2018, which points to stable, sustainable growth for our company."
That growth has meant hiring 150 new workers, bringing the company's total to 1,300 employees. More than 600 workers joined Lamborghini in the last five years, as the company has expanded to meet the demand brought by its increasingly desirable dream machines.
Lamborghini is pushing its zoomy image forward, with a significant showing by the Huracan in international sports car racing for 2016. At the same time, it is launching an amazingly sexy SUV, the Urus, whose sales are expected to fuel increased growth and the need for still more workers.
By the time the Urus goes into production in 2018, Lamborghini will have doubled the size of its factory and add 500 more new employees. This is all good news for Lamborghini lovers, because it means we will be seeing even more of these Italian beauties on the streets.
