The V12 Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 will make its Chinese debut at the Lamborghini stand at the Auto Shanghai 2011. The Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550-2 Tricolore will also be unveiled at a special off-site event held in the Shanghai Expo.
For Lamborghini, China is an important market having achieved over 150% sales growth in 2010 when compared to 2009.
During 2011 Lamborghini will be expanding its dealership network to a total of 20 dealers from that current 14. Lamborghini has state of the art sales and service facilities in Shanghai with two showrooms as well as Guangzhou, Beijing, Chengdu, Shenzhen, Hangzhou, Dalian, Qingdao, Wuhan, Xiamen, Chongqing, Kunming, Tianjin, which make a total of fourteen locations in mainland China.
Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, said: "Our presence at Auto Shanghai 2011 reflects the importance of the Chinese market, which is now our second most significant after the USA. The appeal of the Lamborghini brand in China is illustrated by the launch here of the Gallardo LP 550-2 Tricolore: definitively Italian, and with all the performance and handling a Lamborghini Gallardo promises. Demand for our cars continues to grow: our worldwide order book for the Lamborghini LP 700-4 Aventador is already eighteen months ahead of production."Published 19 April 2011
