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.

Overall, the Italian firm delivered 7,430 vehicles globally in 2020, down from last year’s 8,205, with the Urus accounting for 4,391 units. The Huracan was chosen by 2,193 customers, while another 846 went for the Aventador flagship supercar.

“The 2020 results are a clear demonstration of the excellent work that, despite the difficulties of a year of global challenges, was carried out by the entire Lamborghini team with enormous dedication and a spirit of resilience”, said President and CEO Stephan Winkelmann. He added that company will be “consolidating the product range, seeking new business prospects and further strengthening the brand” in “a challenging 2021”.

The Raging Bull’s top market in 2020 was the United States, where they shipped 2,224 cars. Another 607 were sold in Germany, 604 in mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau, 600 in Japan, 517 in the United Kingdom and 347 in Italy. The highest growth of 75 percent was recorded in South Korea, which accounted for 303 vehicles.

Lamborghini expanded its portfolio last year with the introduction of the Huracan EVO RWD Coupe and Spyder, Sian Roadster, Essenza SCV12, Huracan STO and SC20. They also achieved two production milestones, with the 10,000th Urus and 10,000th Aventador leaving the assembly line, and they teamed up with LEGO to bring the Sian FKP 37 1:8 scale model to market. A charitable initiative was launched with Lady Gaga last month and Stephan Winkelmann grabbed the reins from Stefano Domenicali, while also maintain the presidency of Bugatti.

If you were planning on taking a snack break, then you have come to the right place, because you might want to consider spending the next 8+ minutes watching the Alpine A110S being driven hard on the Nurburgring.

Filmed from the cockpit just a few days ago during a tourist session, the video shows the French sports car overtaking quite a few much more powerful vehicles and breathing down the neck of others, with the driver showing some amazing skills.

The A110S can handle not only corners, but long straights as well, with the 0 to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) acceleration taking 4.4 seconds, or almost one second quicker than the Porsche 718 Cayman T. It will run out of breath at 162 mph (260 km/h), 9 mph (14 km/h) less than its German rival which is 8 HP (8 PS / 6 kW) and 44 lb-ft (60 Nm) of torque more powerful.

Speaking of power, the A110S has 288 HP (292 PS / 215 kW) and 236 lb-ft (320 Nm) produced by the 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder shared with the rest of the A110 lineup and with the latest Renault Megane RS models, connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and rear-wheel drive.

Compared to the Pure and Legende variants, the S is a bit more powerful and features uprated brakes, revised suspension, recalibrated Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and wider tires.

UK pricing for the A110S starts at £56,810 (equal to $77,449), or £4,750 ($6,476) more than the 718 Cayman T.

 

Several changes have been made to this year’s Formula 1 calendar, which has been officially revised to exclude Melbourne as the season opener. Instead, the new season will get under way in Bahrain on March 28.

The Australian Grand Prix has been pushed back to November 21, while Imola is making its return on April 18 as the second race of the year, replacing the Chinese Grand Prix.

On May 2, there will be a currently pending race, which F1 officials will announce in due course.

“It has been a busy start to the year at Formula 1 and we are pleased to confirm that the number of races planned for the season remains unchanged,” said Stefano Domenicali, president and CEO of Formula 1. “It is great news that we have already been able to agree a rescheduled date for the Australian Grand Prix in November and are continuing to work with our Chinese colleagues to find a solution to race there in 2021 if something changes.”

“We are very excited to announce that Imola will return for the 2021 season and know our fans will be looking forward to the return of Formula 1 after the winter break and our revised season opener in Bahrain. Obviously, the virus situation remains fluid, but we have the experience from last season with all our partners and promoters to adapt accordingly and safely in 2021,” he concluded.

In other recent Formula 1 news, there’s been a surprise development at the soon-to-be Alpine F1 (currently still Renault F1) with the dismissal of team principal Cyril Abiteboul. He will be replaced by Laurent Rossi, the Director of Strategy and Business Development of Groupe Renault who takes over as Alpine CEO and will control the F1 team as well. Alpine’s blue, red and white cars will be driven by Fernando Alonso and Esteban Ocon.
