Sant’Agata Bolognese/Zürich, 6 May 2019 – Automobili Lamborghini opens a new dealership in Zürich: the fifth official Lamborghini showroom in Switzerland. On this occasion, the new Huracán EVO makes its local debut, following its world premiere at the Geneva International Auto Show in March 2019.
The opening event, attended by Automobili Lamborghini Chief Commercial Officer Federico Foschini, hosted more than 250 guests and VIPs in the 1.000m2 showroom and aftersales center.
“Switzerland is an important market for Lamborghini, not only in sales numbers for which it ranks in the top ten worldwide, but also for the number of car connoisseurs within the country. The efforts by our local partner in opening this new dealership reveal our brand’s growing appeal, not only among a broader audience attracted by the Lamborghini Urus, but also from our super sports car clients who came here to admire the brand new Huracán EVO,” said Federico Foschini. “The Huracán EVO is the very definition of evolution: it is a step ahead, redefining segment parameters. It is remarkably easy to drive, while delivering the most responsive, sensory and agile driving experience, in every environment.”
Lamborghini Zürich is operated by Hirsch AG, and is the second Lamborghini dealership for the group following the opening of St. Gallen earlier this year.
Located in Kloten, in the northern part of Zürich, the facility incorporates the Lamborghini brand’s new corporate design, boasting an exclusive lifestyle-inspired Ad Personam studio for bespoke personalization, and a generous area for showcasing the brand’s latest supercars. The new Lamborghini Zürich showroom encompasses a luxurious reception area, a Lamborghini merchandise boutique, a VIP lounge, offices and the car workshop, conceived to offer an outstanding experience for customers.
