LAMBORGHINI COMPANY PROFILE

Founded in 1963, Automobili Lamborghini is headquartered in Sant’Agata Bolognese, in Northern Italy. The Lamborghini Huracán, which made its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show in 2014, in the Huracán Spyder and rear wheel-drive version released in 2015, are the successors to the iconic Gallardo. With their innovative technology and exceptional performance, they redefine the driving experience for luxury super sports cars. The Coupé and Roadster versions of the Aventador and the Aventador Superveloce are the new benchmark in the world of luxury super sports cars with V12 engine. With 135 dealerships throughout the world, Automobili Lamborghini has created a continuous series of dream cars over half a century that include the 350 GT, Miura, Espada, Countach, Diablo and Murciélago, as well as limited editions such as the Reventón, Sesto Elemento and Aventador J.

Business Case

In this business case, we will assess the current competitive scenario and strategic pillars of Lamborghini and scrutinise a potential strategic move of Lamborghini from a business model based on superior performance product into a continuous sustainable long-term relationship among brand – sales network – Lamborghini user base.

This will require simultaneously a cultural change at factory as well at independent Lamborghini’s points of sale to eventually lead into an enrichment of the current customer base profile as well as an enlargement of it to include wider and unexplored territories of conquest.

The students will discuss and analyse the challenges, and devise an action plan to realise the strategic change.

Students will be provided with all the necessary materials before their arrival to be able to learn more about the topic.
