Despite the financial doom and gloom, which sent several automotive brands to the wall, Lamborghini sales in China have been booming.
Automobili Lamborghini based in the small rural town of Sant’Agata in Italy’s north, has just opened its seventh Chinese dealership in Hangzhou.
China is on track to sell 80 cars this year, which is 23 percent up on the 2008.
In fact, over 26.8 percent of Automobili Lamborghini’s global sales are from the Asia-Pacific region, which is expected to grow even further during 2010.
China is now the world’s largest producer of millionaires and billionaires on the planet, so you can expect to see more raging bulls on the roads than ever.
At this year’s Shanghai International Auto Show and track day events organised by Lamborghini in China, there were more than 300 potential customers and 200 journalists invited to try out the Gallardo LP 560-4 and the Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce.
With demand for the Lamborghini marque at an al time high in China, the Beijing dealership has been expanded with a new and larger showroom and is now the largest sales outlet for the brand in Asia.
