Lamborghini reported that sales of 2021 have been its best ever, surpassing the record sales of 2019. In 2020, the brand sold only 37 units in India.

“In a market like India, it is a perfect car and the results are showing us that we are on the right track. We are ready to let India grow even more…we are able and ready to support new customers that are joining the Lamborghini family,” Scardaoni further added.
