The first-half decline of Lamborghini profits, 825 autos delivered this year

Lamborghini had a profit of 7.7 million Dollars (5.4 million Euro) on the 1st half of this year; the reason: its decline of 37 % drop on global car deliveries. This was the 1st Lamborghini decline of profit and growth in these few years. The 2008 profits for this same period were 50 million Dollars.

The first half Lamborghini revenues dropped 43.4 % to 223.7 million Dollars. The carmaker from Italy said delivered 825 autos in total, during this years' first half. The market in America has a decline of 52 % to 207 models sold says Automotive News.

Winkelmann said Lamborghini will keep launching one brand new model every year. 'We are not immune to the global recession' said Stephan Winkelmann - Lamborghini CEO. 'We will maintain the profitability of the company, (and) continue our investment into the future with product technology and innovation alongside a firm ecological stance'.
