15 months ago, Lamborghini showed the world the Murcielago’ s successor, the Aventador LP700-4. Now, the Italian supercar maker has produced the 1,000th example of the brand’s V12 2-door coupe. The milestone model with chassis number 1,000 was finished in an Argos Orange hue and was sold to a German client named Hans Scheidecker, who received the keys from Lamborghini CEO, Stephan Winkelmann.
The Lamborghini brand has certainly gained popularity among the rich and famous folks. The Murcielago took nearly three years to convince 1,000 customers to buy into the Lamborghini lifestyle, and that supercar went on to sell just 4,099 units during its 9-year run.
Lamborghini says that in order to meet the demand, it increased production from three vehicles a day in the Sant' Agata Bolognese plant in the third quarter of 2011 to 4.5 today. Even so, the Italian automaker claims that the Aventador is booked for the next 18 months.
The Aventador, however, has a long way to go in order to beat Lamborghini's all-time best-seller, the Gallardo, which built its 10,000th copy in 2010 and is fast approaching the 12,000 mark. A roadster version of the Aventador, which is scheduled for next year, may help to increase sales further.
It looks like the eurozone crisis has not dampened the mood of supercar buyers.
