Commenting on the development, Automobili Lamborghini SpA President and CEO Stephan Winkelmann said: "In spite of ongoing worldwide financial and economic uncertainties, Lamborghini has delivered a very satisfying performance in 2012, confirming the strength of our product and commercial strategy".

The company will continue to work on the development of its product range to address further growth in the future, he added.

"The growth is driven by the first full year of sales for the new Aventador LP 700-4 (922 units), while the Gallardo confirms its status as the most successful Lamborghini ever with a stable performance compared to 2011 (1,161 units sold in 2012)," the statement said.
