Lamborghini has released its sales numbers for the year that just ended, reporting a 9 percent overall drop that it attributed to the 70-day production shutdown last spring in the wake of the global pandemic. On the other hand for those who like to see their glass half full, the automaker saw record sales figures in the second part of 2020, resulting in the best second half-year for deliveries-to-customers in the company’s history.
