Stephan Winkelmann is unstoppable.
Being both the President of Bugatti as well as the President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini can’t be easy, but Stephan Winkelmann is absolutely crushing it. Both brands, Bugatti and Lamborghini has just announced their first quarter numbers and both set records.
First up is Bugatti, who actually had the best quarter in the company’s entire history. In the first quarter of 2021, Bugatti delivered more vehicles than ever before, breaking all records and self-assigned targets.
“It fills me with joy and pride that, despite the pandemic, we started the year very well and were able to take more orders than ever before. Even if face-to-face contact is still rare in 2021 and the number of digital meetings have increased, we were able to maintain a relationship and contact with our customers and friends of the brand, ”says Winkelmann.
Lamborghini also posted record-setting numbers that are truly astounding. In the first quarter of 2021, the Italian automaker delivered 2,422 cars which was an increase of 25% over the same period of 2020 and 22% higher than the first quarter of 2019. These figures make this the best first quarter ever for Lamborghini. Lamborghini notes that the Urus was their most popular model with 1382 deliveries, followed by the Huracan at 753 and Aventador at 287.
“We have a very positive outlook ahead for this year, thanks to an order bank that has grown by 25% compared to the first quarter of 2020 and already covers nine months of production. We are ready to pursue the new objectives we have set and to respond concretely, with significant innovations, to the moment of extensive transformation that is affecting the automotive industry as a whole,” says Winkelmann.
