When Lamborghini released the Huracan, the replacement for the best-selling Gallardo, I knew the supercar maker had a hit on its hands. But I didn’t know whether it would ever sell as well as the Gallardo did, not because of its looks, but simply because the condition of the supercar market. Following a report from Motor Authority, I can now lay to rest my doubts about how successful the Huracan may be.
According to Motor Authority, the Huracan has found a home in 3,000 garages and driveways in the last 10 months and 1,000 of those sales were in America. The 3,000 units sold trumps Lamborghini’s yearly sales in every year since the turn of the millennium, and bests last year’s sales (2,121 units) by nearly 1,000 sales. And we’re talking about only the Huracan; Lamborghini still has the Aventador’s sales to add in there.
Remember, the Aventador is a far more exclusive car and doesn’t sell nearly as well as the Huracan, so it won’t increase the total sales much. According to Motor Authority, with the Aventador’s sales added in, Lambo is on pace to sell a whopping 3,600 units in 2014. That number can easily change, as the supercar market is still volatile, but it is certainly an awesome pace.
The most important item to note here is that the Huracan is now on pace to break the Gallardo’s 14,022-unit sales mark in just five years. Whether or not the Huracan’s sales slow down drastically after the novelty wave breaks is still to be determined, but it can hang its gas cap on the fact that it has easily beaten the Gallardo’s best sales year — its best year was 2008 when it sold 1,844 units.
