Like many other brands, the beginning of the new year is the time for Lamborghini to announce its results during the previous year. The arrival of Urus in 2018 has brought extremely positive signs. Therefore, 2019 is expected to continue that success. According to the announcement from Lamborghini, this brand has reached 8000 cars in the past year, namely 8205 cars, corresponding to a 43% increase.
