Lamborghini begins construction of first Russian dealership
With Russia being the world’s largest country in terms of land size, one may think that they’d have access to all the cars imaginable. Furthermore, with Russia slowly growing in wealth, expensive cars are now becoming all too common and both the Bentley EXP 9 F and Lamborghini SUV’s are being created with Russia in mind. However, there has long been a gaping hole in Russia’s artillery and that was easy access to a Lamborghini dealership.
This initially surprised us greatly, and will no doubt surprise you also, that a country this large with such an incredible love for high performance cars isn’t home to a dealership from one of the world’s most renowned supercar manufacturers. As a result, all Lamborghini’s currently purchased in Russia are either second-hand or imported thousands of miles in from surrounding countries.
However, that’s all about to change as Automobili Lamborghini recently teamed up with the Burevestnik Group to officially begin development and production of a new dealership in Moscow, the country’s capital.
The construction of this new dealership will allow all Russian citizens to have a taste of Lamborghini and how they operate, with merchandise and other accessories also set to be sold at the dealership. While the new place is being constructed, a temporary showroom and sales office has been set up in the Crocus City Mall.
Additionally, the dealership will also provide all current Lamborghini owners residing in Russia and all prospecting buyers the ability to have their cars serviced in their home country, by specialists rather than just any odd mechanic around the corner. As a result, sales in Russia are likely to increase exponentially, and before long, Lamborghini should be turning a profit after repaying off all the construction costs.
A very smart move on Lamborghini’s part in our opinion.
