Want a New Lamborghini? You may have to join a 2-Year Waitlist

Or even more. Whether you’re looking to update your auto collection with a Urus, an Aventador, or even a Huracan, Lamborghini says that it is sold out for 2022. And 2023. And at least the first half of 2024.

“We already have 18-19 months waiting period for a new car,. We are selling more cars than we are able to produce,” Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann confirmed in a recent interview.

What Lamborghini model is responsible for these high orders?

That would be the Urus, which has sold 4,834 units this year, although the Aventador successor, a hybridized V12 engine set to debut next year, is a close contender: Lamborghini has so far received 3,000 orders for the supercar.

It is not surprising that the Urus is selling so fast. Since it was first unveiled in December 2017, it has managed to top the list of the best-selling Lamborghini marques in the shortest time ever. A few factors are responsible for this.

Perhaps top of the list is the fact that it combines the powerful performance of a sportscar with the space and comfort of an SUV. With a twin-turbo engine that delivers up to 650hp and 627 lb-ft of torque, the Urus can move from 0 to 60mph in mere 3.6 seconds. It is also an all-wheel-drive, making it a comfortable enough machine if you ever find yourself driving off-road.

But the Urus is not just a high-performance SUV that you can just about drive anywhere. It is also a luxurious vehicle which is packed with all the bells and whistles that separate true luxury autos from the others. Its extremely spacious cabin is decked out with the finest materials to make your journey in it as comfortable as possible.

So yes, when you put together all of these features – luxury SUV + high-performance vehicle, on-road and off-road + high functionality + the Lamborghini name – it only makes sense that of the 7,430 units the Italian auto brand sold in the first nine months this year, the Urus takes a larger chunk.

So, what do you do if you want a Lamborghini?

Your guess is as good as ours: join the waitlist. Or, if you would rather not wait for so long, look for a credible reseller offering the exact model you desire. Taking the second option however means that you would be unable to ask the brand for custom features, so maybe waiting till 2024 might be the better alternative for you.
