Lamborghini has made some of its production goals public, adding a little incentive for people to buy more by saying it’ll make a new model line when certain sales numbers are hit.

If and when the automaker reaches its new artificial cap of 8,000 models moved a year, it says it will produce a new grand tourer with a 2+2 seat setup, which is already in the early stages of development. 

Well, what are you waiting for, wealthy people reading this? Buy! Buy! Buy!

Lambo CEO Stefano Domenicali toldAutocar that the magic 8,000 number would provide the financial stability required to successfully add another model line.

“That, in my opinion, is the right number for our portfolio and for our markets,” said Domenicali. “If new markets come in, we will need to make an adjustment to that figure, but that is the right number for us to be a solid business right now.”

For context, Lamborghini sold 5,750 vehicles in 2018, but with the relatively recent success of the Urus SUV bumping sales numbers an impressive 70 per cent for the year, the automaker has momentum on its side.

Lamborghini anticipates that, if the new GT happens, it’ll happen in the next six years or so.

The four-seat Grand Tourer would join the Urus as a practical-ish vehicle from the brand that has been previously limited to its supercar models, the Huracán and Aventador.
