As for the numbers, majority of the 2019 sales were driven by the Urus which accounted for 4,962 units. In comparison, the Urus finished ahead of Huracan's 2,139 units. While the third most selling model was the Aventador which stood at 1,104 units.

The gap between the world's top selling Lamborghinis suggests that Urus has become one of the most significant models in the company's line-up. Also, Lamborghini was actually one of the first supercar makers to cater to the evolving demands in the luxury SUV segment and this was enough to give Urus a head start.

The brand's global turnover grew by 28% to 1.81 billion in 2019 from 1.42 billion, a year before. Lamborghini also went on to receive the Top Employer Italia certification for 7th year in a row.
